Social Media Obsessed

Dear Awoken Magazine,

My parents and friends say I'm too obsessed with social media. I do tend to spend too many hours pondering over the right lighting, the perfect captions, and how many likes my photo will attract. Am I too obsessed with social media after all?


Dear _Socialfanatic,

Now I love social media just as much as the next girl or boy does, but there does come a time where enough is enough. Social media can distract us from what's truly important our actual life. Shocking isn't it?

Your family and friends probably feel like you're cutting them off. Social media does tend to do that to us. So I suggest taking a break from the bright screens and have some and R and R time with the people you really love.

If you find yourself obsessing too much over your captions- don't stress we've all been there. I advise taking a break from all the stress and shutting out the social media for a day. You'll find that you have so much more time to do other things. I once shut out social media for a week, and took up coding instead! You never know how you can amaze yourself by trying new things.

In the end remember, social media sure is great, but your self-worth is greater. Never measure yourself by the amount of likes you get or retaking that shot in the perfect light. You're awesome just the way you are.
