People Share The Craziest Times They've Seen Someone Overshare TMI On Social Media
Sigh...THEY'RE posting again...and as usual you know way more about them than you truly ever wanted to. You're already picturing someone, aren't you? Unfortunately, they're everywhere, and they must be stopped.
What's the worst case of over-sharing you've experienced on social media?
Here were some cringey examples.
Two active duty soldiers who are married to each other, with completely open facebook pages start airing their drama about cheating on each other. Each admitting that they cheated on each other, how they are going f*ck each over in the divorce.
Their CO was on their facebook page, so was the garrison commander.
Both got UCMJ action for adultery.
But wait, it gets better. They were ordered to cease talking about the proceedings on social media.
What do they both do? They go to social media, continue to brag about cheating on each other AND put their commander, garrison commander, and respective JAG lawyers on BLAST.
They are both no longer in the Army, and yes they are divorced. It was truly epic, and they kept b*tching about their punishment, and everything. They basically both started digging a hole and didn't f*cking stop until they got to hell. They then b*tched about how f*cked they are.
My half-sister. Every trashy detail of every trashy moment of her trashy life ends up on FB. Or it did before she blocked me for calling her on her bullshit. The final straw for me and my brother was when she posted "Well, my mom wouldn't send me money, so I'm homeless and freezing to death (it was September in North Carolina), I slept with some dude for money and now I'm pregnant." My step mother refused to send her money for drugs, she was homeless for stealing from her former roommates for drug money. She had also faked several pregnancies for drug money and sympathy. I can't say I'm sorry in the least that she blocked me before I could block her.
Defined By A Partner
Someone I used to work with posts a picture of her and her boyfriend every day on instagram with some lovey dovey caption at the bottom, and a count of how many days they've been together. Every month they celebrate their "anniversary".
When they broke up, she deleted every photo with both of them in it, leaving about only 3 photos left on her account.
She got a new boyfriend about a month later, and now she does the same thing with this new guy, and I swear to god I think she's been reusing some of the old captions she made of the old bf.
Some guy I worked with constantly posted about his and his wife's fights. Every little detail of what was said, and what happened after. I think we he wanted us to sympathize with him but he came off as an *ss in most of the posts. Before I friended him on facebook he seemed pretty chill. But after reading those posts (which on some days came once an hour), I was worried that we'd get news that he murdered her and I started to avoid him at work.
After I moved on to another job I unfriended him. But a few years later, out of morbid curiosity I went to check his profile and they were still married and had two more kids.
The Worst Kind Of PeopleGiphy
I was in the airport on my way home from another continent when I was scrolling through Facebook and read my aunt's post (not a message, but a Facebook status) about how my grandpa (who I was going home to stay with for a couple months) died that morning. Called my mom, who had apparently asked all family members to wait 24h before posting anything on social media so that I could have been told in person. My whole family was livid at this aunt for a while.
3 years later, my uncle (a brother to my mom and this aunt) died unexpectedly in the middle of the night. His adult daughter happened to be traveling to their house that day from her out-of-town home, so her mom asked all family to refrain from posting anything on social media until the daughter arrived so that she could tell her in person (and also prevent her from driving while distraught). The aforementioned aunt decided to ignore this request again, and my poor cousin read about her dad's death in a Facebook post when she stopped for breakfast.
Just An Entire Mess
I will never forget this post.
Old restaurant coworker, followed him because all of his life drama would go down on Facebook. People posting to his wall about how he stole a child's bike and ruined her birthday, his mom calling him out for drug relapses and stealing from her. All on facebook!
When he broke up with another old coworker, he took to facebook. He wrote a wall of text calling her every name in the book, talking about how he was going to miss her daughter, then finished with something close to this: "Good luck finding another guy willing to put up with your fish market smelling lady business."
A Most Unusual Color
A Facebook friend of mine posted that she was worried because her 15 year old sons right hand had begun turning a strange brown/orange color. There were pictures. She'd made a doctors appointment. She then explained it was because he was using his sister's tanning lotion. Only she didn't seem to realize the reason only his right hand was tan and not the rest of his body! So, she let all of Facebook know her son jacked off using tanning lotion.
