I keep hearing all this crap about people who post pictures of their spouses/significant others/kids/friends on social media.
Basically, the underlying idea is – if you post pictures of any of the above people in your life, you are CLEARLY miserable. You definitely cry yourself to sleep at night and you wake up each morning hoping for the worst – all while using pictures to cover up the truth of your terrible, horrible, no good, very bad life.
Well SORRY, this just isn’t true.
As a serial poster with a strong desire to share my life with my friends and family on Facebook, I can tell you that the exact opposite happens to be true.
I am the opposite of miserable.
In fact, I have never been happier, thankyouverymuch, hence my desire to be so open with my life.
Here’s the deal – I wear my heart on my sleeve – always have, always will.
This goes for being mushy in person AND on social media.
I look at the photos in my camera roll constantly, smile to myself while doing so, and think, “DAMN, this is too good to keep to myself.”
Yea, yea, I know deep down that you all could care less what my husband, daughter and I did for my birthday.
I know you roll your eyes at yet another post of my delicious daughter getting one month older.
I know my husband gets shit from his friends about being equally as mushy as his mushball wife.
And I KNOW, the gossipers, the haters, and the actual miserable people I am still “friends” with on Facebook use my annoying posts as reason to talk.
But guess what – it’s all good.
I hereby stand against the Negative Nancy’s who are claiming that other peoples display of happiness is a cover-up for something more.
It’s not. It’s as simple as that.
No hidden agenda. No big scam.
Let the happy people be happy – let the serial posters post.
And when I stop overdoing it with the uploads, THAT’S when you’ll have to worry.
