- One phenomenon I've noticed about social media, is the desire for couples to post all the wonderful things they are doing... I've never been a big fan of this... I always wonder: who are they really talking to? Are they trying to make someone jealous? Is it an ego thing? I mean, if you are happy, why post... I've never understood this. But, I've seen their posts, and I have judged my current relationships by what I am seeing - not good! With my new girlfriend, I've stayed clear of, well, this silliness, and I'm only judging the relationship by how it makes me feel. This has made an incredible difference!
- Time suck! Social media, although I don't spend a ton of time on Facebook or Instagram, I've noticed that I can waste a few minutes a day running through the site. Well, that time is now used for other things like, READING!
- Frankly, I'd rather not just re-post a bunch of junk, or like a bunch of stupid shit, I'd rather create valuable content (I'll give Instagram a bit of a pass on this one, as some of the pics are really cool). This means, creating more blog posts or videos of value... I'd rather give back to the network, and honor and LIKE content that actually serves the system.
- Oh, and my anxiety level has gone down... More on that later.
