Your Words Matter

Your Words Matter

How we use our words on social media verses how we would speak face-to-face doesn’t always match up. Everyday on our newsfeeds we see lobbying for social causes, cyber-bulling, shaming, celebrating and grieving. We hungrily consume information about other people’s lives, freely feeling we have a right to know the details and express our opinions. 

The Veil of Social Media

The Veil of Social Media

We are now more connected to people than we ever have been. Or so it appears. How deep can a connection through social media really go? We only get a partial view into people’s lives. It’s like looking into someone’s windows as you drive by their house. It’s only a partial view. Not until I actually step inside their house do I really have a clear picture of what’s going on in the inside of their house, how they’ve decorated, or if they’re neat or messy. Our lives on social media are very much a partial view inside our lives.

We’ve all been there; we’ve all seen it. Three beautiful children, a handsome husband, the new Lexus making a slight appearance in front of their Anthropologie-esque home with their new puppy making its debut on your Instagram feed. One of these pictures was in my feed recently. The caption read “I’m so in love with these people. #Blessed #Godisgood.” In that moment I was genuinely thankful with her. Then I glanced down to read the comments.
