The past several weeks I’ve been unintentionally on social media a lot less than I normally am and it’s been amazing. Ever since the pandemic started, I found myself on social media all the time because it was something to do, and because there was so much being shared about it. Since then, it’s been flooded with other things that are going on, like the elections and social issues. And it was beginning to wear on my mental health.
No matter what the “hot topic” is at the moment, you’re always going to have people who share a different view than you. It’s so easy to get worked up, especially when you feel your view is the “right” one and anyone who feels differently is “wrong”. I found myself being one of those people and it so silly honestly. People are never going to change their views because of something some random person said on Facebook. It’s a waste of so much time and energy to argue, yet we keep doing it.
