When you make your life public are opinions welcomed?

I have been thinking about this for a while now and I am wondering this. When you put your life on social media for the world to see, are you welcoming the opinions and ideas of others about your life. Do we have a right to get upset when a person feels some kind of way about what we say or post? I have seen many individuals get upset because they post a picture or share issues in their life and someone makes a negative comment about it. Aren’t those things expected in this judgemental world we live in? I personally don’t feel that we should get mad about anything someone says about something we decide to share with the world. Am I wrong for feeling that way? Opinions are like butt holes, everybody has one. My posts and opinions are mine and if I chose to post them I am opening up the door for others to share their opinions as well. I may not agree with them but I have given them a platform for them to discuss as they may. Don’t get me wrong, rude and disrespectful comments are a no go but when comments are expressed in a respectful manner, I don’t see a problem with it. If we don’t want others to express their feelings about what we share, we should stay private right? We should stop posting about our lives. We should stop sharing our moments with the world right? I get so tired of arguments getting started because people are not willing to listen to the opinions of others. If you don’t like it, block them, delete your post, and have several seats!! Some people are just stupid. They are going to hate everything you do and ever move you make. Let them be angry alone. Don’t let them steal your joy. Life is way to short to get mad ove foolishness! Okay I will get off my soap box. I just feel some kinda way about this and thought I would share.

Smooches!!

Crochet Braids-Style Revisited

image

Hey guys. I hope all is well. I decided to try something new. Well its not really new but its new to my natural hair. I decided to do crochet braids as my newest protective style. I had my hair done in this style back in college but it was on my relaxed hair. Most recently I felt like I was in a rut with my hair. I have been trying to think of something different to do other than the braids I have been rocking. I searched on youtube and found a lot of people doing crochet braids. They seemed simple enough so I went for it.

The supplies I used were:

A crochet needle or latch hook tool

2 bags of Freetress Bohemian Braid Bulk hair

Gel

Needle and Thread (to closed the braids)

So I started off with freshly washed and blown out hair. I braid my hair to the scalp. I think I had about 8 braids total. I used youtube to perfect the crochet technique. Its basically using the latch hook tool to crochet the synthetic hair into the braids to create a nice protective style. The crochet braids are a great way to keep you hair tucked away for awhile. Since your hair is in braids there is no need for manipulation. I plan on leaving this style in for about a month and then I am going to try it again. We shall see how this goes.

 

Smooches!!
