Time Magazine published an article about “Facebook and Divorce” which raises the subject of “too much information.” We all use social networking (Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc.) to connect. What happens, however, when we choose to disconnect?
Who’s had the experience of sharing about a relationship on Facebook when you’re in the “honeymoon phase” and everything is bright in the world? How is it after the breakup? Do you “unfriend” or “unfollow” ? Do you “untag” ? We can receive tremendous support from our online friends around the world, no doubt. However, what about the angry ex, who posts rude, sarcastic, undermining statements about us? Or what we post about them? Can we stay in integrity and minimize the harm to ourselves and those we once cared about (or perhaps still do care about)?
The celebrity magazines are full of “too much information” about breakups and ex’s. Can in this information age, can we, the “normal” people hold to a higher standard and keep our “business” to ourselves? Tough questions, tough answers. Remember this: how you end a relationship sets the tone for how you begin the next one.
As always, I welcome your comments, opinions and experiences on this subject.
Thank you so much,
Dr. Adam Sheck
