Lately, I’ve been thinking about social media and its effect on my mental health, so here is a short ranting post.
The other day I was going through my Instagram stories and I saw a story that made me sad. And I thought to myself, “Why am I following this account? It’s not doing me any good. It just makes me unhappy.” That’s when I came to this realization. I can choose who I follow and don’t follow
The truth is you don’t owe anyone a follow on social media. If someone’s account makes you feel bad about yourself or if it makes you jealous of them, you should unfollow. If it’s causing you to think poorly of that person, unfollow. Social media is supposed to be fun. It’s supposed to be a way for us to stay in touch with our friends and family. I love Instagram. It’s very fun to me, and I don’t think I’ll be signing off anytime soon. I will; however, not be afraid to unfollow any accounts that don’t make me feel good, and you shouldn’t be either!
