Hide and Seek

Remember when you were a child and you and your friends would run around playing hide and seek. Counting to 10 and saying, "Ready or Not, Here I Come!" And the search would begin....high and low...in closets, under tables, behind the curtains....those were the days that taught us all about playing it as a "grown up". Which brings me to my point...social media.

Here I am using social media to express myself and yet it can be seen as two fold. In one way, I am opening my mind to the world and on the other hand, I am exposing myself. How much information is too much? How do you chose who can view you? Do you hide purposely? I know for me, I have had create and deactivate many accounts...because of the drama it causes. Who would've thought a person's thoughts could be so misconstrued as to cause drama? So, I made a decision almost a year ago...I would not privatize my social media tools...facebook, twitter, blogger...I would keep it open because I was not afraid of my thoughts. I am allowed to write what I want and say what I want and those that don't like it...just shouldn't visit my pages. Am I wrong?

Don't get me wrong, you won't find pictures that would be hurtful, manipulative, vindictive or just for plain ole effect because my thoughts are my own, pictures are moments in time that cannot be truly seen. Because what might seem like a happy moment caught on film, could have been followed by a fight...So, I stick to my thoughts and write them down...

Do you play hide and seek? Are you super duper secured? Why? If your thoughts were only for you to read, why have a blog, or facebook, or twitter or any social media connection? I used to be guarded and one of those but then I realized many more people can benefit from some of my thoughts. I don't know, what do you think? This is just my two cents...but they count!
