In today’s society, almost everyone you meet spends their free time on some form of social media platform.
The main purpose of most social media websites is to allow users to share thoughts, life events and milestones with friends, family and sometimes acquaintances.
However, more often than not, people become enamored with the idea of becoming “social media famous”.
The more likes someone gets on a post, the more “popular” they are considered.
Sometimes people become so obsessed with social media popularity that they forget how important quality is over quantity.
If you find out you’re having a baby and you make a post announcing your pregnancy on Facebook, what’s more important – the amount of likes and comments you get on that post or the fact that friends and family are taking the time out of their day to congratulate you on this new milestone in your life?
We can get so caught up in the logistics of social media that we forget to focus on the true purpose of it – to connect with the world around us.
At the end of your life, the amount of followers you have on Instagram is not going to matter.
What will matter is the lives that you have positively impacted during your time on this earth.
That is what will be valuable to you.
That will be your true legacy.
