Setting Boundaries on Social Media
The thing that is so great about social media is that we all get to have a platform. We all have an opinion, and on your platform, you have the opportunity to share that opinion, or not.
And we are connected to so many others, friends and social media "friends" and we are exposed to their opinions and we respond to it. we get to decide if we "like" it or not. literally.
Some people are ready to strike. You can feel them thru the ethernet-
it's more about them than it is about you, sometimes people just want to be heard and we all have different ways we want to be heard.
Some people want to cause disruption, some people want to fight, some people want to be liked no matter what, and some people want to educate and so on.
I like it
But I also want you to know, that you can also choose what you accept and what you don't.
Some people like and welcome fighting, disagreements, and banter on their pages, but you don't have to.
I prefer to handle that type of energy in person.
Since this here is a personal page, and not a public one, I tend to keep control of who is posting on my page, because I want it to be a safe space.
One, for myself so I can share, and two, for others, who want to share on my page.
I have posted that I don't have very many men on my page, and that is just because many of them have been disrespectful, rude or obnoxious, and when they've been that way, I've just removed their ability to post.
But it's not always men, sometimes it's women as well.
Not everyone is going to agree with you.
And if you have a message to share and you are writing public posts, you are going to ruffle some feathers along your journey and those people are going to strike out at you.
It's just part of.
I just want to share that it's okay, to remove people like that from your space here.
I do it all the time.
You are aloud to feel free of that energy if you want to, your space does not have to be a platform for people to spill negative energy all over.
We can allllll feel each other thru our phones and social media etc, you can trust your feelings and the vibes you are getting in these situations. You are aloud to create a safe space for yourself.
