The truth is that the only approval you have ever needed is from yourself. You are not better or worse for your online following. You should never compare yourself to anyone, especially those you’ve never met.
What would happen if one day you just disconnected, if you pulled the plug on your social media? What would I miss if I wasn’t on social media? What would change? This is something I had to ask myself before I made the sudden choice to just not exist online.
Social media is not at all a cure, we shouldn’t self diagnose and we need to limit the time that we do spend online. However, it can prove an aid for the people who need some additional help and support while they are waiting for the professionals.
