Why I Won’t Stop Sharing Happy Pictures

Sarah Reinhart
This is me with my gang. We are mostly happy in this picture. Even though it was a hot day as we walked along the waterfront, and we ran out of snacks, and I maybe snapped at my husband for drinking the last of the water we’d brought with us waaaaay before we made it back to the car – we are mostly happy here. It’s a happy time. I post a few pictures like this one every day on Instagram and Facebook. I am one of those. One of those moms with a penchant for digital documentation. I am a constant chronicler. My family’s curator of all our good, and happy times.

But every so often I’ll see an article come through my newsfeed that dismisses my happy picture-taking-posting-to-social media-hobby. Or worse, one that condemns the happy sharing. It’s bad for my kids. It’s annoying. It’s a way to get blocked, hidden, un-friended, un-followed. It’s wrong in general.

[Insert aaaalll the big-eyed emojis and shoulder-shrugging GIFs here]

Because after feeling a twinge of WHOOPS, I wonder: Am I portraying us as TOO HAPPY?

And then, Nah. This is who we are.

I remind myself of the reasons why I love to share – and will continue to share – my family’s happy pictures on the internet.

1. Social media can be used for good. Wait, what? Social media isn’t just a place for narcissists? Self-promotion? Advertising? Venting? Political hubbub? Negativity?


No, no it’s not. At the root of social media is connection. I know, I know–digital connection. But digital connection IS REAL. It has real energy. It can propel real movement. Let’s use it to raise each other up, support each other. Sharing the happiness is sharing love.

 2. Pictures tell stories and stories are powerful. No further expounding necessary because a picture is worth a thousand…


3. Living smaller isn’t the answer. You don’t have to shrink to make others feel bigger or better about themselves. Can I quote Marianne Williamson here? I think I will. “…As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” Feel good. Feel good. Feel good. Go ahead and post an after baby’s bath cute photo or that sweet family bathroom selfie because those moments made you feel so good.


4. $h*t happens and sometimes life more than sucks. We all know this. We ALL know this. Let me provide a quick example. The week before last my son brought home head lice from a friend who graciously passed it on through a baseball helmet. My other children got lice.  I had a house and family to de-bug. That meant our washing machine was running constantly. Consequently the sump pump broke. Our basement laundry room flooded. Among other things, our internet modem fell onto the wet floor. Let’s look at this break down: itchy, infested children. Flooded basement. No washing machine. Broken modem. No internet. Nooooooo. Just no.

I could go on and on with these kinds of examples; I have five children! For every happy picture I share I assume people know there could be 10, 20, 50 images of our unhappy times too. (And sometimes I post about those times as well.) I am honest about the good and the otherwise.

But overwhelmingly there is good. Lice or no lice, there is good. There is happiness. I look for it every day. And the more I look for it, the more I find it.


It was Maya Angelou who said “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” And that’s really the bottom line. When I share happy images on social media my intention is that other people will see them and feel happy, too.

Share on sister! I love to see the happy. I love to see the scribbled on couch, or the bag of flour that Johnny and Susie just through all over the living room. Life happens in the happy and not so happy moments we share with our families. Why not show everyone that we’re not alone in our experiences?

Yes!!!! This was great. Thank you!! If someone else’s happy picture makes you angry maybe you should log off facebook and start doing something that makes you happier inside. DUH there are crappy times in between, some comical some not but why am I not keeping it real if I chose to mostly post the happy ones. I don’t get it-do you want a picture of me fighting with my husband because he still can’t find the effing scissors?!? No!! Great article!!

Yes! Great post, completely agree! If you don’t like the way I use social media then unfriend me, of course I’m only going to post happy memories on my Facebook, why would I air my problems online?! My profile is for ME not for anyone else, it’s a bonus my family and friends share these moments but it’s like a diary for me, I love to go back through my pictures and statuses because it makes me happy and be thankful for what I have!

