We live in a world of bloggers, vloggers, solo travelers who capture every single moment of their trips, YouTubers, and Instagrammers who would do the impossible just to get more likes and followers.
These people use social media as a stage where they can show the most beautiful, exciting, and interesting parts of their lives.
No one wants to expose themselves in the middle of a mental breakdown, right? Everyone wants to show how amazing their life is and how blessed they are to be alive at this very age.
Furthermore, many people tend to lose sight of where their online life ends and where reality begins. These people find it extremely hard to tell the difference between what’s real and what’s fake. Unfortunately, many relationships suffer or even end because of this misconception. Opening your life, your privacy, and your soul to the online world may seem like a good idea at first. However, if there’s a chance you might lose yourself in the process, none of this is worth it.
By putting ourselves out there, showing fragments of our lives to online strangers, we might be missing out on good, genuine people. If you ruin a first date by constantly posting about it in your IG stories, you might lose something worth putting your phone down for. You might lose someone who would be loyal, caring, and kind to you.
One genuine heart that loves you truly is worth more than millions of followers on your social media accounts.
In today’s world, where everyone wears a mask, it’s extremely rare to see an authentic soul.
Therefore, if your face is constantly buried in the blue light screen, you might miss your chance to see such a real, trustworthy person. Just think about how much time you spend scrolling purposelessly through your feed. Imagine what you could do for all this wasted time.
On the other hand, if you’re already in a relationship, are you truly happy when you post every single detail of it? Isn’t a romantic connection between two people supposed to be intimate and private? If you’re constantly revealing delicate and emotional aspects of your relationship, you’re putting its fate at risk.
Undoubtedly, many people meet on social media, but many people part ways because of it too.
When it comes to dating, it’s best for you to keep it silent. At least until you’re absolutely sure you’re with the right person, who also feels the same as you about posting your life online. Don’t let other people’s opinions in the comment section mislead your perception of this person. Love shouldn’t be a Facebook status. It should be something you feel deeply and genuinely. And it should be something you share only with the person you’re in love with.
Enjoying your relationship in privacy will not only keep it safe, but it will also protect it from other people’s jealousy, envy, and cruel judgment.
On the contrary, putting it out there will only make it vulnerable and will weaken the bond you have built together. So, make sure you don’t lose what’s real, chasing what only appears to be.
What you need to do is prioritize the most significant things in your life. The ones that spark joy in you and brighten up your soul. And the people who make you feel genuinely happy and loved. When you do that, take the time needed to show your gratitude and appreciation for these things and people in your life. Go offline for a while, so you can slow down and observe the real world around you. This will bring you a peace of mind, and will surely help you appreciate what you have and protect your relationship.
