When someone comes to complain about what I put on my platform off that platform, I wait for 3 days and then take them off it. This is what I mean, you view my whatsapp status update, you don’t respond to it right on whatsapp, you come offline to rant about it, I wait for 3 days, if I still feel the same way (getting you off), I do just that.

I never forget, I will remember to do it. I am so proud to be that type of petty, I am sorry too. At least, people won’t go and have hypertension over my matter.

This time around, I didn’t bother blocking or waiting for 3 days, I just went to “only share with…” It means that only 44 people can see my whatsapp status. If you want me to teach you how to show or hide whatsapp status from selected contacts, please say in the comments section.

I also don’t like it when I don’t know if you viewed my status or not (because your receipt is off).

Just this morning I realized that I would prefer my whatsapp status to not be as public as my other social media accounts. I didn’t really get that it was okay to want only a few people to see some of your other sides. I don’t think it spells you as hypocrite, I think it just helps you draw the line and define how much of information a set of people can have of you.

I can be very extra and expressive. I think I just want to share that weird, extra, unpredictable, crazy, silly and unworthy side of me with only 44 people. On some days. I can be stupid. I unfortunately live in a world that asks me to be as prim and proper as I can be. It’s so limiting and unfair and judgmental.

Let me give you the full gist.

I had made a very silly video of me yesterday. I was tying a wrapper, the Nigerian kinda local wrapper. So, there I was giving a short recap of the day and my thoughts. I got to work to have my colleagues make snide comments. I wish I wasn’t too sensitive to mockery. I wish, I wish. I wish I was just the girl who never bothers about what people say.

I know people who don’t defend their human sides, that’s not just me and it is distracting. I want to be able to not give a damn but since I don’t know how to, I am going to allow myself be myself.

So, I will add people as long as my social comfort can allow, one at a time. But for one, work colleagues are out. Don’t get me wrong, I love these guys, at least, most of them but ehm, I don’t know if I want them as intimate as that. I think I just want us talking about work stuff and just a few personal things.

This is one of those rants I don’t know how to end. Let me go and look for the image to use for this post. Tiring stuffs!

    the fact that they mocked you about something you posted is really sad and cruel.. it is good the way you blocked them.

      I tell you. I got to realize that one of them has his receipts off. You know when you have no idea who saw your status only to come to work the next day and be mocked.

  2. Which is why my only colleagues who can see my status are the ones I actually consider friends. That we are colleagues doesn’t mean we are friends. I keep my personal sh*t away from office peeps.

    It’s a learning curve for you. We all learnt this the hard way. Just draw the line and keep your (non-friends) colleagues out of your personal space.

    Sorry that they made you feel bad… this too shall pass. Flick it off your shoulder. Brush your hair, square your back, chin up, and keep slaying.

    1. Esther Adeniyi says:

      Oh my, thank you so much Meg. Thank you. Lesson learned too.

  3. Ha ha ha … let me just keep laughing sha. I am proud enough to let all my contacts see my status just to know how much time they care to spend on me(/what I’m involved in??). Sorry ehn.

    1. Esther Adeniyi says:

      Your head o. I am waiting for when they will come and form God on top of your head. Don’t even tell me when it happens because I am so going to be cold about it. Insert evil laughter here.

      1. Hian! I keep only good people or those who know enough not to try to stress me up because truthfully they know – I don’t care. I’d farabale give you reply or completely shun; however my head what to work at the point. So girl, I’m covered??

        1. Esther Adeniyi says:

          I want to be like this too. I wish to be like this.

  4. Sorry my sakes, l feel your pain but you need to develop thick skin and block off any blockable person.

    1. Esther Adeniyi says:

      Thank you sake. Yeah right.

  5. Hey dear, you are totally right. I want to hide my status from some people too because some individuals don’t just mind their business. I wonder in this world where they come from.So annoying.

    1. Esther Adeniyi says:

      I wonder why they won’t just leave me alone to be stupid. ???

  6. Oluwafunmbi Adeoti says:

    Wow!

    1. Make it the selected 45, add me please to those who’d view your status

    2. Sometimes, we can’t blame ourselves for being so petty about things like this, it is the way to go.

    1. Esther Adeniyi says:
