Breaks are probably healthy for most people. Taking a break does not mean a person is offended by something, or does not appreciate people on social media. It just means they thought a break would be healthy, whether that is to be more productive or to be more present. Either way, to each his own.
For myself, there are many interesting people on social media. However, it is likely that the only way I will ever likely meet them is to create something that some company will buy as creators associate with other proven creators. Drama can be funny, but you have to limit it if you want to get anything done.
Now if someone wants to discuss working on something, I am always available. But that usually only happens once you have proven yourself in the arena.
As a knitter, who takes a project everywhere, it always amazes me when people say....... ''I'd love to knit too, but just don't have the time.'' They say this, as they are sitting beside me playing games/texting on their phones.
If Used Properly Social Media can help people. I too took a break because of wifi connection issues. But what helps me is HELPING OTHERS ! It cheets me up its why I Founded 3 Facebook groups and 4 Pages to help people and Act as A Voice For the Voiceles
For instance I do Medicaid Expansion for myself and the 1 Million Uninsured in Florida. I founded the Group and Page Expand Medicaid Now #ExpandMedicaidNow and I met a 21 yr old Gen Rodriguez who desperately needs access to Healthcare ! She had part of her lung removed and can not afford her medicines and sometimes takes COUGH SYRUP to Survive !
This is why I do Social Media to Help others ! Really ppl Gen needs help and without social media she could die ! No one would know abt this ! So please all help Us to #ExpandMedicaidNow and #SaveGen
Thank you Ana and The Point for giving me this place to try to save lives it is appreciated. God Bless
I am a project person, and I usually have at least 4 in different stages of completion. If I get bored or stuck, I change the music I am listening to and move on to something else. Every project usually gets a different playlist, meditative, upbeat, classical or oldies. It all depends on the project.
Social media can be time-consuming, and is geared to enforce your personal beliefs. You subscribe to channels of things that interest you, you only friend those that think the same as you, and you follow those that you admire. It narrows our thinking. One of the best pieces of advice I have ever heard was to befriend someone younger, someone older, someone more conservative or liberal. The ability to separate out the things we may disagree about yet still enjoy that person's company.
So what do I do in my situation, to 'get out of a rut' that's lasted over TEN YEARS???
I am disabled, and have been since childhood. Worsening, debilitating symptoms have taken over my life. Every day is exactly the same now, I have had all the surgeries I can have, seen all the doctors in the state, taken as much school as I could physically and mentally handle, and for the last TEN YEARS (or so) I have just been spending every day trying to SURVIVE, to EXIST and to keep on existing, just to make other people feel better. I have had such painful life-sapping chronic health problems, I began having ulcers, stress responses, nausea, etc. in FIRST GRADE. I have never been able to work, never really had many friends, and live in a small town with no car, no local friends or family support, living LOWER than my most basic expenses, but nothing left to sell off. So now I wait, every day is just if something happens to make it different from all the others. Every day is the same boring, monotonous BS, with the only difference being what movies/TV series I decide to watch all night...
+liacashmere58 You probably aren't missing out on too much. All important communication is done over the phone. I think that's a great life choice you've made :)
I guess you could miss facebook events but if they know you don't use it anymore they will contact you elsewhere. Works for me!
I've never been into social media. I don't do Twitter, Facebook, or Instragram. It is too negative after awhile. I stop going on gossip sites too. I started reading more, listening to music, and catching up on some TV shows. I like it and I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything
At 2:46, the fella was being sarcastic, but being Ana and who she is as a laymen person [a person without professional or _any_ specialized knowledge in a particular subject], and always taking the time to brag about her useless relationship, is completely oblivious to the situation. I think Ana should take the advice of her own story here and take a very long break from the internet, because my end-goal is to physiologically and psychologically rewire her (via pulling wires in her head and watching the results), she would not be missed.
+only half bad 333 It's just another form of self-content & egotistical self-centeredness that is juxtaposed to her crisis, confusion, and despair when she realizes that she has done absolutely nothing really meaningful with her life to this day as she is pushing into her late 30's. Her gluttony for constant attention is ruined at the expense of her vanity.
Glad he's doing that, it's nothing but beneficial to you. I cut social media down to only snapchat and just checking in on instagram like once a month just to see what my extended family is up to (I live away from them). Couldn't be happier since doing that. It's been so long since I used any other social media that I in no way miss it.
+aloof_aquarius Well my ass isn't glued to the seat. Of course I have face to face human interaction on a daily basis by running errands/having a job.
And yes, friends online can be there for you in a time of crisis and they have been there for me on multiple occasions (some even more than "real life friends"). Do I see them face to face? No but that doesn't make them any less real than any of my neighborhood friends. There are multiple other ways to "hang out" with them. You can skype, call, play a game, etc. Social skills don't worsen by not having "real friends", it worsens when you don't talk to anybody.
Can you depend on those online friends in a time of need? Can you hang out with them? It may be best to work on your social skills to meet people in real life to have face to face human interaction as to supposed to being glued to a screen
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
