All the time people complain about people not being “real” on Facebook
All the time people complain about people on Facebook only showing pieces of what is true or airbrushed versions of what is not true

Well, here is what I have to say about that:

A platform is what you make it
You have a choice about how you show up
And you have a choice about whom you connect with and see on Facebook.

The people I see in my newsfeed are sincere, caring, supportive and real

Yes, they do not show every aspect of their life
And yes, they post pictures where they feel beautiful
But that doesn’t feel insincere to me
I appreciate people who make the effort to share their world with me
And I am so appreciative to Facebook for what it has brought into my life

As an introvert, I have always felt awkward around people
Because of this, I can often show up as a distorted version of myself.
But social media has afforded me a way to connect in a whole different way that feels true and deep, yet gives me space to share when ready, and in my own time.

I was talking to a friend last night about how impactful social media has been on my personal development. She was a bit outraged. My friend HATES Facebook for many legitimate and well-articulated reasons.

Yet I can say unequivocally that sharing and connecting on social media has made my life way richer, more connected, more nourishing, playful and fun

Feels to me like another lesson in how the way we bring ourselves to something has a massive influence on how we experience it.

I talk about this a lot in regards to food.
If you want food to feel good in your body, digest with ease and give you energy
it is important that you bring yourself to that food with that which you desire from it.

The journey will always inform the destination.
