It may be time to evaluate your social media usage, as it is not only impacting our lives, it is also affecting our mental health. Social media is a gateway to many harmful behaviors. We use it to stay connected, interact with others, and find new hobbies and interests. By doing so, we are creating and reinforcing the negative thoughts, feelings, and behavior that led to our mental distress.
The good news is that there are many things that can be done to make it more productive to use social media responsibly. It can be used for good. For example, if you use your social media accounts for gaming or looking at porn, you may be able to avoid the negative consequences like depression and suicide. There are also many ways to get out of the habit of using social media, and it is not all bad.
When I was growing up, I used to spend a lot of time looking at porn and gaming. I was told that I didn’t play well with others. Instead, I was just a bad person. I was told I should spend more time with my family. I was told I was lazy and that I should be a good husband and father. I was told I should spend all my time with gaming and porn instead of my family.

As a child, you are taught to be good, obedient, and good-looking, but your real self is hiding in the shadows, constantly judging, and trying to sabotage your good behaviors. It’s no wonder that you feel depressed and anxious when the world doesn’t agree with you.
Social media is one of the most damaging things we have to deal with in life. I know of some people who spend hours every day browsing through all of the wrong Facebook porn, posting racist, sexist, and violent messages, or even simply going on and on in their profiles about how much they enjoy killing people. Unfortunately, these people are often the ones who end up killing themselves as a result of their online behavior.
I have a friend who has an online relationship with the most horrible person on the planet. She is literally a psychopath. This is not a joke.
You may be surprised to hear that social media can be toxic for your mental health. In fact, social media is the leading cause of suicide in the U.S. and internationally. I find it hard to believe that some people who do not experience “emotional pain” would be using Facebook to hurt themselves or others. However, it is true that users of social media are more likely to experience mood changes like depression, anxiety, and insomnia.
There are numerous studies that prove that the longer you spend on social media, the worse your mental health becomes. But social media definitely has a negative effect on your mental health, especially when it comes to depression and anxiety.
This is a tough one. I don’t want to say that social media is a bad thing, because some of the time it is a good thing, but I do think that social media is a bad thing when you are being used to “get” a certain person. It can be hard to distinguish this from someone who is stalking you online, just because you know they like to send you private pictures of themselves.
