i “like” to be liked.
Sometimes I sit around and think of witty things to put on my Facebook page – simply because seeing someone “like” something I wrote kind of makes my day.
What? You think that’s sad? Hmmm.
You don’t feel special when they comment on the fact that you ate a Carmelized Peach Salad or bought some jeans or purchased a new adapter for your iPad2? (Ali. Again).
You don’t feel like a million bucks when someone compliments your new profile picture or gives your clever status update the thumbs up? Or what about when it’s your birthday and your wall is so full of happy birthday wishes that you literally “feel the love?”
Alright then, maybe it’s just me. Maybe my carefully cultivated Facebook page and I are in need of a social-media intervention, the same way my husband needs a Best Buy-intervention. Maybe. Or maybe not?
All I can say is getting my kicks from the 10-15 minutes I spend on Facebook every day is cheaper and more efficient than paying a shrink to tell me I’m a fabulous human being.
So please feel free to like/comment/retweet/share away. And I’ll do the same for you.
