I think it’s important not to sell yourself, or even expose yourself, vulnerably. I understand that our current society is driven by the idea to generate an income from our talents, and that’s obviously a choice. It’s a choice I choose. It’s not only a way to make money, but a way to carve a career from something you love. But don’t confuse selling yourself with selling YOURSELF. Your body. Your soul. It baffles me how people can expose their body to strangers through Instagram and Twitter, solely in order to gain popularity and likes through social media. And it’s not about being proud of your body, I absolutely condone that. It’s about the attention you so desperately crave. I think it’s important to keep the personal parts of yourself to, well, yourself. I’m fortunate to have friends and family who share this opinion, and I’m also fortunate to not tolerate said people. This is the most random post I’ve ever posted, but I think it’s important for people to read, and understand that there is more out there than your ‘social network’, there’s a real network. And it’s called life. You wouldn’t sit on a train in your underwear, so why are you exposing yourself to 6 billion people? You’re not an object. You’re not for sale. You’re a human being. Act like one.
