Social media addiction and choisesmaking
So not a long time ago I realized that I make so many daily choices on the basics of NOTHING, and later it gives the same results. In this post I will reflect on why do I do it.
The reasons I do things now:
- To be cool
- To be beautiful
- To get joy
- To have an aestetic
- To be perfect
- To meet expectations
The reasons I want things to be done:
- To be happy
- To express myself
- To improve myself and to invest in my future
- To build a great community
- To try something new
- To stay healthy and sustainable
Let’s think: why the first reasons don’t make me happy and satisfied with my life? Five of six points are concentrsated on the other prople: be cool — for who?; be beautiful — for who? etc.
It’s time to speak about the number 3. “To get joy”
Have you ever noticed that now you don’t enjoy things that you were supposed to enjoy? I have. This time I’m trying to be happy, but every moment that was supposed to be magical, becomes usual. I don’t feel magic anymore, all I can do — to fake.
What is the cause of it and how to go back to “normal life”?
Yesterday a youtube-video told me that the reason is…………SOCIAL MEDIA. Babaaam
When I heard that, it just didn’t make sense. I kept scrolling Pinterest and Instagram, moreover, I wanted to start posting something again. It was 15 minutes ago, when I realized that I don’t engoy it. I simply scroll, and want more and more and more visual content. It is addiction.
What am I going to do?
If I say that I will delete SM, I will lie. I simply can’t do it, because it is how I keep in touch with my friends (i mean dms, not stories and posts).
The way I found for myself — to replace them with something, that has the same nature, but that won’t f*ck my brain every day. So I will keep only insta, but only for dms. I’ll try to found some way to hide stories and the feed.
Pinterest scrolling = Looking on real people on the streets
Tik Tok = Dancing (real dance!)
Instagram = 1SE (a program where you have to make 1 photo every single day) + this blog❤
It is going to be hard, I know, but it defiinitely worth it. The only thing I’m still in — telegram. I follow a bunch of channels, that help me stay motivated and inspired.
I am not sure what results will I have and how soon, but I will write about them in this blog.
Thank you for reading,
Have a nice day!:)
