EP:45 WHY SOCIAL MEDIA RUINED MY LIFE 

(This video is recorded from a Facebook LIVE session)

 

You have probably heard by now that I’m quitting social media starting Monday.

 

I am both excited and terrified y’all.

 

It’s a HUGE decision for me. And I know that a lot of people think I am crazy. 

But I can’t tell you how many emails I’ve received after I sent out my newsletter of people saying that they were so happy for me. That they’ve been wanting to do the same thing. Y’all have been sharing your stories of how you’ve become more depressed since social media. How it’s ruining your life too. And so I know I’m not the only one.

 

Now today’s show isn’t to make you delete all your accounts. You may decide you want to keep yours up. But I do want to share my experience and offer you some tools to at least think about it in a new way and control how you’re using it so that it can work for you.

 

I’ve been feeling it for a while now.

A disatisfaction in my life.

An overall feeling of overwhelm, insecurity and loneliness.

We’ve lost the ability to be present.

To engage in real life.

 

And so.... here are 5 ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE TO GET YOUR LIFE BACK:

1. Decide your level of addiction

2. Identify your limiting beliefs about social media

3. Admit what you want

4. Commit to a solution

5. Start living your life

 

My hope is that we can go back to living from a place of intuition and instincts.

Trusting what feels right for us without having to be on display or compare ourselves to other people’s lives.

Truly live our own life, feeding our soul in its desires, it’s wants, it’s needs.
