Taking a Break From Social Media

For those complaining they can’t wear masks during a global pandemic because they’d rather breathe fresh air, try taking a step away from social media.

I’ve now officially deleted my personal Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. I must say it feels nice. With the spread of misinformation being more substantial than ever before, and people more desperate to stand up for their “beliefs” even when said beliefs put people in danger, it’s perhaps in everyone’s best interest to take a step back.

Even the most well-intentioned can get caught in these currents of distrust. Today, and for the days to come, social media will be treacherous. Consider taking a break. Get to know the real, factual information about our world. Become familiar with your own personal perspectives. Rest. Regroup. Then formulate a response.
