Getting Away From Social Networks
It has been proven that Facebook can have a bad influence on its users, mainly because it motivates feelings of jealousy or sadness. It's not easy to see all of those photos from vacations and fancy dinners our friends post, right?
Lately, that has not been my problem. It is certainly tough to see so many of my friends visiting all these interesting places for sure. But it's even more tough to read so many depressing posts as well.
There's this friend of mine with clear self-esteem problems, whining about being alone and seeing couples all around him. I get it, but stop complaining, shut down your computer and go outside to meet someone new.
Another friend keeps ranting about not having vacations. Dear friend, it has been two years since I had some time off of work and most of my occasional breaks are over the weekend and I never stay far away from home.
I should also mention this acquaintance, with whom I've been twice, that has been constantly complaining about not having a job and living with her parents. I understand times are not easy, but please spend less time posting and more time sending resumés or go write a book. Do something to change instead of complaining!
With all of this, I feel I need to preserve my mental health. This means, staying away from social networks. Except Persona Paper, of course.
What's your status?
