How many people do you know who are on Social Networking? All of my friends are and family. I started to observe how Social Networking has taken over people’s personal life and time. I had a facebook at one point in my life when it first came out and I no longer have one for several reasons. I found myself waking up in the middle of the night checking my post to see what is everyone doing, I found myself reading peoples personal issues and what they are going through and then I would stop to analyze myself and my issues, so I made a decision to get off it.
Relationships? Could over sharing on Facebook and other sites about your personal issues ruin your relationship? From my personal opinion social networking and Social Media can ruin your relationship. I would have to say social Media because you have this image of a female when you see them online on a music video or when you see them on a magazine, we all know that sex sells but would you want your significant other to look like that? I believe so; you start to wonder what if my wife looked like that? What if she had a body like that? Eyes start to wonder and then you start thinking maybe I should try something new. I may not have that coca cola shape body but one thing I do have is a Heart to Love! Everyone you know is on Facebook from the person you dated in kindergarten to your crush you had in 5th grade. So you have reconnected with the people you have known or went to school with and you have wonderful conversations and you have so much in common with them that you realize whoa!! I cannot even talk to my husband or wife like this for hours like I’m doing now on Facebook. Divorce lawyers say Facebook in particular is a goldmine of information for divorce.
All around the world you see relationships failing because this texting and social networking issue. Women are insecure because there boyfriends have a password on their phone and from the minute they come home they are on the phone texting there life away and your trying to find a conversation and you can’t because he’s laughing at whatever he finds so funny coming in through that phone. Whatever happened to watching a movie together and cuddling? Now it’s lets watch a movie and let me have my phone in my hand. How many people can relate to that?
Is this how it is in your house half the time? Yes I believe it, you start to think this is normal but it is not. Why be together if everything you do is being on the computer and update status all day. This is one way to fall out of love. “It’s a very common topic,” said Jennine Estes, a couples’ therapist from San Diego who reported that she sometimes hears about Facebook issues on a daily basis in her office. Couples come into conflict over everything from one party reconnecting with an ex to one not mentioning the relationship on Facebook at all, And these problems aren’t limited to relationships with pre-existing problems. Facebook presents so many challenges to committed relationships that Jason and Kelli Krafsky wrote a book called, “Facebook and Your Marriage.” “We’ve heard horror story after horror story,” says Kelli. “The moment you open the door, you could be two to three clicks away from making a really poor decision. You could be in a vulnerable state. You could have had a couple glasses of wine. It could open temptation to revisit the past.”
I say social networking and Social Media had ruined our minds, What do you think?
