More and more people are using social media nowadays to pimp out their relationships and the world has had just about enough. You know who I’m talking about. People that constantly update their status to let everyone know how incredibly happy they are with their partner…
- 10:10 : ‘My baby is the BEST’
- 10:15: ‘I LOVE my boo’
- 10:20: ‘I am Sooooo happy!’
(Is anyone actually buying this?)
Clearly, there’s nothing wrong with public displays of affection. Everyone wants to be acknowledged every now and then and a random shout out by your partner publicly is a compliment and makes you feel like the luckiest person on earth (we’ve all done it).
RANDOM is normal and sweet. I’m not talking about random here. I’m talking about the person who feels a need to point out just how unbelievably ‘HAPPY’ they are in their relationship… about every FIVE minutes (We got the message the first ten times)…
What’s interesting is, these are the same people you find out a week later that…. they’re DONE.
Your newsfeed suggests they changed their status to ’SINGLE’ and you sit there in total disbelief wondering…could this be right?
Yes, yes it is. And it’s really not that shocking. Let me explain why..
See, I call these people ‘POSERS’.
POSERS feel a need to put on a show for the world. They need to show just how wonderful their relationship is in the hopes of making others envy the life they WISH they had. They wish their partner was perfect. They wish they were full of cart-wheel worthy joy.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, there’s no happiness. Back at the ranch, it’s dissatisfaction and total disappointment. Deep down they KNOW they’re miserable but for whatever reason they need to convince the world they’re fine.
It’s a facade. A mask…
(Must we bear witness?)
The truth is, (based on our own experiences, of course) people that talk the MOST about how happy they are, are in fact, the most miserable.
We worry so much about what others think and we try so hard to keep up with the Jones’ (whoever they are), that we fail to take the time to thoroughly evaluate our REAL LIFE situation and how we REALLY feel about it. We waste our time, energy and efforts convincing others that we’re happy (hence the phony statuses and phony pictures) instead of using that same time and energy to actually MAKE ourselves happy.
Living your life to impress others is NOT a way to live.
At the end of the day it’s YOUR life. YOU have to go home to this person. YOU have to love this person. YOU have to spend the rest of your life with this person… Not your 700 friends on facebook. So before you hit share, maybe you should stop and ask yourself….AM I really happy?
Don’t be a poser. Posers are only lying to themselves. Not to mention they’re annoying the rest of the world.
