We have a tendency to lose ourselves in social media from time to time. We forget that real life and real relationships are all around us. We lose ourselves in trying to find out what all our friends have done today by reading their posts, rather than getting coffee with them.
We have a tendency to create our Facebook face, the parts that only the world can see, and hide all the parts we are ashamed of. It’s easier, in a friendship you have to be real in order to maintain a strong friendship. In social media you can be fake.
Sometimes we need to unplug. When you come home after a long day work you don’t need to run to your laptop, you need to connect with your family, your significant other, or whoever you share your home with.
Don’t just post a status telling your friend you are thinking about them, call them up, set up a coffee date, go do something fun with them.
Social media has literally become like a girlfriend or boyfriend for many of us, and sadly at the expense of the important people in our life.
Social media is good, but don’t put it in a place it doesn’t belong.
