I’m 35 and love this piece!

I’ve visiting my family and they did this semi-intervention with me about how I have no sense of privacy in my writing. (There’s actually a TON I don’t write about because I’m trying to respect others' privacy, but anyway….)

That night, my brother Snapchatted my 4yo dancing, AGAIN, without checking in with me.

“I thought you were all about privacy,” I said.

And he responded, “There’s no privacy concerns with good stuff. Share as much as you want of the good stuff. Just don’t tell anybody the bad.”