Non Validation Life
When my son was first diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkins lymphoma I was texting with my mom while we were in the ER. My son asked that she not spread the news. So of course, the next day she sent out a family-wide email detailing everything, plus her own theories and conclusions. I got a call from my daughter who was stationed in Japan and was frantic. This was the first I had heard about the email because she didn't include me (because I was at ground zero, as it were). So I called my mom up and basically tore her a new one. Her reply was that it was just to family, but I told her that she wasn't supposed to tell ANYONE. She even told my 96-year-old grandmother, which could have killed her (but didn't). She later told me that my dad chewed her out too. So now I don't tell her anything unless it's past any crucial time. I can understand her wanting to get the word out for prayers and thoughts, but I don't live on the outside of my skin, looking for validation from social media.
Btw, my son is doing just fine, in remission for 2 1/2 years now.
A Serious Oversight
This was obviously a mistake but a few months ago I saw a guy on Linkedin who was sharing practically his entire employment and education history. He was attaching letters of recommendation and emails praising his work from supervisors. He added a couple of documents for his education and one of them was his school transcript. This transcript had his full name and social security number at the top.
Unfollowing Can Be HealthyGiphy
During his last weeks my grandfather was really unwell. He was a proud man at least with regards to his appearance and didn't like people seeing him so poorly.
The day he died my cousin put a photograph on Facebook of her son hugging him. Titled it 'pop's last hug'.
It's an uncomfortable picture. The boy has an expression that reads "I have been told to smile for the camera so here's a grimace" and my grandfather just isn't there in it at all.
I was pissed. He'd have hated to have that picture tor for everyone to see.
Even taking the picture was tasteless but sure whatever, but uploading it was disgusting. I silenced her recently after more uncomfortable oversharing. It isn't healthful for me to see her nonsense.
Chlamydia And Cousins
My cousin, asking her Facebook followers what she's supposed to tell the health department when she receives calls asking for the contact information of all the partners she's recently had sex with since she was diagnosed with chlamydia. In the comments, she went on to explain that she didn't even know some of the names of these men, let alone their phone numbers. The entire thing was her ranting about how annoying it was, along with asking for advice on what to tell the health department.
My first thought was damn girl, get your life together. My second thought was damn girl, ever heard of Google?!
Countdown To A Meltdown
A friend from the past completely melted down over a couple month period after visiting his family across country and deciding that his mother, who was battling cancer, wasn't being treated right by the rest of the family. He completely went at it with everyone and no topic or accusation was off limits.
And he was clearly in the wrong, completely off his rocker, and his family were just a bunch of regular people. One by one he called people out and publicly tried shaming them by spilling all sorts of past events etc. And one by one these people would eventually tell him off and suggest he get help and then block his ass. And he would just go harder on the next person. It became so f*cking ugly that myself and others just unfriended the guy because we couldn't watch it anymore. I've never seen anything like it before and doubt I will again. Complete sh*tshow.
This Is Why We CommunicateGiphy
This person asked me to hook them up with my friend. I did, and the next day they proceeded to post on social media in detail everything they didn't like about having sex with them.
Like, it caused a lot of drama, some people saying it was their right to post it, others saying it was gross and over sharing. My friend felt totally humiliated and had no idea anything went wrong, because there was no communication. Meanwhile I felt horrible and responsible, and I was just begging them to take it down. Resulted in the person deleting their account.
Ive just, never seen anything like that in my life.
Friend of mine: his mother in law passed away. Grieving father in law goes into depression and stops paying rent, gets evicted, starts getting passed around the kids/grandkids.
My buddy doesn't like it when it's his turn, after 3 days goes on a rant "hey daughter A! Why am I stuck with YOUR father! You can't stand him either? Someone has to come pick him up in 24 hours before I toss him on the street! Daughter B, do you know he walks around the neighborhood and gets lost? I had to find him three times already! Daughter C Come get your free loader!!!!!"
Yeah, it's called dementia -.-
Ah, Racist Relatives
A VERY ANGRY and *also OCCASIONALLY RACIST older relative WHO types LIKE THIS,,,and doesn't NO HOW TO SPEL OR PUNCTUATE2 (and who I couldn't block, because it would offend decent family I do like) posted a very long rant after a 3-month absence about "Facebook jail" and "f*ck the police".
Turns out, she had made very time and place specific violent threats about harming Michelle Obama (who she has also called a man, a monkey, and a transvestite prostitute, to give you a sense of how classy she is) because the former First Lady had the AUDACITY to visit a city of several million in the state that said relative lives in. That she lives 4 hours away from. And never visits. And b*tches regularly about. The Secret Service followed up, and Facebook suspended but did not delete her account.
