I’m so grateful for my phone. It is my only link to the outside world most days. Sometimes I don’t want to be a part of the outside world, but it is very important for my mental health to know that there are other people that deal with the same issues that I do.
I do not partake in any social media outlets like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat or Twitter anymore because they only bring me down. I choose to limit my interactions to blogging with like minded people and occasionally scrolling through Pinterest. My true friends are not my Facebook friends and it took me a long time to figure that out. I have about 3-5 true friends and I don’t need Facebook to interact with them. We can share pictures and funny memes through text messages.
Technology is a blessing but it can also be a curse. I have learned through the years how to best use it to optimize my life without bringing me down.