So you don’t think you’re a narcissist that is self promoting? Good for you that you’re happy- no one wants you not to be. Anyone who is your “friend” probably wants to see your happy pics. But NO one (ok maybe your mom but no one else) wants to see them every day. And they do make people who do not have perfect lives feel bad. That isn’t your fault but understand. If one of your beautiful Children was critically ill and your family’s days were spent at the hospital, would you post pics of that? Would you be jealous of the happy perfect people? Just think before you slam your critics. You are self promoting and putting it in other peoples faces- you don’t have to be ashamed just be realistic :)

Happy to admit I’m exactly like this. I have had my own sister tell me to stop posting so many pix. I told her oh well defriend me.

This whole thing about sharing only happy pictures is fake ticks me off. I am not going to take pictures of my kids on bad days because, lemme see, I DON’T WANT PICTURES TAKEN OF ME ON MY BAD DAYS. I mean, heaven forbid we treat our kids as we’d like to be treated. Beyond that, I don’t believe that airing my dirty laundry for the world is healthy, appropriate, or appreciated. You know what I call people who air their dirty laundry on social media? Attention w****e’s, and I block them.

Totally. I have a million happy photos up of my baby and family. I love sharing the good times. I just imagine that the detractors of this happy sharing are really just saying that pretending everything is perfect all the time detracts from people who are having a hard time opening up and seeking help. So I have also been very open and forthcoming about my battle with postpartum mood disorder. I’m not a Debbie Downer about it, but I feel like being honest about struggles is what normalizes and de-stigmatizes the not so perfect side of parenting.

Please don’t EVER allow yourself to be shamed or guilted into not sharing your happy times. That is what LIFE IS ABOUT. How is it that people don’t get that? Has evil and bitterness really infected society that badly? Those of us who live far from loved ones rely on social media as a free and convenient forum by which to keep people involved. That’s just the reality of the age we live in, and I’m glad we have it.

I’m all for sharing, but I do believe in having some honesty about the challenges, too. Painting a perfect happy family picture on Facebook when things are kind of rough isolates others who are struggling. We should unite in the happiness and the struggle, rebuilding the village through social media.

I’m sure that a lot of my friends get tired of my continuous posting of pictures of my children and perhaps I have been unfriended or unfollowed for it. But I know that my parents, in laws and grandparents enjoy them and that is mostly why I do it. And as more and more of my friends get married and have children, and I see pictures of their children on social media, I know they understand. How could you not want to share those amazing moments with all your friends? Those times made you so happy, how could you not want to share that? And to my friends without children, be patient with me.

Unfriend me. I promise not to cry.

We live in sc and not sure if we ever will make that trip again (hopefully we will). We all had the time of our lives and really enjoyed our family trip. I made sure to take a lot of pics. Not for me. They are for the kids. So they can relive the great times they had with mom & dad growing up. I really dont care what anyone else says. In the end the only ppl that matter, dont mind, and the ones that mind, dont matter : )

David 1 year ago

I don’t think it’s “happy” pictures that cause critical responses. I think people (often erroneously) assume that there’s an underlying message to certain projections of happiness – “you have to be like this to be happy.” The picture shows happiness, but the subtext that others read is “We are happy because we fit the mold of an uber-white, bourgeois family with all the trappings.” And the negative reactions are often just poor attempts to engage in a conversation about variety in the underlying factors that create happiness.

This is true of so many kinds of posts. Take, for example, the “humble-brag:” “Hiking through the Himalayas with nothing but a backpack and my 35mm camera made me realize how small and insignificant I am.” That is a truly narcissistic kind of post, and I think such people do a disservice to the true gravity of their own experiences by using them to stroke their egos. I feel that it’s worthwhile to try to encourage that poster to share his/her experience in a more reflexive and meaningful way, but most people who feel the same impulse will just dress him/her down for the humble-brag and bring a bunch of negativity into the conversation.

It may be the way of things, but I think that if you want to avoid negative feedback on any posts, the simplest answer is to post in original ways that clearly put substance ahead of form.

“Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
Everything that’s wonderful is what I feel when we’re together,
Brighter than a lucky penny,
When you’re near the rain cloud disappears, dear,
And I feel so fine just to know that you are mine.”

Keep up bringing a little sunshine to the world. Some people stick their foot out so it can be stepped on. Those who complain are in need of professional help. And a hug.

