Favourite Part?

This is simply a prompt I can’t feel comfortable with, maybe it’s because I don’t belong to what I might call the “Facebook Generation”. I did have a Facebook account but I deleted it for two reasons. Firstly was the fact that any updates reset my preferences to public, the least safe option. Secondly it encouraged constant posts and competition for “likes” which means people spend time thinking about themselves and comparing themselves to others. It showed aspects of some people’s behaviour that I didn’t like, I prefer to take people as I find them. Addiction to Social Media is now acknowledged and it can have a devastating effect on people’s feelings of self worth.

I’m not of a generation which constantly thought about themselves, we grew up being told when we’d stepped out of line. We weren’t made to feel we were the centre of the universe and I’m sure would have been derided for telling anyone about the “favourite part of ourselves”. If someone told us we were good at a sport, were clever or had a great sense of humour that opinion would have been appreciated but if someone said it about themselves they were considered “up themselves”.

I’ll leave my favourite part up to friends to judge.

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”
