We are soooooo bombarded on a daily basis with social media with who’s who and what there doing, but mostly showing off what they have than the person inside. I ask myself this question, “Is this who they really are?” Does this person REALLY look like this and do they really take THAT many vacations a year? If so, whats the motive? What do these people do to live the life of a celebrity yet not be one. And why on earth would anyone want to broadcast how much $$$ there making? Seriously why? That to me is like when someone miraculously hits the lottery and tells the world they are beyond rich, which just means they have f-you money and all the relatives they didn’t know they had are now knocking.
I’m not hating on those who are more fortunate than I, I’m just curious to know there “Why?” I’m also the kind of soul that finds myself searching for what truth lies beneath the surface. I’m interested in people. I like building relationships from the “core” and not from the surface. Social media can be dangerous but it can very well be a blessing to many. Especially those who desperately feel alone and need a “like” to lift them up. Sometimes that can make a huge difference in someones day! That’s awesome because I do like those likes! Comments are special too 🙂
I understand being a little weary of letting it all out there, the real you, not just the “show” you. I think it’s important to remember that what we see is not always what “is.” What we communicate online, as we all know from catfish, is not always the real deal. Lies are way to easy to make than “real” friends on social media. Now I’m NOT saying that it’s impossible to make a real friend from Instagram, Facebook, twitter. What I am saying is IF your anything like me, real friends are the ones that you meet out. Like in real life, in person. You know, when you actually communicate with your voice and not your fingers on a phone or laptop. I like those kinds of people who take time to meet up and have a real authentic conversation in person. That beats a “like” on social media any day.
AGAIN, I’m not knocking social media, I have instagram and facebook like most of the world (honestly its not easy for me). I just realize as I age I crave more under the surface, authentic, relationships. That’s all I’m saying.
By the way, If your on Instagram look me up (cassandrapavolic), I promise I keep it real!
