I enjoy using IG as curated timeline of photos from travels, as I’m currently living overseas. I also like the fact that it’s a useful source of advertising for small businesses.
But it’s very easy to get drawn into negativity, and I definitely struggle with the anxiety I’m not making the most of my time and achieving as much as other people seem to. It becomes very easy to forget that people are, on average, posting the best things about their life not the worst so it isn’t a true reflection of their life. It makes it harder to avoid comparing to others.
