#107 Toxic Social

I have been reading.

I found this..

A blog post, called ‘The Toxicity of Social Media,’ by Ted Wickstead on his blog, ‘This is Mental Health’, https://notsomentalhealth.com/2020/08/22/the-toxicity-of-social-media/

This is the last bit..

Social media directly results in the incorrect perception of physical, psychological and social characteristics of others, often resulting in the manifestation of jealously and frustration. If you personally feel like social media contributes towards your own negative feelings, try to take a week away from it, perhaps more. You’ll be surprised by how much better you can feel when you aren’t constantly worrying about what other people are up to.

Seriously.

Yes.

More thinking, lately, about social media but also, ‘fame’ in general. So-called ‘fame,’ that is. For context, see, ‘Look at Me’, over at my other blog, DK.
