“FOCUS ON HOW TECHNOLOGY CAN STRENGTHEN YOUR BONDS WITH OTHERS, AND BE KEEN TO HOW IT CAN ALSO DISTRACT US FROM GETTING WHAT WE WANT.”
Remember the days when being MySpace official was how you knew things got serious. Then it moved on to Facebook and now we are at the age of Instagram and Snapchat.
Over and over again we have seen couples get carried away with allowing social media to define their relationship. In other words, if your significant other doesn’t post you, then it’s not real. I’m not sure where the disconnect happened but people seem to think that their relationship needs an approval from social sites. If your significant other doesn’t post you, then there’s a problem with the relationship.
Now this didn’t just start, it’s not a new thing 1 it has just gotten far worse. We see couples putting their business all over social media. When they fight, when they have problems and when they make up. We even took as far as deleting our significant other if they were acting crazy or just getting on our nerves. We knew that if we removed them, they would be pissed off.
We need to learn that social media is not really life. Social Media should never define one’s relationship. As long as they are not being disrespectful, should it really matter if they post you or not? If the person wants to post you, then they will do so. But, it should be their choice. No one should be forced to like a picture, post a picture of the two of you, or etc.
Don’t let something like social media get in the way of your relationship. People on the outside really don’t care, so don’t allow them to gas you up into feeling like the only way a person can show you they care or love you is by posting you. No one should need validation from the outside looking in, so don’t look for it!
