Too many things too much to know

So many things so little time. Some things are not meant for the public eye. On social media, you can choose what you want to tell about yourself. The same with celebrities. You do have a choice. There are those celebrities that don’t talk about their private lives in public. They don’t have to tell anything if they don’t want to. Just because they’re in the public eyes, people don’t need to know everything about them. If you want to make a big number of yourself to get respect, then that’s your choice. But don’t complain about paparazzi and other media. If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the public eye. I wouldn’t care less about celebrities personal lives. Who they’re dating and so on. That’s not my life. It won’t change anything. I’m not gonna lose sleep over something that is no concern of mine. I do have a life of my own. That’s an advice for gossip hungry people.

I’m glad I’m not famous. I would be a really bad one. I don’t even like people on the street looking at me. I prefer being cloaked. I want to keep private things private. That’s the reason I never write about personal things. I only blog about my thoughts about different subjects. I don’t even post photos of myself. Except for the one on the profiles. Besides, I’m not very photogenic but that’s not the reason. I want some anonymously. Some things are no concern of others. It doesn’t mean I have something to hide. Some people are too curious. They want to know who you’re dating. When you take a shower. Maybe not that though. I could have changed my blog to something else to get more followers and readers. But I didn’t. I’ve kept the same policy I’ve always had and it won’t change.

Privacy is my right and so is yours

whatever-is-private-will-remain-privateEveryone has the right to privacy, even people in the public eye. It’s your choice what you want to tell people. You don’t need to tell anything about yourself if you don’t want to. People think just because someone is famous, they have the right to know everything about them. You don’t need to know everything. If someone elses life is that important, then your own life must be miserable. They should really get help because following someone elses life too closely is not healthy. Those who spread rumours around must just be jealous of the person. People have the urge to speculate about which celebrity is dating who. That’s no one elses business but their own. There are more important things than someone’s dating history.

I try to keep my life private. That’s because I’ve had people in my life that I lost my trust in. I’m careful what I tell about myself to new people. You could say I have trusting issues. I’m trustworthy myself. If someone tells me a secret I never tell anyone but I can’t trust another to keep my secret. Even if the person says I can trust them, I still don’t believe them. I really need to know the person very well before I can confide in them.
Even if I say it myself, I could date someone in the public eye because I would never tell anyone. Who would I tell anyway, I don’t have any close friends. If I had I would still keep it to myself no matter how happy I would be. I’ll never meet one anyway and if I did, you would never see me in parties or premieres. Those things freak me out. I don’t really like the word, celebrity. It sounds and looks like they are people from another planet. In a way they are but in the end they’re only human who just happens to be famous.

On social media like Facebook I have my privacy restricted so only my followers can read it. Some things you just don’t want everyone to see. But on Twitter it’s all public because if it was restricted, there wouldn’t be a point for me to use it. I wouldn’t get enough of reaction if only my followers would see what I tweet about. Sometimes I get likes and retweets from who doesn’t follow me but there wouldn’t be much if I had it in private. On Twitter I don’t post so-called sensitive issues. Except this blog post. I still won’t post too private things to this blog and even less on social media. Privacy is my right and so is everybody elses. It only depends how you use it online. Tell it all or keep it to yourself. It’s your life and you can do what you like with it.
