When I started blogging, I didn’t want people who knew me to know about it. I know what you’re thinking – how can you be posting stuff all over the internet and not want people to see it???
My problem was, that even though I love blogging, I care too much about what people think. Having them judge me based on things I say or do, gives me major anxiety. It’s different for people who don’t know me personally, because they only judging the content, not the writer, you know?
Yesterday, I created a new Facebook page to go along with my website and today, linked it with my blog’s Instagram account, not thinking that it would invite my Facebook friends. A few minutes later, so many notifications were popping up with new followers and I couldn’t understand how they all found my Instagram, at exactly the same time. Who knew linking social media accounts can do that? Not this girl, obviously.
Have you ever walked in a mall and fell flat on your face, then you stand up and every eye is on you? That’s the feeling I was having while all this was happening.
I called up my cousin and explained my little situation to her, she didn’t think it was a big deal at all, but then again, she’s not much of a drama queen.
This was one ridiculously small thing that I was nervous about having people know, really stupid now that I think about it actually, but the point is, we need to STOP caring so much about what other people think, it is such a waste of energy and emotion. Do whatever it is that makes YOU happy, as long as its legal 😉
