So you braggin' on the low ?????

Recently my mind has been filled with comparisons and differences. Where does one thing stop and another thing start. The other day I was this question posed and I kind of sgree that I've internally asked the same thing before.

"When does sharing your positive news become bragging."

This is another case of extremes in my opinion. It's not "I'm going to be a father!" or "I just got a new job!" type of statements but just random, repetitive sharing of excess info simply cause your in a good mood.

As the person who asked the question originally said. "Even too much positivity can become negative."

Ever feel like that???

I had a whole comment with examples of bragging and not bragging from my fb friends. After reading through it, I re-realized how much I hate them.
