Lots of people show off their love life on social media.
She may get so caught up in how she feels about her new boyfriend that she has to share endless photos of him on social media.
For her, it isn’t only about how he makes her feel when they are together.
She also gets a rush from how other people react to them.
When she shows off her love life on social media, she is hoping that she gets recognition, praise and even envy from other people who are watching.
This kind of recognition actually makes her feel even better about her relationship.
If other people can react so positively or enviously to her boyfriend, she must be doing something right.
This is how she would think.
She would feel more acknowledged when the people recognize her happiness.
She would feel more of a sense of security that she made the right pick.
This is one of the major reasons why so many people show off their love lives on social media.
Social media has also reached the point in today’s society where it has become a major part of people’s identity.
In other words, if it isn’t shown on social media, it didn’t happen.
This is why you will often see people taking multiple photos of themselves at multiple locations or events so as to post them instantly to their social media accounts.
She is thinking that if she doesn’t take these photos and post them to her social media, she was never here.
She has to have proof of that. To her, posting this kind of proof on her social media account will validate the fact that she was at this event.
This kind of behavior has been taken to such an extreme that some of these people don’t even allow themselves to truly enjoy the event.
She is so caught up in taking the perfect photo to post to her social media accounts that she isn’t present to the occasion and can’t really enjoy it.
Posting these photos to social media means that she lived this event.
However, how much of the event did she really live?
How much precious time did she lose being obsessed with taking these photos as the event was underway?
Indeed, social media has reached a level where it has become a major part of people’s identities.
As I mentioned earlier, to her, if she doesn’t show her love life on social media, it may mean that it really isn’t happening.
After all, she shows everything else.
Why not her love life too?
The danger of getting carried away with showing too much of your love life on social media is that you may forget that the relationship comes first.
You may be so caught up in the aesthetics or the facade of showing that you are happy that you forget about the importance of working on your relationship and keeping it healthy.
Your focus is too narrowly constricted to what you are trying to portray to the world at large as opposed to making sure that you and your partner are having quality time together that has nothing to do with setting up the perfect photo to post to your social media account in a few moments.
It is best to do less with social media when it comes to your love life and focus on the relationship instead.
