A post has been making rounds all over the social media platforms which asks “would you delete your social media account for your relationship??”
First of all, why is anyone so desperate to make someone delete the social media account?? It sounds quite fishy. Who doesn’t like to be entertained in the free time?? Is it really a benchmark to prove one’s dedication in a relationship. I think not. It’s actually quite manipulative to even ask such a thing. If the relationship is strong already, then social media should have nothing much to do with it.
Secondly, even if the one who has been asked to do so, deletes his/her accounts, what is the probability that the person who has asked about it is going to do the same?? Some people just want to control others with such difficult and impossibly set standards. The person asking or expecting this from their partner may as well make fake accounts, cheat on their partner all the time and expect their partner to stay oblivious about it.
It makes very little sense other than that.
Gone are the day when it was quite easy to live naturally, without having a presence on the internet. Even if one stays away from it for a long time, still, at some point of time, one may need presence over some web platform.
To be honest, mostly it is done by a narcissist to control their partner. Narcissists roam around freely, even on the internet, confining their partner in a very little world of happiness that they show them. It is all fake. They cheat on them but do not want their partner to know about it. So, they show off their partner as an ideal dedicated one who kept their relationship above everything else, so that their(narc’s) ego may get boosted as a result of having such an ideal best partner in front of the others and side-by-side their lurking into and tresspassing into others’ boundaries keep on happening without ever being caught by their partner.
Don’t fall prey to such stupid words. They don’t mean a thing. More importantly, if something doesn’t feel right, you do not need to do it and if your choices sabotage the relationship, the problem is the weakness of the relationship, not your choices which are quite normal according to your contemporary times.
