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.
Sounds simple, but you know that is not always the case. I hear this a lot, someone posted something. You thought it was harmless, but then your partners feelings were hurt. If this keeps happening, it will drive a wedge in the relationship.
You also want to be careful about playing the comparison game on social media. People post their best side first on social media. You may feel like all of your friends and family on social media have an amazing life. That is not always the case. 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:
It can happen to anyone. You hear about it all the time. Unfortunately, depression is on the rise. If you suffer from depression, you aren't alone. Like many people you're calendar is probably packed, and you don't feel like you can set aside time for yourself.
You need to take care of the kids, clean the house, cook dinner, finish that last minute project at work and so on. When will it end? Is what you're thinking. This doesn't give your mind a chance to rest.
After a while, you begin to feel down. You may feel like you aren't appreciated. If you don't get help for this, it can lead to intrusive thoughts. Such as, 'I don't fit in or I'm simply not good enough. This is when your mind begins to lie to you, and you don't want to believe it.
It is not selfish to take care of yourself. If you don't, you will eventually crash.
Here are 5 tips for taking care of yourself when you are feeling depressed:
At the beginning of a relationship, everything is great. You can't wait to see your partner at the end of the day. But, after a while things change.
You may be working longer hours, after that promotion. You bought a new house. You have a couple of children that need your attention. Somehow, you put everyone else first in your life. This leaves you last on the list.
If you continue to do this, it will come out in your relationship. You will begin to feel distant from your partner. This can cause resentment. You don't feel like you are having fun in your life anymore.
I know you need to do the dishes, take the kids to school and go to the grocery store. You’re thinking how can I fit anytime in for me? Or, my husband never helps out around the house anymore, and the house still needs to be taken care of. So, you must do all the chores. Again, how can you carve out a few minutes for yourself?
This is a time where you have many options. Maybe, you like being single. Maybe, you don't. Now, you are in a relationship and you are wondering if he's the one for you? Don't worry, everyone goes through this when they are in a relationship.
This is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.
