I was chatting with a friend about social media use recently. I told them how I’ve been careful with how I use it for the past few years because it used to have a negative impact on my mental health.
My friend argued how most of us have unhealthy relationships with our phones, social media and technology. There is no right or wrong answer on how to use them. An unhealthy relationship and overuse seems to be the ‘norm’ – it’s only when it’s very bad that it’s talked about.
I’m trying to be cautious about how I use it because I’m trying to use platforms to share my writing, but I don’t want it to have the negative impact is used to on me.
How would describe the relationship you have with social media?
P.S. Shoutout to Dom for inspiring this one.
