How We Can All Change Our Relationship With Social Media
I once had an addiction to social media. Every hour, I’d pick up my phone, scroll through Instagram, like every post. I compared myself: my friends complained about getting 2,000 likes instead of their usual 6,000… but my posts never passed 100 likes. I would put my self-worth in numbers — likes, comments, followers — counting and comparing for hours on end. I’d waste my time admiring someone else’s life, and I couldn’t put down my phone — it was like I was being mind controlled. I’d stay up scrolling…
I looked out through the window, yearning out.
The auburn leaves gently cascading down,
But I’m trapped in here, with the urge to shout.
A wind blows by, a branch falls from the crown.
The sun is shining, smiling at the rose;
Clear skies, green grass, nature sure is quite fair,
Rushing rivers roaring as water flows:
The sound of birds chirping whilst in the air.
However, I’m doomed to solve this assignment,
I’m stuck in this chair, til’ what’s done is done,
Tis’ a shame, as it’s horrid confinement;
How I’d love to joyfully jump and run.

An Emotional Rollercoaster Ride of a Book: The Assassin’s Blade
