FB shouldn’t really have much effect on your mental health.
Like anything else it can be used it for many things, good or bad.

Everything that goes on FB is filtered. A person can choose what and what not to post, and what sides of it to show. So even if a person shows they have a perfect successful life or whatever, it doesn’t have to be fully accurate.

Not everyone’s lives are ‘better’ and even if they are – it shouldn’t effect you.
You should live your life the way you want to, as much as it’s possible for you.
Comparing to others is only going to make you struggle more and for no good reason, their lives don’t fully effect yours and how successful (or unsuccessful) they are have no effect on your life.

I know but I still see theirs and it just bums me. I need to erase it. plus I get so paranoid of what other people think of me and my pathetic life. I just have it to not look weird , but f**k it, I don’t care anymore. being an outcast is the easiest way off

Yeah but it’s not really something you can hide from regardless of FB.
There are successful people out there.
There are also unsuccessful people, people in between and in all kinds of situations.
You may see less about them if you ditch FB but there’s still people who are going to have a good life and you can’t really be sure you can fully avoid them.

I doubt it’s all that weird if you don’t have one, not everyone like getting too involved in these things. You don’t have to have it if you don’t want to.

I doubt anyone thinks you’re pathetic and even if they check your page and saw you don’t have as many.. well, posts as theirs or such, i doubt they’ll think much of it. They’ll probably be too focused on themselves anyway; Like you should be too.

You don’t have to be an outcast, just don’t let what they do effect you so much, you should focus on yourself and what you want to do, not compare yourself to them.

yeah im focusing on me. and yeah I wont be able to avoid lucky people, but i’ll avoid most. plus I got tired of the narcissists and gay ‘friends’ I have there. some posts they make disgust me really. reading most posts put me in a bad mood, its so addictive though! best way is to shut it off completely

Agree. It’s true that it’s better to deal with it instead of running away, but if it does you good or gives you relief to delete fb i don’t think it’s a bad thing. I deleted it last year because of the same reason, and also because if you’ve had friends or ex-couples problems fb just becomes a way of pouring salt on the open wound.

good for you! fb is a toxic. yeah its like pouring salt definitely, it complicates lifes. it brings inmaturity to communication about serious matters. and so many other negative things. so much drama

Agreed.

I hate FB!!! If its causing problems get rid of it. These people on FB can shove their lives up their butt for all i care.lol

I don’t have, never had and will never have a Facebook account. People used to think I was antisocial before, now many are deleting their accounts or spending less time on it. It’s just I’d rather spend my time doing other things than seeing pictures of my cousins that I haven’t seen in a decade getting rich in France or something like that. And all the gossip and the fakery…

I had a fb account but deleted it as soon as I saw that it was was all about popular rich people having fun and posting their beautiful pics I deleted it.. jealousy is the last thing I need in my mind… just thinking about fb reminds me of how much of a fucking loser I am…

lonelyguy91 8/15/2015 - 5:07 pm

yeah that’s the main reason why bro. it gets to the point where its also annoying. also tired of their narcissism and stuff
