The reasons why I decided I needed to get off social media asap:
brain felt like mush
comparison of my work was brutal
waste of time
not enough time to do what I wanted to do

Recently I met a person that gave me another eye roll when I told them I teach how to take Advanced Selfies. He didn’t understand. He thought it was pathetic.
