I’m 34 and like most people in my age group, social media has had me in a chokehold. I admit I didn’t know how bad it was till last year when my distraction with my phone came up during a quarterly review meeting. But it got me thinking. How did I get to this level of weakness when it came to social media usage, how is this unhealthy preoccupation sustained and how can I stop it?
The first part was pretty easy to answer. Life and adulting being what they are most of us are forced to live away from family/friends. I think it is the resulting loneliness that comes with the hustle, first and foremost, that births social media addiction.
