New Chapter

Hey Y’all Hey Kijan ou ye?? How are you doing?

Rant loading….3…2…1…

Everybody has a chapter they don’t read out loud!

So, let’s talk…

Why do people always feel like they must talk about the bad before they talk about the good?
Why do we feel like people won’t resonate with us if we don’t first tell them about our trials and tribulations?

Lately, I’ve been seeing people talk about the downfalls that occurred in their life as a prelude to sharing their happiness and that’s the reason behind why they are celebrating. As well as pointing out that what you see on social media isn’t everything. But shouldn’t people have common sense to know that everyone doesn’t share everything on social media! Your social media is exactly that yours!

So, my question to you is…why can’t we just celebrate our wins without bringing up our loses?
Have we become a society where we can’t be happy for someone unless we know their past and their pain? Must we disclose our pain to the world in order for people to join in on the celebration? We all go through trials and tribulations and if I choose to only share the happy times, is that wrong?

Are we not smart enough to know that everyone has a chapter they don’t read out loud and what we CHOOSE to share on social media is our own choice?

Let’s stop expecting people to share with the world their trials and tribulations. And if they CHOOSE to share, let’s not ask them for more. We all have our own challenges and path. Let’s respect the boundaries that people have and not expect someone to share their entire life with the world.

Let’s normalize celebrating!
Celebrating yourself!
Celebrating your family!
Celebrating your friends!
Celebrating all your wins!

Let’s normalize celebrating without having to prove that we are worthy to celebrate!

Until the next post…

Signing Out,

Live with purpose, Love with passion, Laugh with pleasure!

    THANK YOU for writing this! I get so uncomfortable when I see that people feel that they have to share their life story in order to feel like they have the right to share something positive. I know that there’s been a lot of criticism of social media because viewing everyone’s “highlight reel” makes people feel insecure, but it’s so important to respect how each individual wants to present themselves publicly. It’s good to be happy, it’s good to want to celebrate your achievements, and it’s good to share things that you’re proud of! It doesn’t make you braggy, it makes you human.
