Whatever you say,

does it really matter?

I have been struck each time by the discord between people’s Facebook lives and what they say in private. On Facebook, they have been on an amazing vacation to exotic beaches. In person they confess that the vacation was a desperate attempt to save a marriage. On Facebook, they have been to glitterate tech conferences. In person they confess they haven’t been able to sleep for months, and are on anti-anxiety medication from the stress of financial pressures on their company. It is a strange case of schadenfreude for me to hear this, knowing that I had been jealous of their beach time and glamor.n the end, my friend’s strategy seems to be the right one: don’t spend too much time pursuing the lives of people who aren’t in your life. And spend more time learning about the uncut, unedited, off-line lives that your friends are actually living.
