I had an unhealthy relationship with social media. I was constantly on my phone checking for the latest roast on my Twitter timeline or flex on Instagram. I couldn’t open a web browser without somehow ending up on Facebook. Once I actually got into Snapchat, it was over. I lived for moments to snap. Snapchat was an open book to my day-to-day life, as were all of my social media accounts. Life became hard. On days when I wasn’t the happiest, I felt a pressure to seem more okay than I actually was. I believed that if I didn’t keep up my current habits, everyone would know that I wasn’t okay. So, I decided to quit social media altogetther. The first week was the hardest. The last time I felt like this was when I gave up meat to become a pescatarian. Not posting on social media is one thing, but it’s another thing to fight the feeling that you need to constantly check for everyone else’s updates.
