Thank you, Kate, for inspiring this.
I feel like I am too attached to social media. I DESPISE drama and I never get involved, but it seems to be a poison that, whether I want it to or not, infiltrates itself into my system. I get so caught up in what’s going on online, when I should be focused on what’s going on OFFLINE. IN REAL LIFE. THE ONE I AM ACTUALLY LIVING IN. So many hours I’ve wasted on this site and others. So many precious hours of my short life.
I want to be a doer. Not a looker. I don’t want to watch people live dreams of mine, I want to go out and do them myself. I can’t do that by sitting on a computer.
My senior psychology research project is on the effects of social media on loneliness and most research I’ve come across shows that there are detrimental effects on loneliness and relationships. My real life social interactions have sometimes suffered because of all my social media use.
So, as Kate has always preached and demonstrated, I’m going to go live my life. To the fullest. No holding back anymore. No more endless hours wasted.
Ain’t nobody got time for that.
