What has life and relationships come to? Do you literally believe in everything that you see or read on Facebook? I find that lately, everything we do is related to Facebook. Almost every conversation will lead to Facebook.
"Have you see John's pictures on Facebook??"
"Did you read John's status update??"
"OMG, you know... I saw on John's Facebook that.... "
Relationship status: Single/Married to/In a Relationship with...
John is now friends with Jenny and Josie.
Gossip magazines used to be the BIG thing. That is just because everyone is so bored with their own lives that they wanna see how others fail miserably at life too even if they do not know these celebrities personally! Only to make themselves feel better about their own life.
Facebook is great tool to reconnect and stay in touch with friends but as usual, all good things will eventually be abused by us humans kinda like how we are abusing Earth itself. Facebook has now evolved into a place where you go over and SPY on others to see how they are doing or STALK guys or chicks or even exes in hopes that maybe they are having a horrible time without you.
I have seen so many and hear couples quarrel over Facebook status updates or even just friend requests! Cases like these happen only of course with those super insecure partners who feels the need to control even their other half's Facebook.
Then, there are days when you read someone's Facebook status and get upset because somehow it offenses you or you feel like it is meant to be shot right at you. You get extremely agitated and starts feeling super duper defensive. Though sometimes, you just find it fun to poke at people whom you think deserves a confrontation but of course doing it straight to their face means they won't accept it. Hence, resorting to hints and as the saying goes... 'siapa makan cili merah, dia yang rasa pedas' in English it means, 'who ate the red chili, he'll feel its fury'.
So, you know when you have hit just the right spot, you get all sort of responses from even those you didn't intend for the message to get to. Sometimes, it is hilarious. But yea, EGO goes a long way in ruining a lot of relationships be it friendship or romantic relationship or even with your own family members! It is only because no one really likes to be confronted or be told to their face of their flaws or wrong doings.
Those who admit their flaws or wrong doings will be able to accept and appreciate the constructive criticism. For those who can't, they will forever be angry and break all ties with whoever who dropped the bomb on them. Not to mention, they will continue to be the person they are and still face the problems in future with whoever who tries to correct them.
Ok, I may be deviating far from topic but what I am just trying to say is..
Not everything you read on Facebook is true! Life is not all about Facebook! Creative editing on your Facebook with pretty pictures, extremely 'uuuwahhh' status updates and inflating the number of friends you have is just plain depressing. You may not even know who the crazy hell they are and just because it makes you seem popular its just plain ridiculous. Do you know how many strangers are reading and viewing your profile, criticizing and scrutinizing every detailed aspects of your life on Facebook?
Personal relationships has slowly depreciated to Facebook relationships. It seems everyone prefers or rather to just be on Facebook, reading and believing every single thing on it. I just think it is plain sad. I am using Facebook but I just find that if Facebook is the source of your arguments or the source of your unhappiness, I advise you to delete your account and not use it.
No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
Only you can make that difference for yourself.
