Hello, my happy bloggers….hope everyone is doing well!!….
In my opinion “yes” It can destroy a person’s well-being..and their state of mind… twitter, instagram, facebook, pinterest, etc…can be the actual key.. using social media obsessively causes more than just anxiety . In fact, it has been found that using too much internet can cause depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ADHA….impulsive disorder, problems with mental functioning, paranoia, and loneliness..
How Social Media Is Bad For You….
1, Depression and anxiety….
Do you spend more than two hours per day on social media? Spending too long on social networking sites could be adversely affecting your mood. In fact, you’re more likely to report mental health, including symptoms of anxiety and depression..
Before social media, bullying was done face-to-face. However, now, someone can be bullied online anonymously, Today everyone knows what cyberbulling is, and most of us have seen what it can do to a person. And since screens hide our faces, you can end up being a jerk on social media and other websites without realising it.
While social media made making friends easier, it also made it easier for predators to find victims. The anonymity that social networks provide can be used by the perpetrators to gain people’s trust and terrorize them in front of their peer’s…
3, Fear of missing out.
This fear is constantly fueled by your social media engagement. The more you use social networks, the more likely you are to see someone is having more fun than you are right now. And that’s exactly what causes fear of missing out….
4, Unrealistic Expectations.
This one probably comes as no surprise, but social media helps you to form unrealistic expectations of life and friendships. The networks that do it most are Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. Those are the social media platforms that severely lack online authenticity.
One simple way out of this is for everyone to quit lying on social media. But in the era of Instagram celebrities and YouTubers who earn millions, that isn’t going to happen anytime soon.
5. Negative Body Image
Speaking of Instagram celebrities, if you look at popular Instagram accounts, you’ll find beautiful people wearing expensive clothes on their perfect bodies.
Today, body image is an issue for many people of both sexes. Of course, seeing those perfect in accordance with the society standards people on a daily basis makes you conscious about how different you look from those pictures. And not everyone comes to the right conclusions in this situation.
6. Unhealthy Sleep Patterns
On top of increased rates of anxiety and depression, spending too much time on social media can lead to poor sleep. Numerous studies have shown that increased use of social media has a negative effect on your sleep quality.
If you feel like your sleep patterns have become irregular and that this is affecting your productivity, try and avoid spending a significant amount of time on social media.
7. General Addiction
Social media is often described as being more addictive than cigarettes and alcohol, with the worst social media apps being Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok when it comes to addiction.
Don’t know if you’re addicted to your social networks? Think when was the last time you went a full day without checking your social media accounts? Do you feel rejected if someone unfollows you? What if your favourite social networks completely disappeared tomorrow; would it make you feel empty and depressed?Unfriended or Unfollowed? How to Handle Rejection on Social Media Unfriended or Unfollowed? How to Handle Rejection on Social MediaIt sucks when someone unfriends or unfollows you. Here’s what you can do when you face social media rejection.
Social media is a place where people make new friends. But for some, it’s also the place where people leave old friends.
Being unfriended or unfollowed by someone feels horrible. And while most social media platforms won’t inform you when someone leaves you, you might find out anyway when you notice no recent activity from them. They just dumped you like that—without any goodbyes, broken up on social media.
Here are some things you can do when you face social media rejection…..
If you just realised you’re addicted to social media, don’t worry, as most of us are there with you in varying degrees. And it’s not necessarily a reason to go and wipe yourself off all those social networking platforms.
However, if you think quitting is the best solution for you, I won’t stop you. In fact, one of my friends I helped… tried quitting social media once, and it was an interesting experience… She said it saved her life….
I’m In a Very Happy Place Right Now…And I Love Positive Sites That Have A Good Positive Attitude…So Thank You…!!!
I believe that we can look at social media differently…. we can look at reality, our life live it to the fullest of expectations, and not others expectations.. of how they look or how they dress…such as the celebrity world…and others who have the happiest lives they are living because we can do exactly the same…take a look a real life, the positive’s and meaningful words of happiness, outings, travelling, fun with friends, working to pursue a career….you want…and ingnore negativity!!!!
I mean every word my pals…
