The wise do not buy into other people’s perceptions of who they are and what they are capable of. Instead, they bypass a person’s public persona and see who they are in their highest expression. When you see actions taken with integrity, instead of words only, you will then know a soul’s worth ~ Shannon L. Alder

Technology And Love.

Technology has probably altered human relationships most in the past decade than anything in the past. Being a millennial myself, I saw friends and family dealing with relationships much differently than I thought. Like for instance, a lot of my friends found love on social media. Instead of meeting a person in a real physical world, they met virtual profiles. These virtual beings are very carefully crafted, almost mimicking our aspirations and succumbing to what a general idea of cool/acceptable is.

Knowing more about that someone special is an essential step in creating a bond. Social media definitely did make that a lot easier. But it also did suck out all the romanticism from it. You could now just skim through their social media feeds and personify them based on their likes, the people they followed and so on.

Technology gave us these really creative ways to meet new people. But this is laid on the foundation of how we create virtual clones of ourselves. Is that why relationships are even more difficult to keep these days?
