Yesterday I totally understood that you really should stay away from social media on special days, like Mother’s Day. Because I guess people think and feel that they need to post their mother’s photos or photos of themselves with their children, like they kind of have to. And I’m sorry I do not understand this. 

Do not get me wrong. People can share whatever they want on social media, I don’t mind, I don’t even care. It’s their life and their choice. I share my life here and nobody has the right to criticize me. I share photos on Instagram on my birthday or on our wedding anniversary. If someone is not happy about it, that someone can go and fuck his/herself. 

But on days like Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, this sharing thing becomes a madness. Well, we are in a very fragile zone here: Motherhood. The most sacred hood in the entire universe. I believe people should be more sensitive in those days. There are people who lost their parents, there are people who are dying to be parents, there are people who were once parents… You don’t need to rub it in your friends‘ face, how you perfectly spent your day with your mother/father or with your amazing and extraordinary children. They are your fucking friends!

I love my mom. I love her so much and I adore and respect her endlessly. There are no enough words to thank her for the things she’s done for me and my sister. But in my opinion, motherhood is the most overrated status in this world. And people become more and more insensitive and become more and more obsessed about themselves, more and more self absorbed. And motherhood is one of the biggest tools for it.

  1. Hey! This button to leave a reply is sooo hard to find! ;) This hype about motherhood & fatherhood is the same in my country. I think honoring your parents is a good thing but at the end of the day, more people usually just rave about their love for them on social media but when you go offline, they won’t even want to follow whatever their parents are telling them to do. That kind of disconnection of one’s social media image with the actual reality is sad.
