Banana Salad

I don’t know about you, but I wish that 5 hour vacation yesterday from Facebook and Instagram lasted forever. Maybe you feel different and that’s fine, but if you’re reading a post about my breakup with social media I assume there’s some part of you that feels liberated at the idea.
Note: in this post, I’m focusing on just Facebook and Instagram. Personally, I don’t really use Twitter (I have like 4 followers on it I think?) and I find Pinterest to be inspiring and have no qualms with it. I don’t have a snapchat and never have, I hate the TikTok algorithm and addictiveness so have been off that for awhile (and only ever was on it for like 4 months when it first came out.) So my real issues, and therefore the focus of this post are Facebook and Instagram. And while I of course admit there are positive effects of these two platforms, for me the cons far outweigh the pros. Keep reading and see what you think.
At the end of this post you may not be ready to throw in the towel like me, but my hope is that it at least helps you be a bit more mindful and make even ONE change to create a healthier relationship with these platforms for yourself. However if you choose not to change anything, I don’t judge you at all.
