If you're a frequent visitor of my blog,
you may have noticed a lack of posts lately
If I were to be completely honest, I would tell you that I've gone through blogging "phases"-- from addicted to unmotivated to hating it...lately the last part.
You see...there is this ugly thing called judgment and its all around us, more so in the social media world. Any which way you say something can somehow be interpreted to look like something else...a picture can tell 100 different stories depending on who is seeing it.
If you talk about the happy things in your life...you're a fake and phony
if you talk about the bad...you're a complainer and drama queen
if you're a stay at home mom...you must be lazy
if you sent your kid to daycare...you must not give a crap about your kid if you're ok with strangers raising it
If you post a picture of your kids accomplishments... you're shoving it in someones face
if you don't...your kid must be behind on his/her milestones
not to mention if you post a picture of your kid in the carseat for he/she may not be strapped in PERFECTLY, be ready for someone to pin point your parenting screw up.
Seems like these days you have to use by the ways and don't judge me phrases anytime you post something thats on your heart because no matter how you say things people out there will to bite into you no matter what. How sad is that? that we have to explain ourselves to the world...cant a photo just be a photo? cant we just be happy for someones good fortunes and sympathetic for their misfortunes?
Do you know that I've gotten grief over cloth diapering? How ridiculous is that, you don't like it...don't do it. Whats it to you what my kid poops into? All the time spent worrying about what others around you are doing...if it doesn't affect you personally who cares?
I refuse to feel like I have to filter what I post not knowing who is out there looking at my life with a magnifying glass, because at the end of the day the only person I need to please is me
