Some people refuse to realize the consequences of social media (SM) on them.
The fact that they never experienced anxiety or depression before SM says something.
Social media amplifies this anxiety because they WANT you to be engaged in the public defense of your ideas or the attacking of others. Never before have you been able to engage in a nonstop constant public defense of your egoic stories. Your ego secretly loves it and feeds off it, starving you of mindfulness. You can help but be sucked in to the deep, dank dark rabbit hole of it.
Please notice, before social media came along, you didn’t have this particular type of suffering in your life. It’s manufactured, amplified, shoved in your face and presented to you on a screen all day long.
Some experts advise taking tiny steps… aim low… and try to engage a little less every day in the public defense of yourself.
If you lack the self-control to regulate yourself and can’t stop engaging. I say delete the shit. End your weakness. Save yourself.
