"My Day" isn't My Life

Thursday, April 20, 2017
People will always be quick to form conclusions about other people. First impressions, judgments based on things they've heard, and simple glances are just some of the ways people swiftly conclude their sentiments about others. Now it would be nice if these conclusions were based on solid facts, but sadly that isn't always the case. Sometimes, people just form conclusions because, well... because it's what seems true.

I've heard quite a few stories about me lately, and apparently these stories rise from what people have seen from my Instagram Stories, as well as My Day. "Gail's been hanging out with certain-someone, oh my god, what could be going on with both of them?" "Gail's too relaxed 'cause she isn't posting her #studying clips on Instagram Stories" "Gail's with this-person in her My Day, what could they have been doing?" blah blah blah.

Honestly, ya'll are good writers and/or detectives if you can make a story out of 10-seconds-or-less clips from my social media accounts. 

But really, don't use my Instagram stories and My Day to write what you think is my life. Those are just glimpses of a 24 hour day. A lot of things happen in between those clips and pictures. I don't document everything, anyway, so don't believe that everything is good because the bad things are intentionally left out.

Besides, those are just snapshots of my day -- you don't know the story behind each of those clips, because you just view what's given to you. You might think that I'm slacking off but really, that might actually be a clip of me relaxing after working my ass off. You might think there's bad blood between me and a friend because I haven't included him/her in My Day in days, when really, it's as simple as he/she just wasn't in My Day. 

This doesn't just apply to me. It applies to everyone you might've made conclusions of. Leave people be with what they post in their My Day or Instagram Stories. Don't try to string together the clips and the images to make a concrete story or representation of their "Whole Day", because you don't have to. Sometimes people just post in their My Day or Instagram Stories because they want to share a good moment with their followers or they might want to show off too. 

If what they're posting isn't directly negatively affecting the world, then really, why bother getting all up in their business?

Think about it.
