I Quit Social Media in College—This Is How My Life Changed

From a Washington Post inspired life story by Jenna Bloom headlined “I quit social media in college. This is how my life changed.”

I’m a 19-year-old college student, and I’ve known for a while that I am unable to be a moderate social media user. I would constantly keep up with the lives of my peers, which pressured me to post all the time, proving that I had a social life, too. Sometimes consuming and posting made me feel good — elated, even — and that was the problem.

So, just like any toxic relationship, it was time for a breakup.
