Has Facebook become your worst enemy?

Real Talk:

You need to work on your own happiness. If you find yourself looking at others’ achievements, you are letting them control the way you feel about yourself. Envy removes our understanding that being glad for another’s success and happiness does not affect or weaken our personal accomplishment and contentment.

We are all aware that Facebook causes envy that can lead to depression. Facebook is a social networking site that allows everybody to stay connected with others and to share interesting and important aspects of our lives. However, at this moment I noticed that Facebook is being used to brag about achievements, relationship and financial status. We can also say that, it is one of the causes why we feel dissatisfied with our lives. I also must admit that I was one of these people who became addicted to Facebook since I always post pictures of dates with my boyfriend, at first I don’t mean to brag at all until I realized that this is how I look like to others and this is how others look like to me.

Facebook can be a fun and healthy activity if users take advantage of the site just to keep in-touch with family and old friends and to share interesting and important events in our lives.” But If Facebook posts changes your positive mood into a negative one every day because you can see others’ travel experiences, promotion, happy relationships, and financial status, sometimes even beautiful faces, then I guess you should try not to check your news-feed every now and then. If you can’t control yourself, I think the best thing to do is to delete your Facebook account and stay away from your gadgets for a while until you overcome your insecurities.

So if you use Facebook often but you always compare yourself to others and gives you hurtful feelings then Facebook is not a good idea to stay connected with your friends. It is important for us to be aware that this site has many risks that can give us negative feelings.
