Be careful of sharing your life on social media

It will affect your behavior

When you have a habit of posting on Instagram, for example, it will affect how you start living your life. You’ll subconsciously begin living your life in a more Instagrammable way, meaning that how an activity will look on Instagram plays a part in deciding what you do.

You don’t have to be a professional content creator for this to happen. It’s equally true for people who use social media just for fun—it just happens on a more subconscious level.

Letting your ability to post about it affect what you do—which always happens— makes intrinsic enjoyment less of a deciding factor in living your life. We already live lives with compromises, such as time and money, that prohibit us from living to the fullest. The last thing we need is an additional, unnecessary compromise influencing what we do.
