Social Media has become an integral part of life; I cannot even fathom the amount of time that gets spent on the various platforms each day. With social media, you are connected to more people than you ever would’ve been in the past. It can also open many doors for career opportunities.

Of course, much like everything else in life, moderation is key regarding social media usage. Too much can impact your overall mental health. There have even been instances where individuals have dealt with withdrawal issues when they haven’t been able to access their favourite platform.

In this post, I will be sharing the ways that social media has impacted my mental state in the past.

Yet Another Update Post

Social Media: How It Has Been Affecting My Life

It’s no secret I haven’t been feeling great as of late, my mental health has been up and down for as long as I can remember. It has gotten out of control now. It’s affecting what I do and how I function. Social media and my addiction to an easy dopamine fix, or the need to trawl through people’s pages, accounts, or whatever to compare myself to them, or to just pass judgment has got to stop now.

I take my phone to bed. I look at it when I wake up. I would rather scroll through apps than do my housework, I compare myself to someone on my friends list who seems to have their life together. None of this is any good for me. There were points in my life where I barely even touched my phone! I could leave it in my bag, or leave it untouched and it wouldn’t bother me. Now I feel like I’m missing something! How is that living?
