Social media is without a doubt a great networking tool, but often times we find ourselves anticipating the next like, comment or retweet whenever we share something of significance. We tend to evaluate the lives of others based on photographs or videos that appear on our newsfeed whether they’re genuine or not. How many times have you seen someone update their relationship status only to change it within a matter of weeks? Have we become so subjected to the opinion of others that we’ll basically do anything for attention, even if it means putting on a front about happiness?
Well, we here at All Black Media have found several fascinating reasons why we believe most happy couples don’t boast about love on social media, and we just had to share it with you.
If everything is going well in a person’s life and relationship, they don’t see any value in wasting time writing posts online to prove this fact to others. It’s not like happy couples don’t take photos or check social media feeds, but their lives are thrilling enough that most have no need to be distracted by it.
Revealing all your personal problems to everyone you know on social media is about the least effective method available for solving your issues. It’s only going to make things worse in your relationship.
You’ll gain nothing from posting evidence of how happy you are on your Facebook page. The joy is to be found in being together, not in posting about being together. For people who understand this, constantly posting on social media has little appeal.
People who are in a truly happy relationship aren’t interested in using each other to prove their happiness to others. They are together because they want to be, and they couldn’t care less whether their page says “in a relationship” or not.
Researchers have found that those who don’t use social media are much happier than those who do because they don’t constantly compare themselves with their colleagues and friends — all of whom always appear to be somehow better or happier.
Too often we forget that the only thing that matter is our “real” lives, our relationships, our experiences, and our feelings — not the endless search for popularity online.
