It is probably best for me to put a disclaimer "just in case" someone decides to get offended by my opinion because that is what normally happens in the 2020 era right?
I am going to write a piece of an article on the midnight of when Mr. Shafqat MEhmood has announced for the vacations for all Pakistani Educational institutions from 26th of November to 45 December.
I disabled notifications and blocked social media apps until 8 pm. Yet, I still cannot stop looking at my phone, waiting for the notification light to blink at me.
The definition of beauty is one of the most divisive, diverse, and debated topics in the world’s history.
There is an argument as old as time, of whether or not “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. Some believe that beauty is completely subjective, and thus merely exists in the minds of those who contemplate it. Others argue that if beauty is subjective, then the word beauty has no meaning and that nothing is beautiful as a result.
I hate social media because I have hated myself my entire life, wish situations are different, and seeing other people “be happy” just upsets me. It doesn’t matter if I know that they may be faking their happiness, just seeing happiness triggers my self-hate and mental illnesses (e.g. depression makes me feel incompetent and worthless).
Listen up, guys! The internet is a source for endless entertainment and information for sure. It’s a place for people to connect from all over the world on social media platforms which anyone would agree is awesome. After all, these means of communication offer a window into the lives of celebrities, politicians, minority groups and the general population, and when used correctly they can strengthen the bonds between humans. However, just like nobody is perfect, neither is the social media which has evolved into a platform where many people are compelled to start discourse. A quick scroll through Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, or Reddit will quickly reveal that social media has become a breeding ground for toxic behaviors and harsh criticisms.
"Unfollow anyone on social meida and in real life who does not make you feel empowered, informed or inspired."-Unknown
The question on whether you should unfollow someone you use to know on social media can feel overwhelming especially if it is someone you know such as a friend, family or your favorite celebrity. There’s no shame in unfollowing someone such as friend, family or celebrity for reasons such as a loss of connection and feelings of comparison.
There aren’t much bolder actions than throwing caution to the wind and telling the world that you support this status that you’ve written from the deep brilliance of your brain.

I've been an internet troll guy for like a 5 ~4 years and I guess you've been too for a long time, or maybe you still that kind of Girls/Boys sharing memes every minute following every memes page you could find on Facebook or Reddit or Twitter,9GaG or Instagram, trying to create memes the whole time so you could make people laugh, or maybe creating memes so you could abuse feminist or LGBTQ community or Chinese (in these coronavirus days), or minorities or maybe getting enough likes, followers for that useless page that you've created just to make other people who don't give a sh*t about you so let's see how these memes are affecting your life.
A lot of people nowadays are suffering from eating disorders, sleep issues, depression and anxiety. More than 50% of those problems are related to social media and cyber-bullying. We live in a world where the amount of likes and comments under our photos indicates how worthy we are.
Like many others, especially in my age group, I’m a little bit obsessed with social media. Everyday I hop onto Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to scroll through my feeds of friends, family, and news to stay up to date and interact with the world around me. It’s perfectly normal for their to be negativity on my feed, which I am sure is the same for most people. Twitter, more so than other social media platforms, has a reputation for being extremely toxic, especially given the current circumstances. All across the app people are venting and arguing about every topic from politics to their personal lives and strangers are able to interact with these outpourings. This is what makes Twitter so toxic. Platforms like Facebook and Instagram curate feeds centred on what the user searches for on their platform and who they follow. Twitter does the same to a certain extent, but there is also a lot more interaction beyond these parameters.
2020: The year of essentials + my story of building trust in something greater than myself
At the beginning of Summer 2020 just as I was about to let out another audible cry, or rather melt down on my yoga mat feeling as broken as thousands of scattered puzzle pieces with the question,
