Fourth Rule of Social Media

Love does not come from a screen, it comes from real people.

Yes, you got more likes today! That is great! You may think that people love you. No, they love your words, humor, and ideas. 

You are not what you post. See rule number three. 

Do not tie so much of your emotions up in the likes and opinions of others online. What do your online “friends” really know about you? They know what you have shown them. The exception to this one rule is that if you are completely open and transparent online like I am, you can ignore what I just said. Move along. 

For me what you see is what you get. 

Even transparency only goes so far. It is still the public me and not the intimate me my husband and family see. That is where my love lives in that realm of reality.
