A lot of you guys know me, probably you think I'm an idiot. Well, you are right. But I aint hatin. So, here is my suggestion. This is my opinion about how I became less lonely. I believe that Social Media increases loneliness. I know that society thinks that social media is important, but I had to ditch it. If you find me on social media, you are looking at a relic. The problem I had was that I would end up alone on certain nights, so I'd open social media to find someone to talk to. Sometimes they were there. Sometimes they weren't. Sometimes they cared. Sometimes they didn't. But the problem is that if I looked to OTHER PEOPLE to solve my emotional problems, I only made them worse. Every time I had that feeling like, I wonder if I can reach out to ___(person)____ then I only felt more lonely. Then it got to where the loneliness just did not ever go away. It seemed to be connected to using social media, but I couldn't understand it. Still I don't know why this happens. But if I just live my life, and work on what I need to accomplish, then I'm ok, I'm not lonely. If I go to social media and try to engage there, then I end up more lonely than if I'd never gone to social media. What I believe is that if a NoFap guy works on their life's goal or goals, the loneliness goes away. But if the NoFap guy hangs around on social media, chases women, worries about hanging around with buddies all the time, then he's going to be lonely. You can be either alone or lonely, it is your choice. I personally saw my loneliness go to nearly zero when I ditched social media. I deleted the apps from my phone, deleted the bookmarks on my computer, and I don't go there. What fills it up is my own life. Instead of social media, I am present, wherever I am. I don't NEED likes or comments on posts. I don't NEED anything but what the present environment offers. I don't NEED to watch TV or movies, sometimes I do, but usually I do not. I can be content to the max by just BEING. It is enough if you allow it to be enough. Or, you can worry about sending a "like" to Kim Kardashian when she tries on a new dress. What sounds like a better use of your life? You only get one life, you know. Better to be in YOUR life, now, than somewhere else. You can be happy in YOUR life right now, if you decide. If you decide that you are not happy without social media, then you won't be. If you ditch social media, you might need a week to get used to the change. Then, when you hear people talk about "text-whatever" or "post-something" it sounds like stupid alien garble. And that is good, because that is what that stuff really is. Now you are closer to sanity. So prepare to be different. Cause being like everyone else is not the way to winning.
