With the advent of social media, the need to share every positive and negative moment of our life has become such a norm.
The question I have started to ask myself is this: ‘Is this a necessity?’
I have started to become more aware of myself and my surroundings which has meant I have become less inclined to post ‘live’. Any moments I want to keep a record of, I take a picture or video, put my phone away and then enjoy the moment.
I feel like I have recently fallen victim to the pressures of having to post every ounce of my life as it unravels.
My motto in life is whatever moments are private, are the most precious. I want to be more present and care less about posting and more about living the memories I want to create.
I do not think there is any harm in posting whatever one feels comfortable posting. The most important thing is about comfort. As I get older, I want to share less. My close family and friends will be a part of my deepest and more valuable moments and that is all I need in life.
