Living in social-media-land comes with a lot of issues. We often reach out to people, and they don’t respond, and we’re offended, and a lot of underlying feelings come up.
This happens because social media has become a third line of communication. We have verbal communication, nonverbal communication, and now we have social media picture communication. It’s a whole different world of communicating.
One thing to remember when communicating online is: don’t take it personally. Right now people are so bombarded with information, that if they don’t respond, and if they are not engaged with you, it’s probably not personal. They probably just have a lot going on.
So, just remember, be compassionate, continue to try, and if they’re just not interested, they’re just not interested. Some people might not be ready, open, or interested in what it is that you have to offer, but others are.
