Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google +, and Pinterest have become part of our daily web browsing. Most of us are on these social sites for fun, business, or for DIY ideas.
Social media have become the new way to communicate with loved ones. However, some have used these social sites for negative reasons and unfortunately I have seen where husbands and wives have used their pages to tear down their spouse. This is not what we should use our pages for.
As we learned last week, communication is extremely important in marriage. We must not allow our words to damage our martial foundation. This is true even when the words are written. We need to make sure the words we type will not have a negative effect on our spouse and our marriage. Don’t allow a moment of frustration to cause you to talk negatively about your spouse. These sites are not the place to air your dirty laundry.
14 Day Marriage Challenge: Social Media
Why Social Media?
We are on social media accounts every day. We should not use it as a way to bash, belittle, or bitch and moan about our marriages. Social Media should be a way to connect with friends and family. With the influx of the uses of social media, we can definitely use it as a tool to show others that strong marriages are still alive.
Instead of using your statuses as negative pitfall why not use it to uplift yourself, your spouse, and others. Even when you are not in the best of moods, write and positive post, saying, or just post a happy picture.
How to use Social Media
1. Remember your spouse love language.
2. Don’t use words that would not fit into how your spouse communicate.
3. Don’t use words that could be misconstrued as negative.
4. Be very careful of inside jokes that only you and your spouse understand because others could misinterpet your intentions.
5. Remember even if you delete your post, those on your timeline have seen it.
The purpose of this challenge is to change the way we interact with our spouse on the social media sites.
1. Use your social media accounts to say something positive about your spouse for 7 days.
2. Make the posts meaningful
3. Tag your spouse (if they are on those sites)
4. Tag Still Dating My Spouse (Twitter: @datingmyspouse Facebook: Still Dating My Spouse Instagram: @datingmyspouse)
5. Have fun!
How wonderful would it be for your spouse to log into their social media account and get a notification of being tagged in a post & they read something positive & sweet from you. That would just make their day.
Which social media site do you and your spouse have accounts on?
