We get it, you think that you need to document every single aspect of your life on social media, just like you're on Big Brother. But I hate to break it to you, you are being tremendously annoying.
I get that when something exciting happens in our lives we want to let everyone that we know, what has happened and share the happiness. And that I can agree with.
But you don't need to post what you and your boyfriend send to each other, your relationship issues, break-up reasons or where you go to eat/drink etc.
According to Clayton et al (2013), overuse of social media sites can lead to infidelity and break-ups. Elphenston &Noller (2011), also found that overuse of social media to having a negative effect on relationships, such as jealousy and mistrust.
So why continue to overuse and post everything about your relationships on social media?
Not everyone posts about their relationships, there's also the select few that post pictures of themselves detailing either how "ugly" they are or just how "happy" they are.
According to Igor (2014), people who overuse social media outlets are more likely to report signs of depression.
So again I ask, why would you waste your precious time posting on social media?
I will tell you one thing sweetheart, and I really hope it sticks, nobody gives a flying fuck what you do!
Not a single fuck given... at all!
I know that may sound rude, but the more you share on social media, the more people are going to think that you need attention and that all of your adventures are purely for social media purposes.
Why would you want to live that way?
Go to an exotic place that you've always wanted to go, to expand your soul; not just to post on social media to make everyone jealous.
Don't use social media as a way to portray this "wonderful" life that you are living and actually go live it!
Do yourself a favor and live for you, not for your audience!
