Is Social Media affecting your relationships?

In the age of social media you sometimes have to look up from your phone and ask yourself some serious life questions.

Let me help:

Do you look at your phone while people are talking to you?

Do you text during dates?

Do you take a picture of everything you eat?

Do you check your phone when you wake up in the middle of the night?

DING DING DING! You my friend have an addiction if you answered Yes to one or more of those questions. This addiction may be holding you back in the following ways:

  • You may be missing connections

If you are always on your phone there is a strong chance that you are missing out on meeting great people everyday.

  • You may be ignoring your loved ones

When i’m out to dinner I always put my phone away so that my boyfriend gets my undivided attention and he does the same. Imagine how you would feel if someone started scrolling down their timeline while you were talking to them. RUDE!

  • You may be losing your interpersonal skills

Social media addicts often becoming socially awkward in real life settings because they are so used to sharing their thoughts to strangers via the internet. Don’t become the weirdo at the party in the corner on their phone all night.

  • You may be giving up too much information

People often begin to post about what they are currently watching, eating, reading, and sometimes even where they are going. This can be dangerous because of all the creeps out there who are lurking the internet. Certain things you should keep to yourself!

Put your phone down for a certain amount of time per day and participate in the REAL WORLD! 

XOXO Natalia
