I'm sorry my running makes you feel fat & my happy baby makes you hate me

Why do certain people/ bloggers get to tell the rest of the cyber world what we should and shouldn't be posting?

You don't like that my kid sleeps better than yours? Get over it. 

You don't like seeing my updates after I went on an 8 mile run and you sat on the couch? Get over it

If I want to post my daily run on Facebook then I'm going to post my freaking run and you can either shut the hell up or unfriend me. 

The thing about insecure people is that they assume that everyone else is posting things and writing updates so they can brag and point out how much better they are than everyone else. When in reality THOSE POSTS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU. The pictures, blogs and updates that other people post are not meant to bring you down. So why do you let them? 

You're annoyed, insecure, bugged or hurt? That's 100% YOUR choice and I'm not going to stop updating and posting about things going on in my life because it makes you feel less of yourself. That's not my intention so it's all on you. 

You know what posts annoy me? essential oil, Insignex, It works! (No it doesn't) and people who think that the "breast is best". But do you see me posting about how they should all shut the hell up? No. I block them, ignore their requests and trash talk about them to my husband like a normal person. 

Why can't everyone just be happy for each other? You ran a half marathon this weekend? How cool! You sat on the couch and ate pizza? How equally cool! Your baby sleeps through the night and is an angel at church? Yay! Your kid turns into babyzilla pretty much everyday? Here is your virtual hug girlfriend. 

I'm so sick of seeing these posts from bloggers who tell other parents to stop sharing things about their "perfect children". Sorry not sorry but if my kid is perfect you better believe I'll be posting about it.

Everyone is OK with the idea of posting how horrible your child is. Those posts get "oh you'll get through it" and "good luck" comments while the happy posts get passive aggressive "wow how lucky" and death glares through the computer screen. 

Let's stop with the double standard that makes it okay for people to share the bad and hard things in their life but heaven forbid someone post something about being healthy, happy and/or motivated. It must be a sad world you live in when you can't just be happy for someone else's joy instead of bitch about it because it's not your same experience. 

So here is my message for everyone who feels like they can't contribute to the online world because their kids are actually pretty easy (for now) and the things they enjoy and believe in include exercising and eating clean: POST AWAY. If people get bugged and annoyed then I guess that is just one less follower you have to worry about
