March 29, 2018 was the day I left some of my old habits behind.
I decided to delete all of my social media except my blog and youtube account. I wanted to have a fresh start and I am happy to say that I made it. I made it through those tough days of constantly checking my phone when it was just turning into a deep habit. I think I enjoyed life more and did more activities when I stayed away from my phone. Ironically, I had to get a new phone while on this journey because my older phone was just driving me insane. But, back to the main point of this wonderful post: I survived deleting all social media.
Social media was taking over my life and it clicked to me that it was really a waste of time for my daily life. I would automatically wake up and look at my phone for instagram likes and other gossip. I don't even like gossip but with social media you seem to care more about other people's lives as if it is a reality show which was and still is dumb to me. I think social media can be used for good when it comes to business, connecting with others through bookclubs and other unique ways but most of the time it makes people compare their lives or paths which isn't healthy.
I think I was overanalyzing more of who I was because of how social media just slowly starts to take over your everyday thoughts. Social media was created for a reason but it also became a big part of our lives in a negative way. Let's just say, I am glad that I left that part of my life behind. In the future I am not sure if I will gain a new Instagram because of future businesses I plan on doing. But, as of right now.. I don't plan on getting back on that band wagon.
