How social media affects your reality?

Hello everyone, continuing with the Mental Health Awareness Month activities, today we will talk about Social Media and how it affects our reality. 

 My best friend sent me this video yesterday and it is really interesting since I felt identified in the little sketch the creator made in this video, social media has been part of my depression and anxiety. I really believe that must of people insecurities is because of what we seen on social media. 

We have to detox our social media, it’s okay to unfollow, it’s okay to block, it’s okay to uninstall an app. Just do anything you think will do the best for you. Social Media is not going to disappear, but we can control it and manage it responsibly. 

Do you feel identified with the video? Have you tried to stay away from social media? Let’s discuss!

i don't have problem with social media. my daily time on my phone and computer is 2-3 hours 

That's good to know. But some people don't, and it's very hard to get out from there.

I have felt this certain pressure from my social media regarding how I should look, and I have to admit I have not been a mature enough person to ignore that yet. 

Gaga said it herself, "Social Media is the toilet of internet." and frankly enough, even though I love it and unfortunately spend a lot of my time on it, I agree with her. There's a lot of toxicity in it and it changes you as a whole. 

I have been trying to reduce my screen timing, but it gets a bit hard sometimes.

Hi! 
I have to say that it kinda gets me furhter away from reality. Especially stan twitter. like i feel more "connected" thematically with the people on twitter than my irl friends. 

At the same time it gives me extreme mental health issues because the app and some parts of the fandom are sooo toxic... 

I want to leave, but also want to stay cuz there´s some good people on it..

it might be hard to letting all go, but it’s good to have little social media breaks.
