Sometimes I get frustrated when people I know don’t support me. It’s like they can see how hard I’m working and still choose to support a perfect stranger instead.

By support, I don’t mean give me money.

I mean, reposting one of my blog posts or articles.

A simple like on one of my photography posts.

A subscribe to my YouTube channel.

You know, the little things.

I don’t know why it’s hard for people to do that.

Maybe I’m thinking too much into it?

I know I shouldn’t care because it’s futile, but I’m human and my feelings get hurt sometimes.

I have a handful of people who do support me and that should be enough… and it is!

Yet sometimes, I can’t help but wonder why they aren’t.

I’m an overthinker..

Not by choice (obviously)…

I didn’t choose the “over thinker” life, it chose me.

  1. I always hated that too, especially on facebook. I had friends that would never comment on my status updates or like them etc. and yet they were always active on Facebook. By friends I mean people I actually hung out with in person. It drove me crazy.

    1. You took the words right out of my head! There are people I’ve known for years, hung out with almost everyday, yet on social media acted as if I wasn’t important. These are the type of people who don’t deserve our positive energy. Thank you for commenting!

      1. I left Facebook a couple years ago and people didn’t seem to notice or care. Some of them assume I’m still on FB even though I’ve been inactive for 2+ years. I gave some Facebook “friends” my number but never heard from them after that. Social media gives us this false security that our online friendships are stronger than they actually are 🙇‍♀️

        Agreed, much of what I see on social media is either negative or some highlight reel of someone’s perfectly hyped-up life. Tbh we’re better off without em.’ Keep doing your thing and you will find your tribe of like-minded people! Sending you some #positive-vibes 🙌
