No social media till September

Aug 19, 2021

I turned off all of my social media and it’s so quiet. Just me and my thoughts.

I don’t feel lonely though. More just like I am going through drug withdrawals. I keep looking at my phone even though I know there’s nothing there, no hit of dopamine I’ve gotten used to.

No anxiety, either. And maybe I’m addicted to that, too. No worrying about if someone is gonna like my photo or send a DM or anything like that. It’s nice. Weird and new, but nice.

I don't want to go back to the way things were. I don't want my phone to own me ever again.
