"I See You, I Approve & I'm impressed"
Son: How did you and mom meet?
Dad: Your mom liked my selfie on Facebook and the rest is history.
Hopefully that explanation will make more sense in the next 40+ years. Social media is changing relationship dynamics. These days it's not really a celebration, a funeral or an "official" date if you haven't post about it on social media. Perhaps you could have graduated last week Friday BUT didn't have data to post the pics. Oh well, it never happened to us even if you have that damn paper in your pocket. Ha! interesting times hey.
Don't ever underestimate the power of social media. Those small yellow faces have more meaning than a lot of words. It could be a "love" reaction in your profile picture that brightens your day. That reaction on its own could mean "I see you, I approve, I'm impressed". Human beings constantly need an assurance of some sort. Those priceless gifts (see below) could be a confidence booster or a push to act on those suicide thoughts.
Why don't we seek this attention to our close friends, family members or partners? It's not quite the same as those people probably love us unconditionally. Hence people are connecting with strangers on the internet every second.
BF: Babe you look stunning stop fussing about your weight.
GF: Arg you just being nice because I'm yours
Dude abort the mission! This is one of those argument you just can't win. 200+ likes on Facebook might be better than a bunch of flowers. Even a tough guy reading this article could actually relate. Otherwise he wouldn't keep checking who liked his pic that he posted a second ago. We are all fighting for those connections. An expert's definition about connection below...
“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”
― Brené Brown
