Angela and Patti discussed the hot topic of social media and how it can affect relationships.
We are concerned about how social media can cause hurt feelings, depression, addiction to social media, and comparison.
Here are some reflection questions:
❤️ What makes people feel it’s okay to post things that they would most likely never say face to face or outside of social media?
❤️ Where does this boldness or insensitivity come from?
❤️ Is proving your point worth all the drama and losing friendships over?
Today, we would like to explore how to manage some of those difficult behaviors. ❤️ How do we relate to social media in a healthy way? ❤️ Are you taking a break from social media because it is “too toxic?”
What do you find frustrating about social media, what makes it so toxic to you? We love to hear from listeners if they could share what they find disappointing about social media, why not leave us a comment.
Question to the Listeners: ❤️ What are some of the things you ENJOY seeing on social media. Share in a comment and let us know.
Angela: I love healing meditations and I share those because I love them.
Patti: I love seeing photos of families having fun together, vacation photos, travel adventures and cute positive memes.
In a previous podcast (Episode 4) we discussed going Beyond Comparison and Accepting One Self. “Cancel culture refers to the popular practice of withdrawing support for (canceling) public figures and companies after they have done or said something considered objectionable or offensive.
Cancel culture is generally discussed as being performed on social media in the form of group shaming.” https://www.dictionary.com/e/pop-culture/cancel-culture
Patti wrote a blog posts similar to this subject called Don’t Be That Guy! It is about shaming someone or making them the poster child in the workplace. When someone has committed a bad behavior or done something procedurally wrong, in some organizations, they use this term “Don’t be that (Guy) Person” for humiliation or an example of what not to do. I feel this is similar to the cancel culture. In the blog post is a poll. With this question – Is shaming an effective management strategy?
Angela will be holding gentle movement classes Come September and to be informed SIGN UP TO HEAR ABOUT CLASSES in the link in the show notes. For me dance and movement are an authentic way to connect to myself and others. https://bit.ly/3fI6EpQ
