my online friendships are what's easiest right now





That sounds totally weird right?

Why would I be thankful for online friendships when I could be spending so much time with real life people?

 

Because I don't have the time for real life people...okay only slightly true. I can always make time but where?

 

One thing that I love about social media is I feel like I am involved with all of my friends and family without ever speaking to them or needing to see them in real life. That sounds bad but it's true. I have 100 thousand things going on during the day and can literally pop in while on the couch from my phone and say hi to a few people VIA messenger and call it a day.

We check in. We talk. I can see all about your life and I can share all about mine. 

I have kids, work, my home and a million other things going on it’s so hard trying to maintain in person social interaction at the moment.

 

IT WORKS.

 

Sure it isn't sitting down and having a cup of coffee but if I am being honest, nobody has time for that. At least I don't. Friendships are meant to be valued and I value all of mine but I cannot make time to sit down with every single person that I know and talk about life...it just isn't going to happen. Not only that but everyone is busy ALL OF THE TIME it just won't work.

It sort of sounds like I don't want to see people.

 

That isn't true I love real life social interaction however it isn't always necessary.

 

Everyone is either in school, working, has families, traveling or they just want to be home bodies therefore making online friendships key to making it all work.

 

You can pop in check in on people, send a quick message a nice hello all while wearing yoga pants...or no pants. As annoying as social media is. It works and therefore because of it I am able to maintain friends via the interwebs and it works for me right now.

 

 

Will I want to spend time with people in real life soon? maybe.

Does maintaining friendships online work best for me right now? absolutely.
