Why We All Need To Share

We share a lot on social media. Our private life is open to everyone there. Is this a good thing? Some people say yes, some people say no. I say both.

Social media

This is the most well-known form of sharing with the world. It is not going about stuff, food, products, but more about your life. There will be other things shared like products, but most of the post is about sharing moments from your life.

I share a lot on social media, I share a lot on Medium and all my other writing platforms. All about what I have been through, what bothers me, what happened to me positively, what my perspectives are about certain subjects and some things that happened negatively to me. But also my posts.

There are also things you don’t want to share online. It’s too intimate. Even with your beloved ones. I love to share things with you! I don’t mind if it is online. Or too intimate.

Sharing food

There is a thing such as sharing your food. When you have a partner, most of the time they share each other's food. While — when you have the right one — you don’t mind, but when you don’t have the right one you do mind to share your food with. You want to keep it for yourself. People think you’re too selfish.

Like when you’re having a movie night with friends, you eat a bowl of popcorn, a bowl of chips and have a bottle of wine. All these things you share with your friends who come over for the movie night. You have the best times. These people you love and want to share the food with. At least, that’s my experience.

It’s like when you eat an apple: you can have one whole apple to eat. But you also can cut it in slices to share with your family, friends or whoever is in the room with you.
