Leaving Social Media / Taking Back My Creativity After Suffering From Depression

I’ve really been struggling with my ties to social media lately. All honour to the wonders of the internet, but there’s something about it that makes me emotionally ill.

It’s not necessarily because the internet in itself is wrong. I think it’s because it’s wrong for me at this time and place in my life.

Before my depression, I was a very active musician and overall creative person. I wrote music for hours a day and loved doing it. I pretty much lost all of that to the illness. I long so much to get back to a creative lifestyle and my heavy involvement with the internet is currently preventing that from happening.

I experience a nagging drain of energy whenever I go on social media nowadays, to the point when I start to feel low. At the same time, I suffer from not being the creative person I once was. I need to make a thorough effort to get that back into my life.

Social media has become the roadblock which keeps me from moving forward into a new life. I need to change.

To my friends that I’ve met on various platforms. Rest assured I will be back when the time is right. I need to balance up, so I hope you will understand.

Follow your dreams. Don’t limit yourself.
