Compare and Despair

Click here to read Time.com Why Instagram is the Worst Social Media for Mental Health

Does social media cause you to “Compare and despair” and feel inadequate? Do you struggle with Anxiety, Depression or FOMO (fear of missing out)? I read an article that being on social media can ruin both your sleep and body-image, cause low self esteem and increase one’s sense of loneliness. Is it the same old green-eyed monster of jealousy that’s been around since ancient times or is it something more? I admit that I’m shallow – and I’ve unfollowed people that make me feel that way, but I don’t want to get off social media because I love the connection. How does it make you feel?
