They say that it’s best to refrain from blasting your politics & religion at parties to avoid offending people & to get along with everyone. But nowadays, when we have every acquaintance we’ve ever met at our fingertips, it’s easy to blur the line, overshare & not consider the real-world ramifications. Rima has examined this tendency in her life & the lives of her clients, & she opens the conversation up of where to draw boundaries & how to understand the impact of our on-line habits. Many people she’s talked to have been alienated from friends & family because of their beliefs, leading to detrimental outcomes of divided communities in a time where we direly need to come together. We examine: how what we share can divide families & friends apart; our communication styles; how to adapt advice from previous generations to our non-stop technological advances; how to decide who we want to be on-line & in our relationships.
