How much do you share? On social media or in person. I tend to share my art using social media. My thoughts behind this: I make the art, I should share it. I share my love for my friends and family in person AND on social media. I share about movies and books I like. I share pictures from vacation on social media.
Does anyone care? I get joy when I share my art and my friends and family like it or give me a ❤️. I my excitement peaks when someone I don’t know gives me a like because they happened upon my art because of a hashtag. ‘Yippee!’ some random stranger ❤️’s my painting!,’ I think. Or a youtube influencer gives me a ❤️. Oh, that’s the jackpot. My dad comments on every FB post. I know he has hundreds of friends. I wonder, does he do this to all of their posts?
Then there is the opposite spectrum. Acquaintances watch my stories (yeah, instagram tells you who watched your story) but they never give me a like. What is that about? Why are you following me if you don’t like me? Am I overthinking this?
I would love it if you could SHARE your thoughts.
