Why Social Media Doesn't Define A Friendship

Today's world is all about social media, as we all already know!

Some people get in their heads that just because they are your Facebook friend, or they follow you on any social media, that yeah they know you.

When someone asks you if you know so and so, and you're friends with them on social media, and you reply yes, you're wrong.

Here's why:

Can you answer basic questions that you should know about friends, without referring to their social media accounts?

"Whats their favorite color?"

"What are there hobbies?"

"What do they do to cheer themselves up?"

"Am I ever there for them, in their times of struggle?"


If you can't answer basic questions that you should know the answer to if their your friend, then,

You don't know them, you know of them. There's a difference.

Don't let it get to your head.

Social media isn't everything, believe it or not, it's truly not.

We only use it to make us all seem a little cooler than we are, think about it for a minute, do we post any of the bad times we have in our life?

No, we don't. It's only there to put out that party or concert we went to.

Social media doesn't define a person, and neither does your relationship with them.

Girls, and boys that are social media obsessed, this isn't meant to offend you or anyone in general.

I was inspired to write this article by a "friend."

Besides, some of us prefer to be more private on social media than others,some very wise words I was once told were "the best time of our lives, are spent with people we love, and we catch memories with our eyes, not our phones."

If you were like me, and grew up always being outside, then you get where I am coming from!

Social media isn't everything, and it sure doesn't define if you know a person or not.

As told by a 17 year old girl.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
