Not talking? Post a social media status or something

Yes, the problem when someone does not talk much or say a lot, you find alternative ways to communicate with them. Usually it is through songs and music and not through letters. Who writes long letters these days anyway? Plus, social media has made the untalkative talkative in their own way. However when you post something and someone misinterprets it well then it's another problem altogether. Some people like posting all their dirty laundry on Facebook/Twitter, I tend to unfollow people like that. Negativity and public fights between friends/family/significant other are not nice to read online. Perhaps it is their way of avoiding face to face confrontations but it gets too many people involved. Several years ago, I used to post songs as a message to someone but I don't do that anymore. Also used to post public statuses meant to be read by one person instead of saying it to their face. But then again, what's the use of social media if you don't communicate the things you love or hate right? I've already learned to use social media responsibly. Now I post more about positivity and public service. How about you? Do you still use public posts on your social media accts to send a message to people you can't talk to face to face?

I send messages about my hurt feelings directly to those who hurt me.

@owstalaga ..Actually it is to a person whom I treated like a little sister. Her parents mentally tormented me, and she'd already stopped talking to me ages ago, for something for which I was not responsible. Now, it was my chance to show her how wrong she'd been all along. It is a perverted pleasure sort of. But somewhere underneath lay a hurt that she chose to disconnect and never be in touch with me anymore for something I had never done. Vindication sort of. You know what I am surprised she has not blocked me.

@vandana7 Oh I'm sorry to hear that. Sometimes not being friends anymore with someone is the best thing to happen under certain circumstances. I've also broken up with one or two friends over the years because of our differences that began to grow bigger. I don't regret not being friends with them anymore. Some people are better off gone in our lives after a certain time.

I do have the guts to talk face to face. But how will i do that with friends on another country? Most of my friends are just foreigners than in here.

That's right, it is better to talk to the person instead of involving the world in their issues.

Really? You do? Not that I think about it, I rarely post blog posts in my FB. I also don't combine FB with myLot. But myLot members are free to visit my FB page in my profile here.

Oh I'm quite self-centred, I rarely social media about anyone else other than myself. Hence I rarely say anything on Facebook at all. I also tend to avoid people that pisses me off, both in life 'n' online. Makes life much simpler.

I am more likely to comment if they post than to post directly to them. I like to post on Facebook, but I don't usually say anything personal.

like you said it's best to talk about your problems in private and not to expose them so that your friends would see

Right. But I wish I could just say some things face to face instead.
