Social Media Detox

I feel like I have been looking at way too many ridiculous posts online and I just can’t deal with the pressure anymore, which kind of made me stay away from being active on some of the social media platforms. (Phew! It feels good, to finally be able to put those feelings down in words)

Social media is a wonderful thing. It gives us the opportunity to connect with friends and family from all over the world. But, why do we let social media take over our lives?

Some of us have no boundaries on what we share online.

I feel as though these people who publicly share their thoughts, feelings and lives to everyone online are living in a fake world. The need to get bogus followers and the most number of likes are becoming extremely mental. It’s an addiction.

A private life is a happy life. The older I get, the more I am able to appreciate the value of privacy.
