Dixie Kid, I'm with you. Isn't Facebook (and all of social media, for
that matter) about 'oversharing', as the author put it?
A good reminder to remain balanced. I agree with the "over sharing"
comment. With all that does get shared in today's world, couples need to be
careful to keep enough things just between them. At the end of the day, however,
whenever we communicate, whether by letter, conversation, email, text or
facebook, to me it seems important always to ask ourselves, "am I saying
this to make myself look better, or am I saying this to benefit and build up
someone else?" I know I wish I could always answer to the latter instead of
the former. Good article.
Everything posted on FB is done by those seeking attention or approval.
I have extended family who post photos and blog all day long.I
wonder how they have time for that.I wonder what else they are doing
with their lives.Balance is important. In our relationships, in our
personal time, our health, spiritual, mental, spiritual, service, work, play
parts of life. Blogging all day is so lame.
It seems that the first part of the article was very much a
#myhusbandsbetterthanyours. I think a great way to honor your marriage is to
refrain from blogging about it to the world. You can tell your husband he's
awesome to his face all you want. It just seems the most respectful to
you have a husband and a cat, nice life! Let's talk when you have your
first kid and he couldn't wake up at 2 am to change diaper - if he pass
that test, he's cool...LOL
Nice article with some good points. I would like to point out that husbands
sometimes like, and even need, their wives to gush over them. Certainly it
should be measured but keep in mind that perhaps there are wives that brag about
their husbands not for competitive purposes, but rather to let their husbands
know how much they are loved and appreciated.
There are generally two kinds of posts I see on FB. Complain about everything,
or brag about how perfect life is. In reality most of us live somewhere in the
middle. I think this blog post is just a reminder to people to not compare
themselves with others and focus on improving their own relationships and
themselves. Thanks for writing this, it was good for me to think about.
There are obviously some feelings here that made this article necessary...