Ha! I know completely what you mean. I have a friend whom I adore completely but he only posts pics of asses. Like 10 pics a day of just nothing but asses. So he had to go in a “special” group for just himself. Still love him though. But what I think I’m trying to convey isn’t so much that you should unfriend anyone who posts things that don’t interest you. Because let’s face it not all the people we care about like the same stuff as us. But what I’m saying is if a person posts pictures of their lives.. Their kids.. Their marriage… Their day to day… And you have no interest in them or what their posting to the point that you block them… Then maybe it’s time to reexamine if they are really even a friend or why you even have them on your list.

I live my life, enjoy my family; and still find time to post pictures. People could say, where do you find the time to respond to a Facebook post. The answer is, we make time!

Nicole Van Hoose 1 year ago

The great things about Facebook is that you can remove people from your feed. If you think someone is over sharing or you don’t like what they are sharing, you don’t have to unfriend them completely. There are a number of people that I have removed from my feed and they don’t even know it. It isn’t usually because of over sharing, but because I don’t like what they post. I don’t care to see calendar girls or videos of you racing your motorcycle at 120 MPH or gym selfies. I like that person and want to keep in touch, but I don’t need to be THAT in touch. LOL
I also like that Facebook lets you group people so you can control how much of your stuff that they see. I have a family group, close friends, work people, kids, etc.

THANK YOU! Those kind of comments drive me bonkers. I promise that I’m not trying to convince the world that we’re perfect, however I prefer to share good news that makes people smile.

My Special Kind of Crazy 1 year ago

That picture of the sofa looks oddly familiar. Oh yeah! MY sofa. And that picture of your kids lovin’ on the new baby…also looks oddly familiar. Oh yeah! My daughter with her younger sister.
You say digital connections are REAL and I agree. I see your pictures and I see my family. I see other pictures of families that are completely different from mine, yet they are oddly familiar.
Families go through many of the same experiences. I don’t think posting pictures of the “happy times” at all indicates a family doesn’t have those “other” times.
Keep posting! I’m going to check out your blog!

The only thing I find is that when I’m really having a good experience and just living in these moments of my life, I don’t have time to take or post fotos. When you’re living it, there’s no time for the daily posting. I don’t get where people get the time?? this is why some of us wonder about the intentions of frequent posters. You wouldn’t post if you did not want a reaction.

Arnebya 1 year ago

None of us can control how someone else takes our sharing. None of us is responsible for only sharing one type of picture, whether it’s my laundry — MY CLEAN LAUNDRY — on the floor, where I pick from it daily, or smiling children. Keep on keepin’ on, mama, because I will tell you this: your pictures do nothing if not make me smile. I PURPOSELY, Sarah, purposely some days, go to your instagram just to smile.

I love this! As a Mom to 7 kiddos, I know how much bad there is with the good. But, like you, I share our happy moments more than the bad moments. Although I share those too! I adore the colored on couch picture because it says so much, but the other pictures say even more! Great post!

From Louisville too. Traveling there in a few days with our 4 kids from 3 pregnancies, oldest only 6. One had severe special needs the first couple of years. Lots of sadness….

When there was a fleeting moment of happiness, I picked up the camera. In a typical blog post I may post 5 to 10 pictures of happy moments. (Less than a second of total time, right?)

It has created an image of our family for some that all is good despite the words I write and real challenges we faced. As things have developed with our challenged lo, it is becoming more difficult to see the everyday challenges – because she is doing so well. It is easy to say the behavior is normal toddler behavior.

It isn’t all normal, and these reactions have tempered my FB activity for sure. I still take the pictures but have found myself pausing on publishing. But I push forward with posting albeit more guarded.

Thank you for reminding me why.

I LOVE this!!! Sometimes I too feel guilty putting up so many happy, proud pictures. But what I should be looking at is this–who has made me feel this way?? You are absolutely right–life isn’t perfect for anyone (and if they say it is, they’re lying!) but what I post is true to life. We ARE incredibly happy. We ARE a family that likes to have fun. We ARE a family that is crazy about each other. And if I have to feel guilty about that, then maybe it’s time to do some “housecleaning” or get off of Facebook all together. Dimming someone’s light to make yours shine brighter is no way to live.

