And once a lie is out there, it festers and takes on a life of its own. The liar, unless exposed, continues to walk and talk
Everyone wants to feel important and secure in his or her social group. Many people simply repeat what they have learned in the past, unaware that those ways of being and acting haven't helped. The good news is that these new behaviors often rapidly produce positive results.
As of yet, I still haven't pinpointed the "it" of being popular. (Although, I have found the perfect hair product.) And I know we can't go back to those pre-digital days. But I pray our younger generation will realize not everything needs to be shared.

To be the most-hated woman of the moment, all you have to do is be kind of a brat. Former Nickelodeon star and "Love Me Harder" singer Ariana Grande came in second in THR's biannual Q Score ranking, which ranks famous people by their popularity -- or in Grande's case, their unpopularity.
Donald Trump is the bull in a china shop, and I mean that in the nicest way. His competitors, delicate breakables, are lined up on the shelf, concerned that any bold move could topple them to the ground.
Some of us run small-scale tests and develop theories as to what can garner the most interaction. Others convince themselves to rise above it and attempt to ignore the addictive validation people bestow onto the content they share.

No, I don't live in New York; I'm not competing for press; I'm not trying to be the most liked or endorsed. Sure, I still have moments of frustration, but I'm focused on me. And I can honestly say I've never felt more comfortable in my skin.
