Some of you may know this about me already, but if you don’t, you’ll learn something new. I have a bit of an aversion to social media. A "some-what-like-mostly-strongly-dislike" relationship with it.
This is not a post about whether or not you should use social media. There are SO many fantastic benefits of it, and everyone uses it and relates to it differently.
This is a post about some things to keep in mind when using social media.
Here’s what my thoughts about social media boil down to:
Connecting broadly is meaningless unless we connect deeply.
Yes, social media helps us be in touch with people we would otherwise never be in touch with.
Yes, it helps us “connect” to the big world out there.
But think about this;
How deeply are you connecting with people?
And I’m not even talking about your social media ‘friends.’ Look at the people in your life right now and ask yourself that question.
We have a deep-seated human need for connection, and social media is a cover-up for feeling like we’re meeting that need.
So if you ever wasted a bunch of time on social media (me!) and then felt empty (me again!) remind yourself that:
Connecting broadly is meaningless unless we connect deeply. How can I connect deeply with someone now?
It’s exactly for this reason that I call my practice and corner of the internet “Authentic Living” - I so deeply cherish the real, the deep, and the authentic type of connecting. And speaking of connecting, you can connect with me on…SOCIAL MEDIA 😄 (it comes in handy sometimes...) You can find me on Facebook at Authentic Living with Adina Landa or on Instagram @AdinaLanda_coaching
