Who would of known that social media would of taken over like it has. I don't think it's going away anytime soon. This means you need to get used to it. I've always felt if you don't want people to know something about you, then don't post it on social media.

Just as you don't post what's going wrong in your life, neither do your friends and family.
Don't get me wrong, I don't think social media is a bad thing. But, you shouldn't take it too seriously. If you are playing the comparison game, you will never win. This will leave you feeling depleted and empty.
Here are 6 things you don't want to post on social media while in a relationship:

The Gottman Institute for Couples found that the best way to make your emotional bank account grow, is to have lots of small deposits over a long period of time.
