Social media and Me

A few years ago I used to be hyperactive on social media. Initially, it was for exchanging updates of our life with friends & family. As time passed by my social media usage time increased and real-life interaction with my friends decreased. And I found myself in a toxic hell of infinite scrolling, validation, appreciation, and praises. However One day I observed that I checked a post of mine 10 times in a minute for viewing the number of likes and each time I saw the same number gave me a strange kind of sadness.
