Yes, it is.

Wow, there is so much info from psychologists, human science experts, and the like on how social media is causing more damage to society, than any good it may do.

I am not going to deny this to myself, or be a hypocrite, or pretend and excuse with I feel it is okay.

I just can’t be someone with apathy, someone who can make justifications and excuses to turn something into what I want to hear.

I just can’t.

Social media is increasing many harmful behaviours, damaging people’s psyche’s, causing ridiculous amounts of bullying and narcissism, hindering social skills, hindering education, encourages oversharing, damaging memory, social skills, hindering people getting out and having real interactions, increasing anti-social personalities, anger, aggression, increasing a whole mass of uneducated and unwise opinions and advice, flushing away what used to be genuine emotions and interactions and so much more.

Wow.

That is a whole lotta bad influence and harm.

Scary, actually.

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

  1. Good info. Thanks for posting.

  2. I like the questions that your post has reminded me to ask of myself: What is my role in the community of social media? What do I do with it? Is it healthy for me? In what ways does it benefit my life? What are the most beneficial things about it, and how can I pursue more of that while meeting the needs of others? What are their expectations for these platforms, and which ones should I embrace?

  3. It is a bit scary.

  4. I’m currently debating this regarding my WordPress account, as I’m much more open on here than Facebook!! Benefits vs drawbacks of oversharing!

  5. This makes me glad I only have this as a means of social media. I used to have fb and all of that but God opened my eyes and I realized real life and real people are what mattered to me. Great post once again!!! God bless you sister!
