Learn that your life is not based on others preferences: We often keep a count of the likes and dislikes we have got on our recent upload. This eventually makes us believe what people like in us.

Most of the times, we tend to share things we believe people will like. Hence, we gradually lose our real selves. Thus, by saying a ‘NO’ to social media will help you bring closer to your own self.
