IT’S ALL ABOUT ME
I have no clue where I’m going with this post. I think I just need to vent. I titled this post ITS ALL ABOUT ME due to my social media observations.
Granted, maybe majority of the people I add or follow are predominantly in the fitness field. I can open any one of my social media apps and everyone is working out.
If they’re not working out then they’re meal prepping, snapping a pic of what they ate, a random selfie with them sweating from a workout. I’m just looking at all of this stuff like when will it end. Guess what, I’m guilty of it too lol. I don’t knock anyone who is working on becoming a better them. Whatever you have to do (legal/moral/ethical) to make you feel good, go for it. Who am I to tell you that you can’t be great?
I’ve been doing a lot of self reflecting these past few weeks by looking at others and what they do. I’m sitting there thinking like should I do more of this or more of that? Is this too much or too less?
At times I feel I don’t post enough workout videos. It seems that’s what people want to see. My take on it, is I’d personally like to spend time on working out vs recording my every last move. Who knows, after this post I may record another workout video. Like I said, I’m just venting right now. I always take workout videos like you have to do something amazing and over the top. Simple lifts don’t cut it for me anymore.
When I see a lot of average lifts, multiplied by different social media apps I can get burned out watching the same regular lifts all the time. You know what, those are the ones that get the most engagement. The ones with these phenomenal lifts hardly get any traction. The spirit of jealousy is at an all time high in this community of fitness.
People want you to engage with them on social media but don’t want to reciprocate it. I feel we are in this LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME generation. Every one has a fan base it seems. The word followers and friends are the two most abused words in social media. Those two words can be so far from the truth.
Everyone wants you to look at them like they’re doing something major and they’re really not. I feel that people are just happy just doing something versus doing nothing. If that’s your place of happiness then OK fine but I don’t fully grasp the need to record yourself if it’s not instructional for the viewers. I feel we are getting stuck in this time announcing to the world, Hey everybody I’m doing something! Hey everybody I’m doing something!” To me it has to be something more than just that.
I bet you’re reading that and thinking to yourself hey maybe these people are trying to motivate others. Maybe so but then I think there’s a lot of self-centered agendas behind all of this. Who am I to judge what people do? People can very well have the purest of hearts with their intent. They could just be having fun. At the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about. Having fun while gaining optimal health. As I stated earlier, this was just a rant. Just something to get off my mind from an observation. This was not meant to disrespect or harm anyone. Just my views on the world.
