You are a whole person

Marketing & Writing

As I’ve been posting more on social media, I’m reminded of my own fragility a bit.

We always want to share the best parts. But in my experience, that’s not how you connect with people. People just want somebody else to be real for once, ya know?

That’s part of my hesitation. Number one, I don’t want to fall into that trap. So much of the reason I held back from posting on social media has been because I just HATE when people endlessly self-promote. It drives me batty. I don’t want other people to think that’s what I’m doing.

But on the other hand, I know that I do have both valuable and vulnerable experiences to share—and sometimes it’s hard to post those kind of things, too.

The biggest thing that helps me is to remember that I am a whole person. There is not Business Steve, Ministry Steve, Husband Steve, Dad Steve, Christian Steve, etc.

There’s just Steve. For better or worse! Take him or leave him!

That’s a freeing feeling. It’s a lot easier just to talk about who I am than to try to figure out some “persona” and be that all the time. That’s not very interesting. And it’s borderline dishonest.

So, if this stuff helps you from time to time—please join the conversation or share it with others who might find it valuable. That’d really make my day 🙂
