‘If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?’ This is a philosophical question that has been thought about for years.
I have come to realise recently that the modern day version of this is,
‘If you don’t post or blog about it, did it really happen?’
Have you noticed this?
I mean, you can look at it simply, by just scrolling down your Facebook page and thinking, ‘I really don’t need to know what you had for your tea Rachel!’ (Apologies to all Rachel’s). But also, have you not realised that no one has any secrets anymore? No one has any news to tell you when you see them?
I have found this particularly noticeable, as I have not announced my pregnancy on social media. I have since bumped in people in my hometown who are genuinely offended that they did not know I was pregnant… eh!? Excuse me, this is my body, and my baby! Surely, this just shows that we do not take the time to interact with friends these days, as we rely on them getting up dates via social media on your lives, and vise versa.
I mean, really, what do you talk to your friends about anymore? There’s no point even asking them what they had for tea last night…
