  1. Great post! I’ve been thinking of doing a post on how I find balance with social media because I’ve come to realise many of the same things. It’s definitely not easy and breaks are so helpful and necessary sometimes.

    1. thank you! I think that post will be great! definitely think breaks are necessary

  2. I’ve been battling with social media because of the influences and having pity parties for myself, highly considering closing all my personal accounts. This post strikes a chord because it’s how we choose to use social media that will have an impact. Thanks for putting into words what we think…great post!

    1. I hope this has helped you and I’m sure you will figure out what’s best for you. Thank you for reading

  3. Reblogged this on Unswayed Beauty and commented:
    This post truly struck a nerve! A good read and a great point.

    1. thank you so much for reblogging. I’m glad you enjoyed it

  4. Really enjoyed reading this, because I too can relate (I think most people can). Thank you for sharing.

  5. What a thought provoking post, Dhanusha, especially when you referred to social media as a platform for spreading lust for things and experiences that you don’t have. I think if we practice gratitude, these things can be overcome. But gratitude comes from introspection and not looking at what other people have.

    1. Thank you so much. You are right! Gratitude is the only way to not compare.

  6. Thanks for reading Aisha, glad you enjoyed it

  7. I was thinking about this a few days ago….how I’m glad this isn’t the norm for me…that I grew up in the time before social media. I’d be a mess if I thought everybody’s lives looked like this daily. Facebook was genuinely a place you logged on to to see who got married. Who has babies. Then it morphed and became this…. Oh look…my life is so fantastic.
    Now it’s memes and jabs at people. Lol. It’s always evolving.
    The one thing I do ‘envy’ are the holidays though… especially when I’m struggling to pay the bills while hubby is unemployed. Lol.
    You’re so right about the lust aspect…which is why I state in my haul posts…. that this isn’t normal. I hate doing them, but of course I have to. I don’t even like to show PR all that often.
    Good post!

    1. Thank you. Yeah it’s a whole new world and I’m guilty as well. I also am not a fan of unboxing really but sometimes I don’t get to write a blog post so atleast they see what I’m ttesting so if I do mention it on social media people know what I’m talking about. Yeah I can’t really do hauls etc but I have stopped spending as much as I did on make up