Included with the rant were several pictures of her topless 75 year-old self wearing a confederate flag skirt, flipping off the camera while literally sh*tting on a picture of the Obama family.
I'm glad she did it, because Facebook then deleted her account.
To Cause A Downfall
To preface, my sister has always been self-obsessed, maladjusted, "woe is me, nobody understands me", moody, straight up batsh*t. Hella dramatic and no amount of attention anyone gives her will ever be enough for her.
She just recently went through a terrible breakup (he cheated on her and is a sociopath POS, but as always, 2 sides to every story and she's not blameless) and made a new Instagram account and posts the most painful, cringey poetry as a way to express her feelings towards men. It's like a middle schooler's diary...she's 30.
One of the worst,
"Don't promise to not hurt me Every guy that has promised they wouldn't hurt me hurt me. So don't promise you won't. And eventually when you do I won't have to call you out for breaking your promise to not hurt me...
This is how girls are ruined"
Always uses the hashtag #poetrybyme. Like, girl, I wouldn't be claiming that poem if I were you. My other sister and I get great laughs out of the terrible writing and my dad can't even talk about how absurd she is on social media. Hence why I rarely ever post on any platform now.
Who are your social media oversharers?
People are required to have a license to drive, fish, and have certain jobs.
So it boggles my mind that people aren't required to have a license to have kids.
Some of the cruelest and most vicious things I've ever heard were words uttered by a parent to a child.
As an adult, I was haunted by a few thigs.
I can't imagine the scaring of an adolescent.
Redditor Tight_Anywhere6794 wanted to hear about the things parents have said in the past that haunts everyone still, so they asked:
"What insult have your parents said, that is stuck in your head as an adult?"
I've been blessed with the mother I had.
So I can't speak from experience.
But I've heard parenting horror stories.
Bad ExpressionsSad Kid GIF by 1tvGiphy
“'You’re so annoying.' Said to me as a young kid while I was expressing enthusiasm over some new interest. Later my father complains I never tell him anything."
"What did I do to deserve a fat kid?"
"My parents also mocked me for being fat, and outright physically abused me as in forcefully grabbed my fat child manboobs or slapped me while calling me fat-related names."
"A lot of people at school did it too, so obviously I have a lot of self-image issues like I never let anyone see me without clothes these days. The worst part is that I legitimately internalized a lot of hate, I could never care for myself enough to actually get fit."
What's My Name?
"My parents divorced when I was young and they hate each other. My mom would call me my dad's name when she was really upset. What makes it worse is that I confided in her that I never wanted to be like my dad. She used that ammunition against me."
"That's awful. You are your own person. You aren't your father."
"'You can't even laugh right.'"
"My mom in a weird moment I thought we were bonding. There's something inherently extra evil when someone tells you your joy is wrong. Told her I'm engaged and hoped she could at least be happy I'm happy and she ghosted everyone to the point the family thought died. She's a mess."
"I'll never understand parents that are so hard on their own children that they can't even be happy for them. So their sole function is to bring misery to their offspring?"
EvilOh My God Wow GIF by The Roku ChannelGiphy
"My little brother was drowning, I tried to save him but also almost drowned, we got rescued by a neighbor. My mom told me that they should've left me in the pond. I haven't spoken to her in many years."
Good Lord. How do people like this exist?
"She told me I was acting just like my father when I would get upset. I would just get kinda pissy and sulk. He would go on rampages and scream and hit and throw things. He pushed her down the stairs once. I would never lay a finger on my current partner. The worst part is I look just like him. I was wondering if my mother always expected me to turn into my dad. I prove her wrong every day."
10 Years Old
"When I was ~10 years old, my mum once said 'If I could go back in time and make sure I never gave birth to you, I would in a heartbeat.'"
"Never forgot it. Talked to her about it a couple of times years later and her responses ranged from 'That never happened' to 'Oh yeah and I suppose I’m just the worst mother ever' and finally 'Yeah but I didn’t mean it, you know that.'"
"Messed me up tho tbh. Another one was '[older sibling] was the only child we actually planned for, the rest of you were accidents.' I don’t think it was intended as an insult, but being told your entire existence was an accident as a child kinda stung."
