It baffles me a little more than usual to ponder the thought of break ups and the repercussions that come with it. See the bit that gets me the most is that at what point do we become immature little teenagers who bad mouth each other on social media feeds and scorn at the idea of each other to friends?

It’s obviously after a break up that you see a person’s true character in the way in which he/she handles the break up itself. Their maturity…or lack thereof becomes evident in the way they progress in the days to come. What you say and how you say it becomes crucial now more than ever.

Break ups are always messy…if it isn’t then clearly it isn’t over. But does that really mean we have to add to it by taking to social media in an attempt at some sort of ego salvation? Because essentially that is what it is right? Salvation of the ego that has been battered and bruised. A person you claimed to have once upon a time cared about now becomes the subject of your “broken heart” and once words are said, more especially once words are said on social media you can be damn well sure it changes everything.

Over and above the obvious attempt at attention seeking, you don’t exactly affect the person you aim your malicious intent to but rather yourself. What you say and how you say it thus becomes the basis of your character. The person you speak off is not the one who is judged, essentially it’s the person narrating that becomes the object of judgment.

I guess it all comes down to a question of growth, the one thing we can only obtain when we can finally analyze ourselves in an objective light and accept our flaws as well as our perfections.

Tis just a another journey I suppose, a journey of self-discovery essentially …
