“We’re just this tiny little life, on this tiny little planet, for this tiny moment in time, in this vast universe…that we know nothing about. Yet somehow, our own melodrama has become our everything. It’s what we live for and our downfall. This is not the human experience. It’s not supposed to be. No wonder we’re hurting so much.”
A spiritual path comes with a lot of questions and an ache for like-minded souls. Enter social media, which’s given us the ability to connect with others from all around the world, but at what cost?
On this episode of Enlightenedhood, Jenelle Glenn is back to hash out all of the ways social media is negatively affecting our mental health, self-awareness, connection, and spiritual growth. Leena and Jenelle took a real look at the business of a platform like Instagram and how we’ve become the product of a system that depends on our lack of worth and empowerment.
Leena and Jenelle also discuss how our habits on social media have hindered our ability to be truly present in our human experience, which when you zoom out of our every day on a grander scale, seems kind of silly.
Is it time to set a new standard for how we consume social media and “show up” on the Internet? What do you think?
