Social Media, Teens and the Judgement We Pass

Social Media

Social Media… it’s a jungle out there.

Firstly, let me say that I have been guilty of what I’m about to write. Why am I writing and exposing myself and possibly many of you who are reading? I’m writing because we need to address ‘Social Media, Teens and the Judgement We Pass’. We are raising teenagers and I’ve had a gut full of the harmful chatter. It’s time to say something.

We are really happy to have Heavenly Order on board as well. Heavenly Order is about making your life run as smoothly as possible, no matter what the circumstances. Being organised is not about perfection, it’s about being prepared for life. We offer hope to the overwhelmed and tired! Sarah Cottman, owner of Heavenly Order, has personally overcome the confusion and chaos that comes with Chronic Disorganisation.

Need Rescuing? Well, Clutter Rescue is here and ready…. Helen from Clutter Rescue says, ‘I’m just like you – juggling everything that comes into my life, some times succeeding, sometimes just coping.’ Clutter Rescue has been created in an effort to bring much needed help your way, they provide real honesty and advice from a woman who walks in the same shoes as you! Their website is for busy Mums wanting more balance in their lives. Helen understands that it might seem strange thinking that getting organised, having a decluttered space and schedule, and having helpful kids will give you more balance – but her promise is that it will!

I can personally recommend this company to you as I have used them in my own life. 1-800-Got-Junk are a wonderful organisation that come in and help sort out your space in a way that is like no other. Their staff are trained exceptionally and truly understand what it means to be overwhelmed by your stuff or simply time poor. In my case, we were moving countries and at the end of the packing we had one ‘storage’ room that contained the leftovers or the things that didn’t have a home. We needed help and we needed it quick. A call to 1-800-Got-Junk and they were there in a professional moment, ready and willing to help us rid ourselves of the excess.

Additionally, 1-800-Got-Junk has partnered with us in Canada when we hosted Peter Walsh for our #CalgarySpringClean Live Event. 1-800-Got-Junk were on board and at the venue ready to collect gently used items that our attendees generously donated to WINS (Women’s in Need Society). Again, their professionalism and kind service were greatly appreciated. At every turn and with every experience 1-800-Got-Junk has delivered more than they have taken away and we are grateful for their partnership.

I love that through her & her families life work, we have the opportunity to partner with them and hopefully see you engaging with them on a deeper, more meaningful level.

Dr. Robi Sonderegger who is a world renowned Clinical Psychologist and sought after speaker will be joining GetRealLive Radio to talk about INSTA-ENVY and the affect Social media is having on our every day lives.

Is it possible that our increased connectivity via Social Media is leading to things like: Depression | Anxiety | Lack of Self Worth | Panic Attacks and more? Are more and more adults finding themselves scrolling through Instagram wishing their lives looked like someone else’s HIGHLIGHTS? Or, is this just something teenagers do? Is there more fighting within homes because the ‘grass appears to be greener on the other side’? Perhaps that green grass is just a fertilizer called Amaro | Mayfair |Rise | Hudson | Valencia | X-Pro 11 | Sierra or that all time favourite | LO-FI! That’s right, it could be just that a filter not a fertilised lawn.

In terms of friendship, where does the Social Media friendship end and the the face-to-face relationship start? Because we connect online, does that instantly translate into a face-to-face relationship? For some yes, for others no. How does this then translate when the relationship doesn’t transform?

How different is our real life world and our social media world and how do those worlds interact? Now that we put our personal lives out there in such a visable way how does this impact us personally. Is there a fakeness to this? Are we using masks and creating something that isn’t really there?

In the end, is all of this extremely narcissistic?

Oh yes, we are going to be talking about this and SOOOO much more. So, invite your friends, start sharing this via Instagram | Facebook | Linkedin | Google+ | Twitter | Pinterest | the bathroom wall | scratched into a bench somewhere | chalkboard (are they even used anymore) and every other place you connect.

We can’t wait to host you… Make sure you follow the #RealityGram101
