Before going to college, I didn’t know what an Instagram meant or for that matter how a selfie is taken.
The sudden information boom & an attempt to fit in turned the layman in me to an addict and later a narcissist. I was too stupid to realize how the unprofessional use of social media was making me stupider and unsociable!! I started seeing places in the lens of my camera rather than the lens of my eyes.. I never thought there was anything wrong when someone posts some 50 selfies of the same function in the same angle..!!!
But everything changed when one day I decided to pick up the book (my old hobby) instead of the Facebook…reality struck me hard for the better… that’s when I understood that the dopamine was playing a nasty trick on me (the like 👍syndrome)
I realized my craziness and decided to remove my digital footprint (all those photos with a pretentious smile) and stopped checking status updates.
And then there was no comparisons,no more bragging,no more bothering about what your ‘friends’ were upto and more and more peace and satisfaction ❤.
As my mom says, maturity is when you respect your privacy and stop sharing everything you do on social media.!! I now know she was right❣
