Maybe it’s the holiday weekend, I just don’t know, but I feel the need to offer this bit of unsolicited social media advice to no one in particular:
When you post on Facebook or wherever how happy you are with your husband, wife, family, blah, blah, blah – we all know that means that you just had a fight and are teetering on the edge of breaking up or getting a divorce. That this public professing of your undying, altruistic love and spiritual fulfillment somehow masks that you know your significant other monitors your Facebook postings and friends like a jealous hawk.
But that this highly public declaration will soothe and balm the nerves of whatever just happened. I assure you – it does not and now we all know. The more over-the-top the declaration, the sooner the separation. It would have to be with such ham-fisted attempts to manipulate.
Please stop. Both volunteering to lie to others and yourself. Keep your shit tight and work it out in private. Nothing ever gets better by inviting the world into your own personal problems.
