Social media is one of those things that can be really great, and at the same time, the worst invention ever made. It can inundate your brain with too many images, too many opinions, and too many false narratives of people telling you that, “You’re not good enough, you should be this way, or you don’t matter because,” or your only source of validation. It can feed you emotionally, and cause you to feel a certain way, all because a little heart tells you so.
The best way to block out some of the noise caused by social media is to unplug. Turn off your notifications and if you feel so inclined, delete the app. Invest in real communication, real moments of connectedness, and real relationships. Social media doesn’t validate you.
You validate you.