How self-centered can you be to think that anyone gives a crap about your poor cluttered newsfeed (learn to use the “unfollow” feature) or if you think that the only reason anyone could possibly want to share their happy moments is because they want “likes”? Good grief. What a thing to complain about.

BFD 1 year ago

Sorry for the double posting. I thought my first one disappeared… Oops :-)

BFD 1 year ago

I post many happy pictures, but when people feel the need to share ALL the time it’s incredibly insecure because it seems that you need a lot of attention (“likes”). I LOVE to see other people’s pictures and always “like” them, but someone who posts constantly is only cluttering up my feed and dilutes the message that you are truly happy. Truly happy people don’t need daily reassurances. If that makes me a “jealous hater”, then so be it. But someone who calls other people names is only trying to make my day sucktastic rather than vice versa. (shrug)

Sarah Protzman Howlett 1 year ago

Imagine that!

bfd 1 year ago

I mostly post happy pictures on Facebook also (except for the occasional nasty day), but the only time that others are annoying is when people overpost. When people post every fucking day how “happy” their life is, I tend to believe they are either incredibly insecure and need constant attention and reassurance (i.e. “likes”) or they are fake. If that makes me a “jealous hater”, then so be it. But if you are calling other people names, then you seem to be the one to want to make other people have a sucktastic day. (shrug)

Andrea Spence Accinelli 1 year ago

If someone doesn’t want to see your pics, they are free to unfriend you. Post whatever you like.

Nicole Hoffman Schaffer 1 year ago

The problem is that people mainly post the “happy” pics and leave out the bad day pics. I think people get annoyed when every picture depicts something totally wonderful, when in reality, it isn’t (at least not all the time). I like posting happy pictures too, but sometimes people go waaaaay overboard!

I do love sincere happy pictures. However, I did know this one young mom who used to ‘stage’ each and every picture to make it look they were living a literally picture perfect life. She even admitted that she staged these happy picture moments and that most of them were not real.

So, everyone posting a truly sincere happy picture, go for it, enjoy the moment and enjoy reliving the happy moment and thank you for sharing that happy moment. All the moms who post staged pictures….who do you really think you are kidding?

I personally don’t care what pictures you post on Facebook, but if you have the need to post every single day, then you need to understand that most of the rest of the world (your family excluded) really doesn’t care about most of it so we need to filter you out a lot. Oversharing doesn’t mean you are happy to me, it means that you desperately want attention. That’s fine, but also understand that most of us are busy and need to filter out the fluff.

I share happy pictures of my kids but I share other pictures and other things that happen in my life. I love my kids but I have other interests and hobbies outside of them. I do tend to wonder about women who post nothing except pictures and comments about their kids and don’t have anything else in their life…but hey if that’s what makes them happy, whatever.

Natasha 1 year ago

I think the “haters” are talking less about happy photos and more about too many photos in general no? The banal and mundane everyday life of raising children does not need to be documented quite as much as it is now. I doubt many lives are interesting enough that facebook needs one pic every single day.

jennlw 1 year ago

I saw an article (blog?) not too long ago about how Facebook is really Fakebook and how people post all the rainbow and unicorn stories and pictures of their lives, which can cause others to feel like failures since their lives aren’t all rainbowy with unicorns trotting by. While I understand what the author was getting at, I seriously doubt anyone really believes everyone else’s life is 100% accurately portrayed by their Facebook posts. Some people are more positive, some people are more negative, and some seem to be inviting drama. Facebook is just a snapshot of what each poster’s life is all about and I think most of us understand that. What we all should do is “like” the things we like, comment where appropriate, and scroll by what we don’t feel like engaging in. Don’t tear each other down for having different needs or communication styles!

Christy Combs 1 year ago

I see a lot of comments saying they have “friends” that over post. I think if you feel the need to put the word friend in quotation marks to refer to them then they probably shouldn’t be on your fb. You obviously don’t value them as a friend and likely they feel the same about you.
I ONLY post happy things. No one needs to know my personal issues within my relationship or what financial issues my family is having. So it’s a lot of my kids doing what they do best. BEING KIDS!!

I wouldn’t dream of sharing negative stuff because I’m just not going to rain on anyone’s parade. Don’t want people worrying about us. I can’t believe people would bad mouth happy families.

