Itโ€™s a Social Media Thing

Recently I have blocked a lot of friends/online friends on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.


One of my Best Friends used to say that she gets really depressed whenever she sees some posts on Facebook about some of our friends becoming successful in their career and their “life”. I must admit that I also feel this too (before) but I have learned to avoid feeling jealous/envy because really it’s all in the mind.

I guess it helped that my partner never really get jealous about other people’s posts on Facebook. I don’t know if it is what he really feel but we had one conversation where he mentioned that he doesnโ€™t really care, he likes to gossip on facebook though hehehe. But he doesnโ€™t compare in terms of “success”.

Also, I must press that not everything you see online is real, even stories and news are not always true.

But, its hard since we live in a world where social media is domineering. As they say, If you are not on Facebook, you’re not existing. Take it or leave it.

Anyway, I post a lot! I can’t help it, I like seeing old photos, memories and I think, Facebook and Instagram helps me to restore these memories. Not to mention how I loveeee posting or sharing the special moments of my Son. But what really bothers me is when people start dropping sarcastic personal comments about what I post on social media (well, at least they say it in front of me) I know I should have seen it coming because I am all out there but do you really need to provide comments offensively? To think that most of my posts are in my stories and you have to option to view it or not.

I know I can’t really control what they say or thinkย  (also I don’t really care what other people think, I will post what I want and you do have to option to view it or not) so my best option is to mute my posts from them to avoid getting their unwanted attention and comments.ย  So if you are my friend online and you can still see my posts/stories then you’re not who Im talking about. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

It would be good if we support everyone whatever they want or even post (unless its socially offensive) but putting them down without any valid reason is a big NO NO NO.

What’s your say on social media? Do you post a lot? Or not? Have you received sarcastic comments from people just because you posted something?

  1. Love this. I wonder why people need to say something negative. We had a national tragedy this year, and it made really re-think how I use my words. And I often tell my very opinionated friends that their “righteous indignation” won’t change any on “the other sides’ viewpoint”. Their angry words will just encourage a martyred feeling.. I have spent the last few months consciously monitoring what I say when I comment. And if I can will try words of support.. it isn’t that difficult.. good luck!

    1. Exactly! Can you imagine how uplifting and wonderful it will be if everyone would just encourage everyone on social media? (more so outside the online world) Words are too powerful if we just use it appropriately.

      1. Yup… but, as I tell my kids, the only person who’s behaviour you’re in control of, is your own..

        Maybe people like you and me can continue the positivity.. ๐Ÿ˜Š
