What we see on social media, can often misconstrue our ideals of love and if we are not careful we can take on the perfection we see as the only way a relationship should be. Here are three ways on how social media has screwed up the idea of love: You scroll down your timeline and you will for sure see a couple on holiday, showing their affection, exercising together or even dressed the same way. You will never see them fighting, looking a hot mess or unhappy because that doesn’t sell. These are just mere examples of what we have constituted to be the ideals of what it means to be in the perfect relationship. Privacy? What’s that? An unknown term in the social media world because when we share we get likes and in turn these likes have come to be our new way of feeling loved. Scary! Don’t you think? There are studies that indicate, that the feeling we get from likes can be addictive and this can explain the constant need to post on what we are doing with our lives and with whom. When you begin to share, it is almost unexpectedly, expected of you to continue sharing. Now by continuing to do so, you set standards and these standards must continue to be met. Now if you are unhappy with your relationship this can make it difficult to end it, even if it is the right thing to do. For you end up aware of the fact that as much as people are happy to see you happy, they will be some, sadly, whose greatest joy, is to see your downfall. Love is bespoke, for what works for you will certainly not work for another. So be careful not to adapt another’s view of love as your own. When you share details about your relationship, do it at your own risk and have in mind that you also open yourself up for criticism, which is sometimes unwarranted.
