Social media has taken over if you haven’t noticed. Everything that everyone does, every day, every second, every moment, is on there. Pulling out a cellphone and capturing events is almost like second nature to most people now. Social media’s influence is something that is here to stay, and there are some good and bad
things that have come with that.
We can just go ahead and start off with some of the cons, because who wants to end off on a negative note right? Let’s dive in, and warning; this might get a little deep.
Confusion of Self Worth
I see comments all the time on Instagram that say “This girl thinks she cute with only 56 followers” or, people’s cation will read things like “Post and delete if 1000 y’all don’t like it.” It scares me. It makes me wonder why people are so wrapped up in likes. You can spend so much time on social media, that you will start to put your value there and let people, strangers most of the time, determine how much you are worth. How attractive you are. How successful you are. How funny or smart you are. How stylish you are. When you have the mindset that you are not enough, you circulate negative thoughts in your mind. When you circulate negative thoughts, negative energies are manifested in your reality. Be sure to follow people only on the internet, kind of like a game, and when you’re not online, you’re in your world. Your reality.
