Two and a half years ago I made the decision to turn off every single social media notification on my phone, computer, and tablet. I noticed myself spending too much time playing the “I feel left out” and “why doesn’t my life look like that” game. After my head injury I felt like the world was continuing without me. I never compared my life to others online until my injury, and being able to not physically do a lot of the things I was seeing online played a huge role in my self-esteem. I realized one day social media was gaining too much power over my life, so I changed this.