“'You’re the biggest mistake I ever made.' - my mother when I was 5. I’m 32 now and it’s been the undercurrent for our relationship ever since, constantly wondering if anything I’ve achieved or struggled for is something she’s genuinely proud of or just relieved to say I wasn’t a total failure on her part."
"Not a parent but a grandparent, I was adopted when I was 12 years old (my parents were both drug addicts so I was in and out of foster care most of my life) my adopted mother's father turned to me on Christmas Eve when no one else was around and said 'My daughter should have never adopted you, she should have let you stay on the streets where you belong'… he got nicer as he got older and sicker but I couldn’t find it in myself to forget what he said even almost 10 years later. Went to the funeral for moral support but was indifferent about his passing."
Just MeSad Kids GIF by Cian DucrotGiphy
"I was an only child and lonely. When I asked for a sibling, the response was 'If you want to know why we don't have more kids, go look in the mirror.'"
Some people should never have children.
A tough realization that most of us have to process and accept at some point is the fact that our parents lied to us when we were kids.
But the tougher fact to process may not be the lying itself, but some of the lies that were told along the way.
Redditor Fearless-surfur-ee asked:
"What was the biggest lie you believed?"
"That adults knew what they were doing."
"Maybe not ALL adults, but I definitely thought that adults with responsible jobs have their s**t together. Then I realized they do not have their s**t together at all."
"Which in turn makes me feel somewhat better about being an adult with a responsible job who does not have their s**t together."
"It’s illegal to turn on the dome light while the vehicle is moving."
"Nope. Turns out it’s just annoying as h**l."
A Lottery Trick
"When I was a kid, my cousin convinced me for, like, an hour that her mom had won the lottery. I can still feel the loss of millions of dollars two decades later, and that s**t hurts, bro."
"WHY, JESSICA, WHY?!"
That Truth Hurts
"I’ll fill up my car with gas before work tomorrow morning."
"I will do stuff like this for my fiancé in a heartbeat, but if I need to fill up my own gas tank to avoid doing it tomorrow? That sounds like a problem for future me."
When That Grief Hits Seven Years Later...
"My mom told me when I was five and my favorite dog died that it doesn't matter that dogs die, because in seven years, they respawn."
"So I was like, 'Oh, fine. See you then, bud, I will be older, and we will play again.'"
"My hamster died while I was in school. Went back home, and I instantly saw he was a little bit different."
"My mum tricked me into thinking it was the same hamster and he hadn't changed a bit."
"Mom told me the truth a few years later. I was so p**sed off."
"My mom has done the same thing with my nephew’s parakeet. One day, Pickles #1 flew into the pantry, somehow got stuck in a case of Diet Coke, and got crushed by a can avalanche."
"He was immediately replaced by Pickles #2. My nephew asked why Pickles was so mean to him now. Pickles #2 is an a**hole."
"I’m suspicious that we are on Pickles #3 now but I don’t want to know for sure."
"My mother's cousin did that with her little boy's rabbit."
"The new rabbit was a psychopath. Having his previously loving rabbit now hate him and repeatedly attack him was almost certainly more traumatizing than learning about death."
"I always wondered if stories like that were part of the inspiration for 'Pet Sematary.'"
Just in Case
"The microwave will explode if I put my face too close to it while it’s heating food."
A SUPER Secret Affair
"That my parents were married."
"The truth is, my father was, just not to my mother."
A Creative Story
"That my dad moved out and rented a room in the house of a female friend for tax reasons."
Such Good Friends
"Outside of dumb lies your parents tell you as kids, my friend who worked at a gas station with a big food station that has some ground beef items told me they use kangaroo meat for their ground beef because it was cheaper than cow."
"I am gullible with my friends."
The Lie That Keeps Going
"When I was 15, over my summer break, one day my mom called and said she was gonna pick me up and we were gonna go to my stepdad's for the weekend."
"I didn’t understand why I had to go when she would leave me at home by myself for the weekend all the time. I was old enough that I knew the rules and she could trust me."
"She told me there was a mixup at the electrical company and they seem to think we didn’t pay the bill and so the power was gonna be shut off, so we were gonna go to my stepdad's until that got sorted."
"That was a lie."
"A weekend turned into two weeks, which turned into a month, and then the entire summer. We hadn’t been home in over two months. I kept asking when we could go home and she’d always have an excuse."
