So, in today’s edition of Wednesday’s Wisdom, Wit, Wonderings and Whatnot, I will talk about -to be fluffy or not to be fluffy, now that is the real question!
I realized that many times I post things on social media and get a lot of use but perhaps not responses. And that is fine, I don’t post things to just get accolades, but sometimes I just want to put my thoughts out there. But a like or three would not be the worst thing to happen to me. I digress.
I love people who are kind and positive and say fluffy things. Cute little sayings, thoughts or innuendos, what is not to love? But there are serious things to say. Life is not full of tortilla chips and queso (how I wish it was!). As a classic over thinker and semi-intellect, I don’t want to be a party be a party pooper, but I do have more to share than just funny/haha anecdotes.
People don’t want to hear complaining or constantly being reminded of the terrible state of everything. But isn’t it okay for those who have concerns or important issues to mull over to post those things as well? I am the type of person that can post a cute animal video one day or a shot of me watching Gilmore Girls with my cat and totally switch it up the next day with a 9/11 please remember post.
I don’t think that there’s anything wrong with that but apparently if you were on social media and you follow a fandom, or you are a part of a writing community were are intrested in hooking up your car, that is all you’re expected to mention. If you say something cute about the opposite sex, or mention what alcoholic beverage you are enjoying, those topics are pretty generic. But I sometimes don’t want to say or do what is comfortable for everyone. It is just not in my genetic makeup.
I play the devil’s advocate, looking and relating to sides of the coin that may not match up to what I believe. I am just interested in different perspectives and do not live my life in black and white- well if you vote this way then you are this type of person or if you do this then you go into this box. And if you do that, well then there is no way that you could support/believe/be cool with this.
I am the anomaly. The funny and intelligent, conservative/liberal, southern belle turned yankee. A person with a myriad of thoughts that happen to be about many subjects. I totally get the niche blogger. I actually envy the hell out of them, if you are one of them, then I envy you in particular. Maybe that is why I am a lifestyler. I can’t focus or just don’t want to.
But, even for those who write only about cooking or belong to the Hartford Cocky Cookers (obvs not a real thing-lol), would it be terrible if they did a post about government gun grabbing or gay rights or women’s pay inequality? Or even about how cats rule and dogs drool? (I LOVE ALL ANIMALS BTW)
I guess it kind of bugs me, just a little (haha) that people are so unresponsive if one doesn’t stick to either what is comfortable or the status quo. Do you ever feel that way? Like if you do not do what is expected of you that people will freeze you our or just freeze period?
And this isn’t only in relation to social media, this is just expectations from people in general. This is my wondering and what not for today. Can you relate? Or are you one of the low key folks who keeps it light and fluffy like a Luke’s pancake? And if you are, that is cool. I just don’t quite understand how to be that way and you may wonder how in the world someone could be all over the place with their thoughts and diatribes like me. That is totally fine though. I come in peace. Thank goodness we are all different or I would have absolutely nothing to pontificate about:)
