Yes, you need a break. You need a break from everything. It is very important otherwise stress will overtake you. You need a break from your work, from social media, from every stressful thing. You need to spend your precious time with your loved ones including your friends and family. They need you. And you need a break. Understand this now, before it’s too late. I will explain the purpose of this in the following paragraphs.
I’ve seen many people who are unnecessarily active on social media like Instagram and other apps. Why are you wasting time on these social media apps? Why do you want people to see you happy? How can you say that they will be happy seeing you smiling? These things are temporary. When will you realize this? After wasting the most important years of your life?
I’ve even seen those people who are depressed and tensed in their real lives, but they post their happy pictures and such stuff on social media. What they don’t understand is that people just don’t care about other’s life. Every single person is busy in his own life. But they are not ready to understand this. This is very sad that our young generation owns happy faces with sad souls. It’s painful to see these teenagers sad and depressed. It’s really painful.
“Taking a break can lead to breakthroughs.”
By taking a break from work does not mean that leave your job and spend your whole time at home. Just lower the amount of work you do. Most people want to make more money than they need to live a good life. Why? Why are you torturing yourself for the sake of money? Money is not more important than you. Believe me! I know money is necessary for survival but running after money is not what makes us happy. Money can’t buy us peace. For mental peace, you need a break. Believe me, a short break can give you more happiness than your imagination.
Some people don’t take a break from both work and social media. Let me explain this. I’ve seen many parents who spend 8-10 hours in their work. When they return home, they just start using their cell phone. It has a very bad effect on kids. They will copy what they see. If parents don’t give time to their children, they will not give any time to parents when they are old. On the other hand, some kids don’t give time to their parents. What they don’t know is that they are nothing without their parents. Their parents provide them food and every facility they have. They spend their whole time on social media ignoring their parents. It’s the worst truth of our society. For God’s sake, spend your precious time with your loved ones. Don’t make yourself regret it in the future.
Students also deserve a short break from their studies. That’s also very important. Educational institutes should provide some relaxation to their students after every few months. It’s not seen in most of the institutions. Such a burden on students is not good for their mental health. Today’s competition between students is also causing stress and depression in students.
One more thing I want to say is that you should also take a short break from your social media friends. No doubt sometimes we meet good people on social media and slowly they turn into our friends and then really close friends. I agree that luckily sometimes we found some honest and true friends on social media but making every other person your friend is not right. More friends mean more stress. To be honest there are only three to four real friends in your life. The rest of the people are not your real friends. Ignoring your family and real friends for such fake people is not at all good. You’re just wasting your time and love on people you’ve not even met. Don’t do this. Your family loves you and needs you. You should spend your time and love on them.
At last, I just want to say that this lockdown gave you a good chance to take a break from everything. If you have missed the chance, no problem you can still take a short break. It is completely up to you. Leave social media for a few days. Take a break from the social media community. Stop running after money. Take a short break from your studies. All these things will provide you the mental peace you’ve been looking for in everything and everywhere. Believe me, it will help you to be happy in real life not only in the world of social media.
