What are you complaining about?

I saw something rather bizarre on Facebook the other day. It was an entire thread about a few people who have been liking lots of photos on Flickr lately. The thread started with a question, but what followed was what fascinated and confused me. People claiming that they blocked the person for liking so many of their photos. Uhm, correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t we put our photos on Flickr to be seen and hopefully liked enough to make clicking that little star worth someone’s time? There were several other comments that made me chuckle and tilt my head to the side like a confused dog.

One person said that this person had too much time on their hands. Well, the same could be said about those complaining about so many Flickr favs, couldn’t it? I mean, isn’t that just a complete waste of time? Someone else said that the people faving so much were trying to gather favs themselves. That might be true, but it certainly doesn’t mean you must do so.

From there, someone mentioned people that copy/paste the same compliments over and over again. This is one statement that I can understand both sides of, because I am one of those people. Why? Despite the wordiness of my blog, I don’t always have eloquent words or time to explain all the amazing components that I find in a photo on Flickr. I have several words with cute emojis that I use, because different photos warrant a different type of compliment. However, I assure you that I do not copy/paste these compliments all willy nilly. I only paste them if I believe it, just like I don’t invite photos to my Bringing SLexy Back group if I don’t find the photo to be quite sexy.

I think the bigger question should be, “Why are you all complaining about something so many others are genuinely grateful for?” I personally am grateful that anyone takes the time to like or view anything of mine on any platform. Perhaps today, we could all just take a moment and give thanks for some of our blessings.

Born To Die

“Lost but now I am found
I can see but once I was blind
I was so confused as a little child
Tried to take what I could get
Scared that I couldn’t find
All the answers, honey
Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough, I don’t know why
Keep making me laugh
Let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime
Come take a walk on the wild side
Come kiss me hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
So, choose your last words, this is the last time
‘Cause you and I, we were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die”

Born to Die
