Intro by Skip Cohen
Yesterday on Facebook, my good buddy, Sandy Puc, posted the two paragraphs below with the attached image. I read it this morning and can't get it out of my head...but it's not just Facebook, it's our blogs, social media, even conversations with friends. Sandy said it all, so anything I'd add would just be redundant!
I was looking over my Facebook archives and realized that in sequence my life looks really fun. Don't get me wrong, I am very happy and life is great today, but I noticed a few things missing in my posts. There were those horrible divorce years that I felt so lost. Oh, and all the laundry...you never see any of that here. Bills to pay, kids to feed, days that I felt I would not make it and I would curl up and cry.
I am glad that today I am healthy, happy and ready to take on the world, but I just wonder how many of my friends are feeling like I did a few years ago and yet they keep posting their "happy" lives because we have all been trained to "look fabulous".. Sometimes it feels good to say HEY FACEBOOK...I'm human too!!!
