Are our outings meant for our own enjoyment or for showing others?In the past when people used to go out with their family for an outing, vacation, movie, lunch/dinner, shopping etc it was purely for their own satisfaction and for family enjoyment and relaxation.
But nowadays things have changed a lot. More than personal satisfaction and enjoyment few people consider it more important to do a show business and let others know what they are doing. This is where social media platforms like Facebook, WhatsApp come to their help. Wherever such people go they get immense pleasure in taking photos and sharing with others instantly, giving minute by minute status updates like “Enjoying delicious Pizza at Dominos”, “Just checked into xyz resort” etc. They get satisfaction when people reply with comments like Great!, Enjoy yourself! etc. In case if they are unable to do these things when they feel that there is no significance of their going out as others do not know about it.
Is it really that important to give continuous updates to others on where we are going and what we are doing? Shouldn’t we do things more for our satisfaction and enjoyment rather than for others?
