People often present a very different image of their life on Facebook, than they do in person. I have seen many times how the people in my own social circle would talk to me about what is really going on in their life, while what they present on their social media accounts is something very, very different.
I also encounter this phenomenon when I do psychic readings. A distraught client might say something like, “My ex called me up and told me how miserable he is in his new relationship, but then his girlfriend posted pictures of them having such a good time! So, what am I supposed to believe?”
The hunger for attention is an enemy of self-love ~ Edmond Mbiaka
This is usually when I go in and remote view, to see what is really going on. And in many cases, the people in question like to paint a picture of happiness, joy and good times, to cover up the actual sadness, pain and hurt they’re suffering. Many times it simply boils down to ego, and wanting the world to look at them as happy, and not in a bad place.
I prefer to not share a lot of personal information on social media. In my view putting your entire private life up for public display just screams of neediness, and wanting to be accepted, appreciated, valued, maybe even admired. I wish people would invest the kind of time they put into social media, in their kids, their partners and elderly parents instead.
It made me wonder: why are so many folks interested in knowing what everybody else is doing, and then trying to top it by posting how they’re doing it even better? Well, in meditation spirit came to me and showed me something deeply personal, that I will not share here, but it brought me to tears and it was wonderful. It made me feel good to know that I don’t waste precious time on social media, and that my priorities are in check.
We often do what we feel is right at that moment, but it’s good to check ourselves before clicking ‘like’ or ‘post,’ and first ask ourselves why are we sharing this information? Are we wanting attention? Are we wanting to look like good human beings, because deep inside we maybe feel that we are not? If so, maybe we need to focus on fixing those issues with deep introspection, prayer and meditation, instead of social media attention-seeking.
In the end, it’s not going to matter how people look upon us, but how we view ourselves and how we handle certain situations. Is it of truth and light? We need to think of this with every thought, word, action, and deed.
In a social media world, the danger is being overexposed and when something is overexposed it is no longer interesting…if ever it was ~ Donna Lynn Hope
When I post personal items on Facebook, I often set the privacy to ‘only me.’ Some of the things I post is not for my friends, nor the public to see… but just for me, so I can go back later, when I’m scrapbooking, to find memories to share in my scrapbook. It’s like my digital diary. So, in this regard Facebook has actually been a helpful blessing in my life.
Social media can help us get right with who we are, and uncover our real intentions for why we share certain things. What is the real end goal? That is what we need to ask ourselves. Why am I posting this, why am I sharing this, and why am I exposing what I did today?
I once posted a photo of giving food to a homeless man and regret it to this day. My intention was to create awareness of the plight of the homeless, but instead my foolish post took away from the good deed, in my opinion. It turned into a “look at me, look at me, look what I did!” It made the whole thing seem so selfish – all for self-gain, and to seek attention.
Spirit told me, if you’re going to do a good deed, don’t exploit or advertise it on Facebook. You’ll feel better in your heart and in your soul. Mentally and spiritually you will feel a higher frequency wash over you, instead of lowering your frequency by exposing everything that you do throughout the day… no matter how good your intentions may be. And the real blessing is… you’ll have more time to share your time and attention with those that matter most to you.
