Why I Do Medium, Not Social Media.

I’m a hypocrite. We are all hypocrites at some point.

I am on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Insta, but I have to be dragged kicking and screaming to post. I just got reminded why. Our kids’ school just rang us (checking in during lockdown) gushing about how the kids sound so happy, are always out having fun in the woods, and love home-schooling.

We didn’t post about any of these activities on social media, but we could have. And everyone would have thought we were perfect.

The truth? We have to get out of the house to prevent meltdowns, home-schooling is tough but we persevere, and our kids can turn it on for teachers and strangers.

Social media is a destructive highlights reel.

Medium, I can write honestly, make a point, and give proper detail and context.

I want to learn. I try to grow. I’d love to help.
