My Simple Life Became Complicated Because Of Social Media

Ever considered waking up without the thought of your phone, no social media, messages and calls. No going to work, school or visiting the park; just you and your pet. That's the type of life, I lived two years ago, I had to distance myself from social media, that is why, Until now I still haven't gotten an account on Instagram, Facebook and recently opened a telegram account. Am not really the type of person that wants everyone to know about the happenings in my life, and so I noticed at the whole trend of fashion craze, low self exteem and inadequacy.

Though not a regular user of social media but the menace that this stuffs caused, make us realize). Most chances are spent on the phone either online or offline. One day a fight occured with my neighbour, my version of the fight was in favor of me. I know you are wondering why I fought, she tried to open my messages without my permission, which got me angry and I fought. I had no profile picture which made it difficult for people to identify me, whereas my friends where always uploading new pictures and videos. I always wanted to do same, but my love for privacy will not allow me.

All these were done outside the urban busy life, I was just okay staying with my grandmother in her little house, far from the busy life of the urban dwellers. All I wanted was just tranquility, privacy and adequacy, so growing up with her , shortly after the death of my grandpa wasn't a big deal. So you see why I was never interested in social media or even owning a phone.

I still remember being satisfied with my little rural job of managing a poultry farm for a family friend, and how much I treasured the job, making use of my earnings for food and few clothing, but my introduction to social media placed me in a competition against the world, I felt not good enough and my earnings were just too small. A trait I never possessed from the beginning .

I preoccupied my mind with being the best and living for the fame, never stopped to ask myself if that was really the kind of lifestyle I wanted, or how helpful will my supposed lifestyle be to others ? I was just being insecure, without asking myself what I really wanted.

Few months ago, I was introduced into this platform from a friend on telegram, she talked alot about the site and so, I decided to give it a trial. And I must confess, it is the best thing that has happened to me, maybe because everyone is busy trying to be useful to others and no time for display of wealth like in other social media.

We don't have control of everything around us, but within ourselves have the capabilities to take good control all over social media. I'm also grateful to know this platform through my sister-in-law.

One should never read anyone's personal messages. Because it's very non sense behaviour. We must forbid others to do this.

Dear Wrinkle, I totally agree with you. Going on social media gives us a sense of competition and insecurity. I sometimes wish I was not a member of any of the social medias...

But then you will be devoid of some privilege like being on this great site

You can always find positive things on social media depending on what you do on your social media handles. There are even a lot of earning sites that we are yet to hear but we'll get there as time goes on. We just widen our social media use

We don't have control over other people. But we can control how to act and react. It's okay to keep a private life. Anyway, this is our life and we can live it the way we want it.

Me too I live a simple life in the mountain near to nature before but now we are now living in a crowded place and social media is so common. Upon seeing post of our friends sometimes we felt pity on ourselves for having the same with them but still I am grateful for what i have.

Social media depends more on how you use it. If you use it positively it would definitely work well for you. Good thing you found one that you can relate very well with

This platform has a big difference with Facebook and other sites, we don't just post here with what is trends but we post with sense and based on our effort to create a useful blogs. I find it here such a comfort virtual world, a place to learn and have some unique virtual connection.

How much you avoid social media, but it will always be hunting you and you have no choice but to use it once in a while. I like private life too, but when read cash entered my life. I started to share my life with y'all.

I too love my privacy than exposing everything. Indeed social media is really helpful which push us to know everything about the world but on the other side it has lots of side effects this is why I love to live far away from social media because I love my mental peace more than anything.

Trying to keep up with the people on social media will only drive us nuts! There will always be people "better" than us. It will be a never-ending catching up. So don't bother :) A private life doesn't mean a boring life :) Cheers!
