There are things that should be kept to yourself, things that only your inner circle should know and not the whole world. Basically, in today’s time we’re asking ourselves to be stalked just by posting status, photos and other personal stuff on social media but I think there’s a limit to it. We all have that freewill in using social media but there is also a thin line between sharing and oversharing. There are things that I think should be kept private and not broadcast it to the world where you just basically reveal all your problems and other information that can be used against you.
Personal issues should be handled privately because how I see it, posting it online could cause to unresolved problems because of other people’s opinion on it. Only those who are involved in the issue should be the ones who handle it and not ask for sympathy or comment from the online world. You may not care what others think about how open you are but think about the other people who are involved in the situation and how you could have slander them with inaccurate information because you chose to post it online rather than discuss it privately. Stuff like these also shows your character and how you respect others because the people you have issues with they were your friends and even family, you have fights and misunderstandings but that shouldn’t stop you from being a kind and respectful person. Always be the bigger man and always be mindful of your actions because you may feel better about venting it out online but you’re not the only one who’s affected. I mostly read about stuff like a cheating husband, yes what the husband did was wrong but also think when you start posting this there are also kids who are involved and will be greatly affected by the situation. How will shaming the husband or the mistress help in solving the issue?
I read hundreds of posts like this everyday and they are letting people in on their dirty laundry or letting others grab a popcorn making their personal issues as a source of entertainment, doesn’t it bother them? Well, I wrote this post because I’m bothered by how busy people are with publicizing their problems rather than solving it privately. How about they took all that time they rendered on writing those long posts in discussing their problem with one another? Or maybe they just really like the publicity? The likes? The comments? Whatever it is I hope they realize the consequences of their actions and also realize that posting it online is not the only way to vent out. It is not the right way and channel to grab someone’s attention, use the traditional way and communicate, talk it out calmly and discuss it privately.
