30 Tips to Stay Married 30 Years Today: NEVER VENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA!

The Inter­net is forever

Mod­ern Proverb

This is the only bit of advice that I have given in all caps but it is about as crit­i­cal as it gets.

In life there are always frus­tra­tions and in the days before the inter­net peo­ple vented in a bar, or to a friend or, as I like to do, take my frus­tra­tions out on a pin­ball machine (noth­ing bet­ter when you need to relax). It can be very healthy to vent one’s frustrations.

How­ever it is not healthy to do so on social media.

Social media is good for many things but vent­ing at a moment in anger isn’t one of them. When angry one is liable to say things that we instantly regret, pic­ture say­ing or writ­ing said thing on a per­ma­nent plat­form where the world can see it and com­ment on it, and where it never dis­ap­pears (don’t think for one moment it won’t get screen caped).

We’ve all made the mis­take of say­ing things in anger to a spouse, don’t com­pound said error by doing it so on face­book, twit­ter, snapchat or any­where else where there will it has the poten­tial of doing per­ma­nent dam­age to a relationship.

Inci­den­tally it goes with­out say­ing that this advice is worth­while for things far beyond marriage.
