Hey guys 😩🥰, I took a break from Social Media and I want to share my experience.
Why The Break?
I took this break because I needed it! Mehn! It’s because of the whole #EndSARS Saga, the Lekki Toll Gate Massacre took a toll on me! I was down in the dumps, swimming in blues 😩😭.
I kept on telling myself, we don’t deserve these leaders! We’re asking for our safety and you’re killing us! How wicked! 😠😓
I had mixed blue feelings, I couldn’t sleep nor eat, I hate it here! I blocked some of my mutuals Because I could not believe I have link with wicked people! How could you justify the killings? How?
On the hand, different gory videos and pictures were flying around! I really couldn’t stay offline because I have some things to attend to online! But all those posts were too much for me!
I broke down totally when I heard the Derin and Oke’s Saga! I couldn’t stand the pain! Her agony, Oke’s mum and other family members. 😓😿😿😿😿😿😿
I had to get out of social media for my sanity! I was off work and social media.
How did it feel?
Niceeeeee! The first day was hard, you know I like to be online plus boo was not around on the first day, and I always want to update him about everything aside phone calls
I used my private line to open a new WhatsApp! It’s just him and I, no one else. It’s like a new world, I left Twitter, Instagram Facebook and WhatsApp.
I avoided all news channels, I was glued to Televista, Eva Plus, Fox and NG Wild. Gradually, I started feeling good, I watched some tutorial videos I had downloaded since. It was refreshing.
Second day, bobo’s around, I forgot my phone totally 🤣😅, it’s just us in our little world, doing the do 🌚, sleeping, watching TV, eating and all.
Bobo’s still online though, so news got to us about the 24-hour curfew, we stayed indoor, we took a stroll in our area, we watched our team’s match (Man United vs Chelsea)
It was all shades of fun. I asked if everything is calm before coming back, I’m back to work as well. Going offline is not that bad, I enjoyed it. My mental health is important, I have to protect it!
My heart goes to all the victims of this injustice💔💔💔💔. I’m proud of Nigerian youth, I love our strength! The lazy Nigeria youth doing what the hardworking adults couldn’t 🤣🤣🤣( It’s not my handwriting o)
So let’s gist! How did you manage this period, the emotional meltdown, the whole chaos, drop your comments, I’d be replying all. Stay safe♥️
