Interacting with family and friends is an important part of each day. Social media helps me to stay connected with those far away, but I avoid relying solely on social media because it takes away the intimacy of communication.
When I make time to see the people who mean the world to me, we embrace and share smiles. Being in the same place with them adds to the richness of our experiences together. Our memories have deeper roots when we commit to spending time together.
Social media makes it easy to reach family and friends in far places. Having the instant connection with them allows me to share good news right away.
The instant gratification of social media also gives me a chance to gain others’ perspectives. My support system is extensive because I have my social media friends within easy reach.
Although I value the immediacy of social media, I avoid relying on it for my sole means of communication. I consider the sentiments that come from personal contact very important.
Just hearing the voice of someone special strengthens my bond with them. My focus is on keeping solid relationships intact.
Today, technology makes many things easier, but I remain connected to the old way of doing some things. Maintaining personal contact with special people is important to me. I am committed to balancing social media interaction with spending quality time with loved ones.