"We reached September, she’s driving me from one city to my hometown to register for the following year of school, which started up in a week, and this was the closest I had been to home in two months! After I registered, we bypassed my house and started heading towards the highway to go back to my stepdad’s."
"It was at that moment I snapped and started freaking out! I knew something was wrong."
"She pulled the car over and started crying. Apparently, my brother had been helping her pay the bills and when he moved out, she could no longer afford the place on her own. So my stepdad was trying to help but he had his own house and kids he had to look after, and he couldn’t keep it up. We had been evicted."
"We stayed with my stepdad for the summer while my mom tried to work something out with the landlord, but they couldn’t come to an arrangement. Because she never told me, and in order to buy herself time to work something out, she had to be comfortable with potentially leaving EVERYTHING behind…"
"Well, she couldn’t work it out with the landlord and we lost EVERYTHING. The only thing I got out of that house was the shoes on my feet and a few outfits and pajamas enough for a weekend stay."
"My mother wanted to keep the lie going for as long as she could to buy herself time that she had to leave behind everything to keep it going. She never went back for anything, so eventually I can only assume it was all thrown away."
"So not only did I lose material belongings like my computer, my video games, and all my clothes, but I lost basic things like my own bedroom… and privacy as a teenager! I slept on my stepdad’s couch for almost two years until his daughters moved out and I took over their old room."
"But I also lost sentimental things like childhood pictures/videos, the memory box I started when I was seven, and the porcelain dolls my dad had given me over the years, he bought me two per year (birthday and Christmas,) and now that my dad is dead, those are things I wish I still had."
An Elaborate Tale
"When I was very young, we had a pet hamster. He got out of his cage, so my dad put the cage in the basement, thinking he might get hungry and get back in."
"One morning I woke up and there was the hamster in his cage in the usual place. I asked my mom how they found him and she told me she opened the door to the cellar and there he was dragging his cage back upstairs."
"It wasn't until I was a teenager and remembered the exchange that it occurred to me she obviously made that up."
"That acne would only be a problem when I was a teenager."
"I started breaking out in the third grade and haven't had clear skin since. I'll be 27 pretty soon. This one hits home."
Part of the Family
"When I was like 16, I found out that one of my sisters wasn’t actually my sister. She was actually just best friends with my oldest sister growing up, and she lived with my family from when she was 12 or 13 through 18 (she and my oldest sister are 15 years older than me)."
"Unfortunately, her parents wouldn’t sign her over for adoption and didn’t contribute anything to my mom raising her for six years."
"The weirdest part is that my family is predominantly fair-skinned, blonde with blue eyes, but the girl I thought was my sister was traditional Hispanic with darker skin, dark hair, and brown eyes. My mom was always very tan and had darker skin and hair throughout my childhood, so I thought that my other two sisters and myself were the odd ones out."
The Deepest Betrayal of All
"On April Fool's while I was getting ready for school on a cold winter day, my mom told me, 'School is canceled! It's a snow day!'"
"I ran around for a good two minutes celebrating before she told me, 'April Fools!'"
"I've never felt so betrayed in my life."
"You better be a mastermind supervillain by now."
"Thank you for sharing your Joker origin story, lol (laughing out loud)."
These lies have a wide range from the hilarious to the absolutely diabolical, maybe even with a few villain origin stories thrown in.
A common thread throughout most of these was someone telling a lie in order to avoid a tougher conversation, which only led the younger person to have a lot more to process later.
With theaters finally open to those wanting the ultimate entertainment experience that streaming movies at home can't provide, the pandemic that kept many venues closed now feels like a distant memory.
There's nothing like seeing a film up on the big screen the way Hollywood studios intended, and many would argue that experience is worth shelling out the cash for.
That being said, there is no assurance audiences will remain in their seats until the credits roll at the end.
Because not all movies are created equal. Some are just embarrassingly bad and not worth sticking around for.
Curious to hear from dissatisfied moviegoers, Redditor girlcalledmariaaria asked:
"If you have ever walked out of a cinema because the film was so bad, what one was it?"
These Redditors had no idea what they were in for.
"I've not, but when I saw In Bruges, an elderly couple walked out after 20 minutes and I heard the man muttering that this wasn't a film about Belgium at all. It really tickled me."
