Are You A Whore For Social Media?

Are you a Whore for Social Media?

I’m a whore.

You’re a whore.

We’re all whores.

Let’s be honest, You’re a whore for social media. Admit it, social media has a lot of you wrapped around its toxic fingers.

Now don’t get me wrong, Social media has connected long lost families, granted many jobs, and connected thousands and thousands of people. But it has also weak-end the self-esteem and self-image of thousands and thousands of people.

SOCIAL MEDIA IS A WORLD OF VALIDATION.

It’s an escape. You might as well do cocaine. Okay too far, But social media has this way of making you crave it. It has conditioned the world to depend on it, to check it daily, & to crave it daily.

Social media is actually a pimp. But why has this happened? Why IS this happening?

Social Media has the power to set off receptors in your brain that releases Dopamine (A neurotransmitter that plays a role in reward-motivated behaviors)

Your brain LOVES when you receive positive rewarding social stimuli, and wants more of it. The likes, Retweets, the heart eyes, the fire emojis, the laughing faces. People eat that shit up.

The over use of social media has a direct correlation to the decrease in an average person’s mental health. It’s that deep. Your brain becomes so exhausted from processing so many people, conversations and images.

It takes it all in and can’t decide what to give it’s energy to, it can’t differentiate from what’s important and what’s not. It becomes completely, well distressed.

After taking in so many images, and conversations, you begin to think that you should be slimmer, thicker, richer, more social, more attractive and own a six figure business.

But

It’s time to gain our self-control back. Build our self-esteem off of social media. Take a look at yourself.

  1. How often are you using social media?
  2. When is the last time you spent some time alone with just you and your thoughts?
  3. How are you spending your time?

We have to know how to use social media instead of it using us. Social media is changing how we see ourselves and how we see each other.

But all in all social media is making us:

1. Question our appearances.

2. Question our life alignment.

The effects of social media are HEAVY, REAL HEAVY. I mean so heavy.

Relationships aren’t the same. Women want their men to post them or the relationship isn’t valid. We want our friends to quickly respond to us or the relationships aren’t valid.

Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram are cashing in on our consumption of social media. They want us to log on. They want us addicted. They want us searching for validation.

Don’t feed into this and create a false image of yourself. These apps aren’t for us, they’re for themselves. Protect your mind.

The overuse of social media can lead to:

•anxiety

•depression

•unrealistic expectations

•fear of missing out

The fear of missing out is the number ONE negative effect of social media. You see people partying, getting loved and having fun! And you WANT TO FEEL THAT. You begin to think negatively of yourself,

Maybe it’s time to take a break from social media or use it in moderation. We have to take responsibility for how much of social media we are consuming.

It’s a distraction.

You haven’t gotten shit done because you be on that damn phone. If social media is getting in the way of you completing tasks and halting your productivity, you need help.

  • If social is inferring with your relationships, you need help.
  • If social media is making you question your appearance, you need help.
  • If checking social media is how you start your day, you need help.
  • You need help beloved.

And if no one else will tell you, I will.

Can we pledge to make more of our time?

Let’s have some accountability here.

Set limits with social media.

  1. Try setting alarms when to get off of social media. Set hourly limits. Use your screen time on your phone, monitor your usage.
  2. Try replacing social media with reading, movies etc
  3. Clean up your timelines, get rid of negative profiles. Follow positivity.
  4. Try calling your mom. You ever tried that?
  5. Try being present.
  6. Go have some human connections, laugh with your friends, go masturbate!

That’s right, Release.

Go do something, but don’t let social media do you.

Never forget that your brain and mind are being altered every time you spend an extended time on social media.

The overuse is overkill.

Put your phone down, it’s okay.

Don’t be a whore for social media.

Control what you consume. Moderation is key.

Start your day off with your intentions and your priorities, not with Instagram likes and Twitter retweets.

Remember that validation is never needed.

Go outside. Go play. Go hoe.

Go cheat on your boyfriend.

Just do it.

Be accountable.

You know when too much is too much. What you give your attention to is who you become. Stop letting social media pimp you out of your self-image. And never believe the hype.

Okay,

Now let me go see how many likes I got on my last Instagram post.

Bye

See you in 2020
