Dumbest Things People do on Social Media 32

It amazes me when people post anything and everything on their social media. Especially on the walls of Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. Some of which are so hilarious while a few are the dumbest. Though they do not fail to give us a laugh, I still wonder why people feel the need to post such vital information. Is it for the sake of attention? Or simply they do not care until they find themselves in a soup of trouble.

Here are a few statuses, I came across that is really an insane post on one’s social media.

1. Announcing every second what you do

I actually wonder when some of my friends post as “sitting in a restaurant”, “sleeping” or better yet is when they post “am locked inside the toilet”. Seriously nothing is hilarious than to read such posts and find others replying as well.

2. Wishing spouse on the social media

Recently I saw a post that said: “Happy anniversary hubby, you are the best thing that ever happened to me”. Oh! I get it! It’s your wedding anniversary and you are reminding the entire world that we are bound to send wishes your way. If not for that why post such a private and romantic moment on the wall of social media? Are we that busy that we wish a beautiful moment of our lives on the internet?

3. Posting your children pictures

Remember there are all forms of predators and pedophiles. Restrict the kind of photos you share on a public platform especially when it is of your children. Keep your little sweethearts away from trouble.

4. Posting your whereabouts and travel plans

Can anything be dumber than giving information to a potential stalker or burglar about your whereabouts? People post such insane information as “ I am in the airport traveling to so and so a place for several days”. Oh, well! Why not at least post it once you are back rather giving information of your travel plans?

5. Adding strangers to friend list

This is one of the dangerous things to do. Having more number of friends in the friend list on social media has become a rat race and people add anyone and everyone. Well! Some of them might even be a stalker. Watch out!

The list never ends and I keep finding such hilarious things. But whatever you share, at least try to be safe without giving too much information about you. Be sensible and think before you write or say something on the internet public platforms.

My Life… My Rules..!! But is Your Life Yours Alone? 695

It’s become quite a common line among most teenagers every time they were questioned or been advised on how they move with things in life. I have come across so many positive lines and articles that says your life is yours alone and no one will step up for it. It is only in your own hands that how you rule it.

These things are true, but what they mean is entirely different from the way it is used among the younger generations today. The way the trend is going, many like to say the famous line as “My life, my rules!” bluntly without thinking the consequences and the situation. Yes, our life is for us to live but we must not forget that our life is linked with many others living around us. People who care for us and who love us.

Every time I hear someone tell me it’s their life and they like to do things as however they want, it makes me feel sad because people just don’t know what life is all about.

Do you still think your life is yours alone? Here are a few reasons that explain why it is not-

1. Your life matters to your family

The moment you were born you become a part of someone’s life. Your parents and people who may love you. As you grow older there are lot many others who walk in your life. Some stay and some move on. But is your life alone? No! Your life is linked to many others who love to see you happy. We need to give something to get what we need.

When people decide to take off their life, they do not realize that they do not actually have the complete rights to do that. Because they fail to understand that it is easy for the person who dies, but it is difficult for the person who lives knowing that the one person who he or she loved most is not there with them anymore. So, I strongly deny that your life is not yours alone.

2. We live in a community

A person who tells you that he or she does not care about what the society thinks is the first person who is usually lying. People say that to convince themselves that they do not care, in truth they actually care. It is a reverse mechanism. When you are faced with rejection or some kind of negative responses to something or by someone, immediately many try to think that they do not care. Every human craves for recognition and to be identified for their potential. Instead of showing ignorance, it’s better to face criticism in a constructive way, After all, it is the same society which is going to give you all the things that you desire to be happy. Your existence is linked with the society you live in.

3. Following rules may help sometime

Agreed that some rules are baseless, but many are useful for us. Some rules are made for our own safety and protection. Most often the younger generation becomes agitated when they are restricted to many things. The first thing what we need to recognize is anything too much is not good. It is not the problem of having rules instead it is the problem of not knowing how to deal with them.

4. It is selfish

When someone says it’s my lifestyle, do not meddle, it sounds too prude and selfish to me. There are some people who try to be an unnecessary part of our lives when we are not interested. Some are even toxic. However, there are different ways to make sure that you keep such people at bay. But the way people go on with a rant of “My life! My rules” seems totally a selfish attitude. Sometimes it is also an escapism of laziness in order to avoid taking responsibilities.

We, humans, are social creatures and we need interactions with other people around us whether we like it or not, to survive. We may choose not to care but there are people who care for us more than we like to acknowledge. Hence, do not ever forget that your life is not yours alone. Sometimes we live by rules made by someone else just to keep the people we love happy even though it may not be something we wanted. Trust me, the result will always keep us happy in the end too. Life is to share and live together and care for one another. Embrace it, Enjoy it and Love it with everyone else in it.
