Over the past few months, my own outlook on the wide use of social media has grown dim. I have gotten to the point where I believe the saturation and over-use of social media is actually bad for your mental health. It’s impossible to have a real conversation. People automatically assume the worse intentions and read meaning into your text that isn’t there. Jealousy and bitterness of fake picture-perfect lives takes root in innocent hearts. There are still some upsides, but the list of downsides keeps growing longer.
