Social media can be a great tool to keep in touch with old classmates as well as friends and family that live far away.
Yet it can become a way of life for some; the people that base their life on the “number of likes, friends and friend requests” they get, and that’s sad because they’ve lost sight of reality and the people in their life.
My own personal feeling is that I would rather have human touch, a voice, and an interaction with someone in the real, physical world. It means more to me when I get a call from a friend or they stop by to visit me than by any “friend request” I receive from someone who never game me the time of day over the years or put the effort in to reach out to me. While social media can be a great tool, especially if you use it for business, I don’t base my life on it. I don’t take every “friend” request just because I receive one. I’m more cautious on social media than I am in the real world. My love, my children and my close friends mean the world to me and I will never let social media take priority over them.
So today I want you to look at your life with a different perspective and ask yourself these questions: Are you more in touch with the physical world and the people in it or are you more focused on your social media page? Where is your priority…with people you don’t know well on social media or with the ones you do know well in your life?
And the most important question to ask yourself is this: Do you spend more time on social media than you do with the people you love?
Don’t base your life on “likes and friends” on social media; base your life on the people in your life that love you.
I know I do.
Wishing you love and light,
