During the year 2015, the only thing that I did with full dedication was cycling around Islamabad, its beautiful hills and the surroundings. Mostly solo and at times with groups. A part from that and after much thought and reflection, I have come to this conclusion that most of my time was sucked using Facebook and Instagram. There is absolutely nothing productive about these tools. Yes I am being extremely blunt and may be negative about it. I do admit that they are great tools of communication and creative expression especially Instagram. But the cons are too bad to ignore. I don’t want to get into this argument about if they are good or not, shall they should be used at moderate or not used at all.
My personal realization is that its not giving me anything good as of now. I was addicted to a virtual word. Something so unreal and fake. Being injected with shots of dopamine for 5 seconds, leading most of us to another disease called narcissism. As of now I have publicly announced that I have quit these two platforms.
As of now my plan is to stay way from facebook for as long as one YEAR, yes ONE WHOLE YEAR, and the same goes with Instagram too. If granted with life, will see what to do after an year of detox. Its time to focus on things that matters most.
