The world is advancing every single day, hour, minute and second. And of course, we have to advance also.
And by advance, I’m talking about social life.
Social media came to improve our social interactions and welfare. And so far, it has been fulfilling that purpose.
But there are somethings that we do and it really affects us. And I’m going to tell you these things based on my own personal experiences.
Number one. ✅
I followed people that aren’t related to my interest or niche, but because of the their lifestyle.
This is one of the many mistakes that most people make. I followed many big and popular personalities who lived an extravagant life. And most times, I found my self esteem diminish.
There are some people that show only the rosy part of their lives and make you feel bad.
I know of a lady who just divorced her husband and the husband ran away with the kids. She then became too depressed and started harming herself.
But this same lady took to Instagram and uploaded pictures of her in her 2019 Lexus and 2019 Mercedes parked beside her. She then uploaded a picture of her in the best restaurant in Dubai.
My point is
Sometimes we follow top people on social media and we forget that these people are also humans and have problems that they are facing.
But most of the time, you see only the better part of their lives being uploaded and think they don’t have any problems at all. You think that maybe their money or fame is solving all their problems.
And by doing this, you carry the wrong mindset. And what’s that?
The mindset that once you get to the peak of your career or life, you won’t have any problems again.
And this is just a plain lie.
Don’t let anyone deceive you. Even when you become so wealthy and famous, challenges is no respecter of your fame or wealth. So you might still battle with some challenges or the other.
So if you must follow that top person on your social media feed, understand that the person might be facing challenges like you and you will not let any of his/her wealth or fame to diminish your self esteem or self evaluation
If social media is more of an harm than blessing to you, it’s okay to quit.
Some people believe that they would be called “idiots” if they openly tell everyone that they are not on any social media. Or not on a famous one.
But it’s not true.
In fact, do you know that if you can take a break from social media and build physical relationships with people, you will even be more happy and contented? Of course!
Like me, I have decided to temporarily quit WhatsApp on my phone. I have also decided to delete my twitter account also.
I figured out that Whatsapp and Twitter are the only two social media platforms that give me more of distractions than benefits.
On WhatsApp, I will spend hours reading status updates and hours on Twitter, reading trending news.
Even though I have almost 500 + daily views on Whatsapp, I still quit it temporarily because I felt I wasn’t getting enough benefits from it.
So right now, I’m focusing on growing my Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
So if a particular platform is giving you problems or just taking away a lot of your time, it’s best to temporarily or permanently quit it.
You don’t have to be on all the social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, YouTube, Snapchat, Tiktok, etc)
Just pick the ones that best fits your needs and you are good to go.
I advise you just pick 3 or 4 platforms. And make sure that you will receive the utmost benefits from these platforms.
The two main points in this article is:
1. if you must follow that top person on your social media feed, understand that the person might be facing challenges like you are. And you will not let any of his/her wealth or fame/ lifestyle to diminish your self esteem and self evaluation and think of your own life as miserable.
2. if a particular social media platform is giving you problems of addictions or just taking away a lot of your time, it’s best to temporarily or permanently quit it, so that you can focus on other important life issues of yours.
Thanks so much for reading ❤️
