Do you need to be liked?
Have you ever sat and just wondered about random or even important questions? About your life or the world, society or the way we live? I do this type of things all the time. I might zone out when Im doing something else and just let my mind wonder, or these thoughts come at night (typical so I can´t sleep).
People today have an extreme urge to express them selfs. We have the need to be heard, to be seen, to be liked. Blogs and so called online diaries are popping up everywhere and people are writing their hearts out, but why do we do it? Is it in the hopes that someone will understand us, or feel for us? Do we do it so that others will like us, or even just for attention? Are we just selfish and this our way to cry out to the world, look at me, like me, share me, want me. Or do we do this just for our selfs? To get off our minds what we might even dare to say face to face to someone? I am solid in why I decided to start writing and letting the word read my words, but why do you do it?
When I say this I am not just talking to all the bloggers out there, I also think about those who share, write and post on different social media sites too, just easy to take blogging as an example when that is where I´m expressing myself.
So is it ok for us to live our lives like this? Is it positive or negative? Is is just a superficial way to get attention or is it the new way of self therapy? Im my opinion I think it´s both and I think it´s whatever YOU want it to be, and as long as you stay true to yourself, go for it! Just remember to don´t let life pass you by why you are busy taking your next selfie in attempt to get an like record on Instagram.
