~Break Ups in the Digital Age~
Heart breaks in the digital are less tangible and more painful, reoccurring and they happen in a very subtle manner. Like a slow #death of some sorts.
You start by unpairing, unfriending, unfollowing and blocking the person. While on another platform like texting, you exchange little painful texts of why things didn’t work while bouncing back and forth between lovey texts and I miss you’s.
Some how you muster the courage to delete every picture you posted of you with them on your social profiles and the pain only grows when you realize that there are so many pictures in your computer or phone that you didn’t even post. You text some of them back to the person like some kind of a last exchange that people have with physical belongings.
Things are simply going to get more painful, spiteful and hypocritical… More and more people will flow in and out of emotions because of how passive digital arguments can get. The solution however is not in breaking ties so painfully and slowly but lies in understanding that you were on a #journey together and now have to go separate ways. It lies in being mature and emotionally advanced enough to understand that #change is inevitable and if they’re not for you there is someone out there who is… But that doesn’t mean someone who is soon becoming your past must simply disappear from your story.
We are in the digital age. We can’t afford to treat love as merely an emotion that feeds our #ego, it’s time we start looking at love like an energy field and dream sharing technology that two people have access to online and offline, where they share their #dreams together, where they build them together and where they pick up the pieces together when those dreams fall apart.
The #hope for #success with relationships in this #digital age lies only by being intensely present, by investing blind #faith and loving unconditionally to the point that even if they fall apart due to any reason, they give people the strength to depart only with love and #love alone.
