Such an interesting chapter!! This resonated with me so much.
I feel I have definitely fallen into the trap of my phone almost becoming my enemy. A slave to social media, feelings of not being good enough, being judged etc...
I sometimes miss the days where we didn’t know what was going on in people’s lives, we were carefree and conversations with our friends were curbed to an hour usually after tea being sat on the stairs in the hallway with the corded telephone shutting every door and telling your parents not to listen cause it was ‘private’
My mind has become so clouded by my phone lately that I’ve just wanted to switch off more. Don’t get me wrong I love social media... hello..I’m on it right now, but I’m finding that I’ve become really despondant to it, I don’t want to be glued to my phone. I’m trying to limit myself to an hour or so in the morning, a tiny bit at lunchtime although most lunches I will be found watching Grace & Frankie, a tiny bit on the train home although lately it’s been more a case of me falling asleep on the train (I’m going to end up in Exeter one night) and of an evening I’m trying to limit myself as much as possible. I love social media but it’s like a double edged sword and I’m learning to know my limits. It’s about finding that balance of engaging and actually living a life. After work I’m usually knackered and then there is everyday household stuff, studying and spending time with the family. It’s like I don’t have enough hours in the day. I miss so much stuff online, I can sometime take ages to reply to messages, a lot of the time I’m not in the loop of what’s happening or in the know of the latest trend or campaign but, y’know what, that’s ok because ultimately by switching off it’s making me a calmer and happier person and that’s the best feeling. What are your thoughts on finding a social media balance? 🌈
