SOCIAL MEDIA ‘RANT’ (2/3) | REASONS TO QUIT SOCIAL MEDIA

I have this huge urge to quit social media for good. Don’t get me wrong I love it because you get to share your thoughts and be updated about everything, you can find anything in it but there are these several reasons that make me want to get off social media.


1. Self-righteous people
– I know social media is a great way to express your opinion and thoughts but there are just people who are just too much. You are free to share what you want so there is a huge chance that some people’s opinion contradicts yours but you don’t have to force them to see the world through your eyes, that is not your obligation and you don’t need to prove something. Some people think they know too much that they think they are always right. If it’s something that you think you really need to meddle in then say it in a way that you wont hurt their dignity, for short just be RESPECTFUL and also be mindful that your opinion has the possibility of being wrong. 

 
2. Judgmental hypocrites
– I stopped voicing out my opinion on certain issues when I found my words contradicted my actions, that’s when I started keeping in check with my acts before saying things. And now I just let out a *pfft* when I see posts/tweets from someone that I know that does not really believe in what he/she says on social media. There are some who posts about kindness but in reality they’re the most judgmental person you’ll ever meet. That is why do not be deceive from their social media posts, some of them are just faking it. Don’t post it, do it.

 
3. Just mean people
– the trolls are the worst in social media, they notice and find every single mistake in a person or in everything and it makes me think how does a person have so much time to hate on someone? Why do they invest even just a single second to hate? How do they find satisfaction from it? 

 
4. Opinionated people
– This reason is a bit shallow and I don’t really care that much but just to fill up this list lol. There are some people who are just too opinionated like they have a comment on every single issue. I know it’s not wrong to voice out your opinion but there are some who posts things just for the sake of having something to say.

 
5. Everything is a joke
– the internet is turning into a big comedic central with all the memes, fake news, sarcasm, and other stuff. They even turn a serious issue into a joke just to get likes and to get attention.

That are just some of my reasons to quit social media and notice how my reasons are mainly because of the people in it? Yes, I think I can summarize this into “Reason To Quit Social Media: People Using Social Media”. I think most of us are using it in a wrong way, (I’m not excluding myself because I’m guilty too) we should stick to using it as a self-expression and be respectful towards others. Well, I’m not quitting social media anytime soon because I’m a millennial (unfortunately) social media is our fuel and being in a country where it is a “necessity” to have one; we use it for school and work and right now all I can do is to limit my usage of it. 
 
There’s so much negativity in social media nowadays and I think the more you open up yourself to those negatives, the more it messes you up. And you need to preserve your wellness even if it means of disconnecting yourself from the “world”.

Social Media ‘Rant’ (1/3) | Do You Know Who You Are?


THIS IS 2/3 OF MY “RANTS” ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA. I FOUND MYSELF WRITING ABOUT THE “TOXICITY” OF IT SO PLEASE BEAR WITH ME ON THIS AND ON MY VIEWS ABOUT IT AND IF WE DON’T HAVE THE SAME VIEW ABOUT IT, PLEASE DON’T HATE ME LOL.

  1. I’ve come off facebook and it was one of the best things I did. Now I only have my blog and it’s associated intsagram and twitter both of which are anonymous and don’t have anyone I know on them. I find it’s really empowering. You don’t find yourself subconsciously comparing your life to others and trying to live to their expectations. Couldn’t recommend it enough! Great read!

    • I think it’s really much peaceful when you turn yourself away from all of it, you know? And I get exactly what you’re saying about comparing your life to others like it bums you out when they’re like having a great summer and you’re like just staying in your house. Anyway, thank you for taking time to read it 😊

  2. Sometimes on social media you learn more about your friends than you really wanted to know. There were several times when someone who is kind to our autistic son’s face, but posted memes that say we should “kill the retards so they don’t pollute the gene pool”

    • For real?! That’s not even funny at all, don’t they know that people with autism are one of the smartest people? That person who said that is just sick. 😑

      • The person who posted it said that it’s what’s best for the human race. She’s saving the world or something. 😔 Ten of my friends liked the post which is just as disturbing. I know that there are some hateful people out there, but I didn’t realize that I actually knew them until I saw it on FB.

      • You sure they’re really your friends? 😑 and she’s saving the world from them? She should save the world from herself and her likes (sorry) 😑 I have a friend who’s autistic he’s very sweet and funny. I also have a friend who’s an educator for autistic kids so I’m not really liking this ‘friend’ of yours (sorry) 😅😑✌🏼

      • No, they were more like acquaintances. I meant they were friends of mine on Facebook. I obviously didn’t know them that well so I doubt I would have ever notice their ignorance if they weren’t spewing it out on Facebook. It’s weird that people on social media can get so nasty. Do they feel a disconnect because they are behind a computer screen? They are the one’s who are missing out because my son and his classmates are awesome. Autism spectrum disorder people see things in a different way that is so much more creative than the “normal” kids.

      • I thought they’re your friends. Maybe the electromagnetic waves or radiation from their screens are getting into them making them say those stuff. Your son is awesome, never listen to those kind of people 😊. x

  3. I often feel the pull to quit my personal social media accounts. I like having a Facebook page and a twitter feed for my blog, but my personal Facebook is sometimes over whelming and so negative and a time suck that I want to get rid of it. I’ve started to limit what I post on it, and for the past little bit it’s just a sharing page for my Instagram (thanks for adding me btw!) but I have so many friends on there that I don’t have contact with other wise, so I have to keep it….

  4. I was thinking of quitting too a few years ago. What stopped me from quitting was filtering the persons who I want to be part of my life and those who are toxic. Block, restrict, unfriend, unfollow…That’s why I never get offended when someone does the same. Kanya kanyang trip lang yan. Respect na lang para walang away, walang katoxican.
