Have you ever been scrolling through social media and just thought “god I want that life” of someone you’ve never even met? Maybe you’ve posted a photo that you love, but someone else’s likes start climbing higher and higher and yours sticks around the low double digits? Yeah us too.
There is no shame in comparing yourself to social media – we all do it. The thing is, doing it too much can have a pretty detrimental impact on our mental health, and even provoke us to make changes to our own lives to fit in or be better. That’s not good. So, we put our heads together over at Ditch the Label HQ and came up with this quiz, so you can see if it’s time to hang up the social media for a while, or if you are fine just the way you are handling it.
How did you do? Whatever result you got, this isn’t the be all and end all, and there loads of things that make you use and compare yourself to social media. If you are worried about how much you seem to be comparing your life to social media, read this list of tips on how to stop.
