#RAWTRUTH101: Social media DOES NOT destroy relationships
We’re going to approach a topic that is widely debated. How many stories have we heard of people “finding out” folks are cheating via facebook, twitter… Fam, social media does NOT destroy relationships. Lack of self control does. Social media sites do not poison people, it only showcases what already exists. In a way, you should be thankful that you have such a wide open window into how the person you deal with actually behaves. This is not for the purpose of judgment, it’s just the way it is. The truth is, some folks are NOT relationship ready, and that’s okay. If you find out some crap they did on line, I know (trust me, I KNOW) how bad that hurts. Don’t let it kill you, here’s why… NOW YOU KNOW. Don’t beat yourself up because your heart hurts when you find out someone you love still struggles with self control, IT’S NOT YOU. You didn’t do anything wrong, at least you found out and keep it moving.
You have to understand something, hurting people hurt other people. PERIOD. It will always be that way until the hurt person finds a way to un-hurt. If they don’t love them, they will never love you. Some people go bananas at all the sex being thrown around on the internet, they can’t handle it, and they overdose. Why are you crying? Let them be tears of joy that you’re smart enough to know that’s not how you want to be treated. There are some men and women in this world that are so scarred, they think behaving that way is fun & normal. If you can’t trust your mate on social media? That is not a person you should try to build anything meaningful with. They’re just not ready. For those of you in long distance relationships, the early signs of this are critical. We must all learn to gain wisdom from the things we KNOW. We have to stop ignoring things for what they truly are and just examine them in truth. Yes the truth hurts, but don’t you want it? Change your perspective… Give me the painful truth. I refuse to live a beautiful lie.
