The Stigma of Social Media


One thing that is a fact about social media is that the majority of the people only broadcast the good things in their life. It’s easy to see everyone on social media and only think that they are all having a better or more exciting life than you do. I’m guilty of this all the time. I want to challenge you to possibly post something about what you are struggling with and not necessarily what might look the best and what you think others will like. That you don’t have to put on a show of what your life should be. I had a Marketing Internship this one summer where I was writing social media posts for an organization. My supervisor told me that people on social media want to read from a real person. A person sees countless social media posts a day, but it’s the ones that people tell from their heart that stands out among the rest of the posts.

I have noticed that since I started blogging a few years ago that people appreciate when you start to get vulnerable. Many of us are struggling to get through the day, and it helps to see that we are not the only one struggling with things. For all you know posting a vulnerable side of you might encourage someone else that is going through something similar.

Also I encourage you to possibly ask for prayer, because we can all have something that can be prayed over. There can never be too much prayer. God can help you get through anything. I have seen God work countless times in my life with situations that at the time I saw nothing good coming from it. Know that you don’t have to go through anything alone. Even if you feel like there is no one in your corner know that God is always there fighting for you. If you need prayer or someone to talk to then you can always come to me. I’ll always be in your corner and cheering you on!