The comment she makes about social media and keeping connected is very important to some of us that don’t all live around the block from our family and friends. Social media is a quick and easy way that almost everyone has access to keep those people in the loop. Also when people make snarky comments about family photo sharing it trivializes the things that I feel are most important.

Heather Crudo 1 year ago

I have 3 small kids and I post my share of cute family moments, plays, preschool graduation but I definitely have “friends” who are over posters with the family photos. I don’t need to see every waking moment of your children’s lives! It’s annoying, makes you look like a bragger and WILL get you unfollowed or unfriended. So you won’t stop sharing happy moments huh? You you go on and continue to post Suzy homemaker! You most likely don’t have much of an audience because everyone has already unfollowed you. You just don’t know it.

Momagain 1 year ago

Unhappy things are, quite often, private things. I may text, call or email the friends or relatives who need to know, or may have useful advice. But generally, outside of the occaision situation when you just have to laugh and are willing to laugh at yourself publicly, nobody photo documents the crappy things in life, broken things, angry faces or weeping partners.

Christi Adrian-Monson 1 year ago

The way I view Facebook is as a 24/7/365 party. I share the same things I would have shared 20-30 years ago (if I had been an adult them)… funny antecdotes about my frustrating yet adorable toddler… political influences in our world and lives… awesome recipies I found that my culinary friends HAVE to try sometime… Sometimes, I’m in a good mood and my posts are happy, “perfect” and light. Other times, I find myself overwhelmed and challenged and reach out to friends and family for sympathy, support and advice. Still others, there is just too much going on that day and I have to decline the invitation to socialize. But this idea that we are different online than we would be in “real-life” is ridiculous. REALLY stop and think. Think about your posts… then think about the last family get together or holiday party you attended. Were your interactions REALLY that different?

To be honest, I would probably block this woman. I personally use Facebook for offbeat news stories, political happenings, and things that make me think about the outside world. I like my friends, I like their kids, I even post a photo of my family once in a while. I just don’t like it when the same family is clogging up my news feed with what I believe are variations of the same photo each day. That’s my opinion. To the author of the article I say “Rock on Sister,” …but I would still block you.

Kristin Nosbusch 1 year ago

I live and work in a small town and I hear, if not on a weekly then a monthly basis, how much people enjoy seeing pictures of my kids. And I assume they say much the same to the other people they follow on Facebook. A lot of them are moms who’s kids are grown up and maybe are raising grandchildren far away. Sometimes they’re moms my age that are going through the same ups and downs we are. Sometimes they’re women without kids that enjoy seeing family life but don’t want that lifestyle for themselves. I know I love seeing pictures from friends and family especially if those people are physically removed from me. For me, it’s about staying connected.

Christina Herrera 1 year ago

Agree with Deirdre Popp, our life isn’t perfect by any means but I don’t share all the serious and negative stuff we deal with, to me that is private and no one really wants to hear about it.

I think its an honorable way to FB, however I do know there are people who hate people who post baby pics!

If you are on my Facebook friends list then I want to see your life. I want to see pictures of your kids, your vacation, your wedding, special meal you made or had… I think the problem with the whole “don’t share your family pics and life on Facebook” mentality is Infact because we aren’t selective enough about who we are sharing our memories with. Your true friends and family (especially if you live far away) will want to see what’s going on in your life and probably be thankful to have this connection. If the girl who sat behind you in third grade doesn’t want to see pics of your family maybe you should rethink who you are friending.

Ashlee 1 year ago

I LOVE this post! I saw that article (or one of them) the other day and felt my own desire to retort as well. The fact that there are unpleasant moments does not make the happy moments a lie. Some of us have family and friends who live hundreds of miles away and love to see photos of our babies as much as possible. My biggest problem with the article I just saw was that it ended with a line like, “which is how it should be.” To each his own. Personally, I fall on the side of picture sharer and embracer of joy.

Even for my husband since he works a lot and doesn’t get to share in all the little moments of our days. Some days aren’t good, and I’ve posted a tantrum picture or two as well, but over all I try to focus on the positive things in our lives. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to look. *shrug* And when I see my friends’ happy photos, I’m happy for them too and glad I get to share in those parts of their lives!
