I like to be Liked, is there a problem?

As ironic as it sounds, the internet hates social media.

People like to say how Likes, Shares, Comments and Views validate us the wrong way.

It feeds our ego.

It gives us a false sense of satisfaction.

We should be going out there to live life, wherever that is.

This is according to all the pretentious self-helpers out there.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with being Liked. I like it!

It shows people give a shit about what I have to say.

Seeing the numbers build up is pretty fun and satisfying too.

It’s only a problem when you stop giving a shit about your person.

That’s when you stop caring about holding a proper conversation and prefer to be glued to your phone.

That’s when you choose to live a lie by lying online all the damn time.

That’s when you use social media to spread hate to others.

That’s when you don’t leave the house.

Apart from that? It’s cool. Like the Likes. Everybody does.
