Social media makes some people feel like they deserve full access to your life.
I remember when I made a post announcing the birth of my daughter, someone sent me a message asking me if I adopted because I didn’t post any photos of my pregnancy. I was flabbergasted! I couldn’t believe someone would ask such a question. And then I started reflecting on what I posted on social media.
I looked at how many photos I had of my family and friends and decided that everyone doesn’t deserve access to my happiness.
So now I am really conscious of what I post, and who I share it with. Not only on social media but in real life. I truly love seeing what everyone else posts and sometimes, social media is where I learn exciting news! I’m just a bit more private nowadays.
Share what you feel at your comfort level, not what society tells you to share. ❤️
