Took a little hiatus from social media for awhile...no Instagram, no Facebook, tried to limit Snapchat, etc...it's been nice. It's sad when our day tends to revolve around the likes our latest picture got, or the "dm's" that were received because of a selfie...it's an ego boost and a destroyer of self esteem all at the same time. You start to notice who isn't liking your stuff, but then they privately message you and it's kind of like, screw you, sending me a dm to tell me you liked the new pic, but not actually liking it...don't you want your friends knowing that you know me? (I'm guilty of it, too. Though I don't lurk anyone's profile -- ain't nobody got time for that -- but sometimes I'll see a pic on my feed and keep on scrolling, even when I want to like it, if only to get their attention). I think a lot of us are guilty of letting stubbornness go to our heads. Wouldn't it be nice if we could just like a picture when we want to without overthinking it? Or send the first text? Or not always worry that being honest sounds desperate?
