This is how I felt, and sometimes still feel about social media.

As a fellow Gen Z-er, I feel like many of us hold this “Pics or it didn’t happen” belief that reflects our relationship with apps like Instagram and Twitter. It’s to the point where if you don’t document your life in some way on social media, you’re kind of looked down upon.

But as you described, there’s so much more to life than scrolling and double-tapping pictures, and I totally agree with this. It’s just hard to separate ourselves from the digital norms of today’s digital world. But yeah, I appreciate you sharing your journey with social media Jess :).
