Everything is more fun when you actively participate in it instead of just watching others participate and have all the fun: dancing, playing sports, eating, conversations, learning, and even social media. Social media is not bad - it’s completely neutral, yet some people feel drained and anxious when using it while others feel energized and inspired.
Because the former group consumes, scrolls, judges, negatively compares themselves, and watches from the sidelines, while the latter group actively engages, creates, shares, and has fun by participating. The former group feels separated and the latter one feels connected.
If you're holding yourself back from engaging, remember that social media is your space as much as anyone else's.
