I’m gonna make this short and sweet because Blazin'Squad Haydn and I have been pouring all our energy into this.
We quit mainstream social media.
I hate it, I've written about it at length over the past year or so but the truth is, I can't hack it anymore. Maybe you're more resilient than I am but when it affects one's mental health so much, there needs to come a point when it's time to say enough is enough. There's so much evidence out there already about the effects of social media on health, politics, etc.
I also know it sounds so batshit considering I'd excelled on social media but you know what? I hated it. I just couldn't “perform” any more and I've had all the symptoms of burnout for over a year. That feeling of just wanting to burn everything and walk away, it's no way to be.
