If you want a friend or family member to know something, or if you care what they think, TALK to them. Social media has conditioned us to assume knowledge and intentions. This is a terrible way to live and communicate. The disconnect is real.
my newest social experiment is to go completely off of FB “proper” and evaluate my stress levels and connectedness. Difficult, yes. Healthy, yes. Recommended, yes.
I am LESS connected to the noise. I am MORE connected to things and people that actually matter. And shocker?! Stress overall is down because sometimes not knowing everything is just better.
I do desire connections with my FB friends but the cost must be managed. If you are connected to me and care what I think about something, don’t assume I know about it, text me or call me maybe. Even better, Visit. Personal connections are how we know the current stuff that matters.