"Holmes & Watson, my family really enjoyed step Brothers and Talladega nights. So I shouted the 5 of us to the movies on Christmas day because for some reason the cinemas were open and it was showing and we don't really do big celebrations. 15 minutes into the movie we all looked at each other like.. wtf is this. I tried to leave.. I went to ask for a refund because their policy said you can get a refund 30 minutes into the movie... But we were 5 minutes late because of the 20 minute trailers.. I'm still seething about spending $100 to basically die of boredom for an hour and a half. I was sitting there embarrassed about suggesting the family outing. My family stuck it out because I'd paid for it and couldn't get a refund even though I told them I didnt care and begged to leave."
"I've got a story of a film my friends and I refused to leave, actually."
"In 2006 I was turning 14 and was obsessed with Pirates of the Caribbean. My mom threw a pirates-themed birthday party where my friends and I were meant to go to see Dead Man's Chest, which was still in theaters in August when the party was. We dressed up for it and everything."
"Well for some reason the showing we were going to see was packed despite the movie having been out over a month, so there weren't 12 tickets available. My mother (and my friend's mom who came along) made a split second decision to see the next PG-13 rated movie available."
"Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby."
"So a gaggle of 14 year old girls dressed as pirates walked into this theatre to a bunch of weird looks, but we sat down with our popcorn as normal. The next hour-and-a-halfish saw the moms be horrified at the crass nature of the film and keep asking if we wanted to leave. The answer was a HELL NO from the whole group. That movie proceeded to be the basis of our inside jokes for the next 4 years. To this day it's one of our collective favorite grade school memories, even if my mother continues to be embarrassed by it."
Whether it was physical or emotional, these films didn't sit well with Redditors.
Saving Our Necks
"Oh, I remember vividly. It was Battlefield Earth."
"The shot angles kept being tilted this way and that for no reason and I started tilting my head so that things would be level. Then my friend joined in. Then we simultaneously were like 'are we going to cramp our necks for THIS?' And walked out."
Punishment For Sneaking In
"I walked out of 28 days later. Not because it was bad. I was 9 years old and snuck in and it was freaking me the f'k out.. watched it years later and enjoyed it."
Oh, The Horror
"I saw Prometheus twice in theaters. At the second show, a group of 10-year-olds snuck in. The first R-rated scene, which features an alien worm/snake that crawls inside someone's shattered arm, caused these kids to flee the theater in an absolute panic. I imagine they will never forget that day."
Sometimes, it's the theater's fault.
"I went to see Guardians of the Galaxy, and they played Rise of the Guardians."
"It took about five minutes to realize it was the wrong movie the first time. They tried to fix it, played Rise again, tried to fix it, played Rise a third time, and the whole theater walked out for refunds."
"Apparently it was a issue at a lot of theaters."
Not A Prank
"I guess this technically counts but when I went to see deadpool 2, the cinema accidentally put the wrong film on and played some Amy Schumer film instead. Everyone in the screen thought it was some meta deadpool joke and out of nowhere he’d appear and shoot Amy Schumer so we were all waiting on that. After about 10 minutes of the film, the staff came into the screen and explained that they had put the wrong film on and couldn’t undo it because of their tight schedule etc but we would all get a refund and were welcome to stay and watch the rest of the Amy Schumer film. Everyone left."
Other times, the movie itself doesn't screen well for the audience.
Far From Purr-fect
"I’ve never walked out of a movie and I saw Cats opening weekend."
"I walked out on it, but then decided I wanted to be back inside. They let me back in, but then I walked out again."
I'm all for supporting the arts.
But if a movie I already paid a non-refundable admission for was absolutely terrible, I'd have no problem forfeiting the cash to spare my sanity and walking out of the theater.
The one time I did just that was when I went to see The Island of Doctor Moreau starring Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer.
I was a kid and I was thrilled to go see a movie all by myself.
Unfortunately, the sci-fi horror film wasn't enough to captivate my short attention span.
I walked out and subsequently called my mom to pick me up from the mall where the movie theater was.
Those were the days...
If there was one good thing to come out of the pandemic, it was that it made us all the more appreciative of all that is good in our lives.
No one ever appreciated the importance of friends or family more, having to be kept apart from each other for months, or the little things which bring us joy, which we made sure to keep doing even as pandemic restrictions were lifted.
Of course, being alone with our thoughts for such a long time also resulted in our reflecting on things in our lives, or in the world in general, which we were less than happy about.
Not to mention the all-important realization that life is short and precious, and we don't have time to waste our thoughts on some things.
