Self Worth

I may be mistaken but from this title I would think that “self worth” would be determined by the “self”.  However I know that, that is wrong. With this day and age people are determine to measure their self worth by how many likes or retweets they get, or comments, or how many so called friends they have on their social media pages. Granted that these “friends” they do not have to personally know or to have actually met the “friend”.

With this said this drives me absolutely crazy……   I have few friends and this is probably why. But do I really have to see a picture every time you bathe your “adorbs” dog,  a picture of every time you cut your kids hair,  add a new flower to over compensating yard, or get one thing from your awesomely awesome garden, which is awesome by the way. Maybe I am wrong but I just do not need to post about every teeny tiny accomplishment.

Do not even get me started about “selfies” oh my.  If you have not heard that song, google it. It is so true. Beware I think it may have a few bad words though. Oh my goodness do you have that one or two friends that when you go to your face book feed you have to see five different face shots from them from that day, each and every day.  It is like they need to valuated by the number of likes they get for that picture. Which I will not like them. I may be a bit more humble, but when I look at my photo album or any pictures I have taken, I do not see myself. I find that I like what I am seeing outside of the mirror. I am not ugly or so insecure that I do not want to see a picture of myself, but I am not so self- centered that, I am all I want to see. I would rather look at my handsome husband, or amazing children which I do not plaster pictures of them, maybe I am just selfish because I do not share them with the world. I am just a private person, and I personally know I am blessed, I do not need others to tell me I am. I know one person who was/is always posting about how amazing and awesome her life and her husband are, that it sound to me either she is going to take the highest bidder when she sells them, or that maybe just maybe she is trying to convince herself. I would go with the latter.

Now ask your self a question, are you one of these annoying self centered people? One of these people who has to feel liked by how many likes your get on a witty comment, or to feel pretty by how likes you can get on a selfie, or special because someone you do not even know retweets or shares your article or status.

If you are guilty of this, and are not self centered, but actually determine how much you are worth or how liked you are. Please stop, please look at a real friend, in their physical presence and enjoy your life. If you do not have any friends, then make one, say hello to a actual living breathing person, standing right in front of you. And is this kind of the same thing? With me venting to people I have never really met or never will really know. (But in my defense, my blog is named free therapy).

What really gets to me, are the kids who lock and shut themselves away to play on this technology. But I will save that for a later date.

Now leave comments, tell me I am the only one who thinks like this, or tell me I am not.
