I see that meme and I laugh because it’s true. One day I woke up and I basically said fuck it… and that was the greatest day ever. I realized that all the time I spent on social media and on other unimportant trivial bullshit was just a waste of my energy. I realized I have let people linger in my life that bring me uncertainty and anxiety for far too long. I consider myself a strong independent person, but my actions were showing otherwise. Here’s the tea…
Those of you that have been reading the blog know that it is no secret I have been through a significant amount of trauma in the past three years. I lost myself. I was dwelling on past things that I could not change. I was looking for the answers to my problems in all the wrong places.
Countless nights I would sit and scroll my Facebook and Instagram, which was essentially making me feel worse without me fully realizing it.
Recently I have been watching YouTube videos about the harmful effects of social media. There is a big reason most successful people do not have social media.
I have an old friend who doesn’t even put pictures of her children on it because her husband is in the higher up in military intelligence. There is a reason for all of this!
The world, contrary to belief, is descending in consciousness because of technology. Sometimes it isn’t always good to know too much.
Don’t get me wrong I love a funny meme, but someone else may have a different connotation of the meme that you think is funny. It may hurt them.
With that said, as a recovering Facebook/Instagram junkie, I have made three changes that in a short time have made an improvement in my life.
- I put my phones on silent in a drawer or in the living room when I sleep. This has helped my sleeping out tremendously.
- I only post positive things or nothing at all.
- I don’t scroll my news feed. I don’t care what anyone else is doing. I only care what I am doing.
I’m not going to shut down my social media because I love seeing pictures of my niece, but I am definitely cutting back. There is a whole world out there to be explored- I don’t need to look at someone else’s photo’s to explore it.
I know I am breaking a lot of hearts with this news, but dry your tears. You can always come to the blog to read what I have to say! #nowthatsthefuckingtea
Enjoy your weekend & God Bless <3
