Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc are some channels we all are familiar with and are using these to quite an extent. But on days we find that some of the posts have us getting affected by them. This is a negative factor which comes to light while using social media. We should be careful and not depend on it for everything.
There are some ways in which you can make sure that social media is used for the purpose it was meant to be- “to connect and learn”. Follow these simple steps to avoid getting your time ruined by social media.
How to stop social media from ruining your life - Know that not everything is true
We have seen people posting pictures and showing all the fun they are currently having in their life. This made me think that all is not always good. There are ups and downs which are a part of everybody’s life. So don’t believe everything people post on their social handles.
Nobody is perfect
This is an over-rated phrase but is so true. Everybody has positives and well as negatives, its just matters what we want to focus on. Many people are good with interaction and building relationships while others are more detail-oriented and observe things. Both are good in their own way. So know that what you see and assume to be perfect, isn’t.
The most common mistake which makes us suck the fun out of our own lives is that we compare. This is how we are raised. But it can be avoided by knowing our own worth. Comparison never helped. There is a fine line between comparison and taking inspiration and doing things. Know the difference.
Social media is a platform which just entangles you and you are not able to get out of it. Stop scrolling through your Facebook feed it won’t add value to your life. It is a total waste of time waste. Deep inside you know this fact but whenever you find yourself getting too engrossed in the scrolling procedure we say take a pause and remind yourself about the pending tasks which need your immediate attention.
After comparison next step Is envy. Jealousy and envy degrade your thought process. It builds up a negative aura around you and sooner or later people realise this fact about you and in exchange you start attracting more people towards you.
Stay away from negativity and focus on yourself. Build up a skill.
Take a hint
After a while and we have spent some time on Instagram we start noticing that posts are getting repeated. This is a sign that you should immediately withdraw and stop scrolling further. This is something which takes too much of your time.
Don't get involved in negative comments
Trolling is a part of today’s world. People find it very easy to comment on someone’s post and say mean things about them. Stay away from such behaviour. Don’t post and don’t read such content. Instead read blogs which are of your interest.
Haters gonna hate
Last but not least remember that haters are gonna hate. You should focus on living your life to the fullest. Spend your time and energy on people who matter to you the most and the world will be a beautiful place.
So these are some ways through which you can avoid getting sucked into the vicious circle of social media. Connecting is necessary but not getting stuck into it.
