Respecting Privacy

Ive been wanting to post this blog for a while now. A part of me figured it would eventually die down but it doesn't seem to be going that way, so I'm hoping this will help.

Privacy is so important to me. I make a decision of what I put on social media/ blog and I don't make the decision lightly. I have a blocked Instagram account for a reason. I ask that people respect that. This is a difficult thing to talk about because I don't want to offend people; but I also don't want to be harassed. Its sad really, that I've had to change my phone number and hit X on friend requests on Instagram multiple times. You'd think people would catch on after the second or third deny.

I hope some people reading this take it into consideration when it comes to other people as well.

Could you imagine if we all lived in a world with no gossip? A lot of talk-shows you watch on tv would undoubtably no longer be aired. I'm sure a lot of us would have a lot more friends. I for one am drawn to people who speak highly of others. Instead of people who enjoy tearing people down. Not saying I'm innocent because I have done a fair share of gossiping, but its definitely not something I'm proud of.

Ephesians 4:29 says "Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear."
