I love social media. I love watching and sharing funny videos and memes with all my friends. I love being able to share my struggles and my accomplishments on my Facebook page because I know that the people I accept in that part of my life just surround me with so much love.
However, recently it’s come to my attention that that is not always the case. Most of my pages are private and often times I choose not to accept requests from certain people because I simply don’t want them knowing the information I put out there about me. But lately I’ve had to pull back from the things I post on social media because there are people who I’ve given access to follow/friend me on my pages and they’ve taken it upon themselves to spread MY personal life to people that I would have preferred not to know where I work or where I hang out and who for that matter and yes it’s upsetting.
But it’s also rewarding that some people live such boring lives that they look to my life for excitement. Yes, me, this awkward flat chested tall girl with acne who didn’t talk to anyone throughout elementary, middle and high school has grown up to be the topic of discussion in some people’s mouths.
