The Interrelationship Between Social Media, Self-Worth and Mental Health Crisis

A social psychologist at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Jonah Berger, asserts that in social media, the reaction is what matters and those who use social media don’t want their friends to see their depression, anger or dull life. In a sense, people tend to share what is happier and lighter on social media. Image the situation. If someone shares all his depression and anger overly frequently, he might be identified as a loser or the weak.  What if most people fail to talk about their worries? What if most people tend to digest their problems alone? 

 

Do you judge other people’s lives chiefly based on the limited information on the posts on social media?  It has been proved that more than half of the high-profile people on social media are often those who are desperate to secure people’s recognition. They demand attention much like as people need oxygen. When it comes to selfies, countless people use photo-editing software to make themselves look unrealistically attractive or beautiful by altering their skins or even features.  Conducted in interviews from people ranging from ages 28–73, this Huffington Post article found that “60% of people using social media reported that it has impacted their self-esteem in a negative way, 50% reported social media having negative effects on their relationships, and 80% reported that is easier to be deceived by others through their sharing on social media

Increasing numbers of academic studies found that mental health problems coincide with the prevalence of social media. Teenagers are suffering from peer pressure to “keep up with their peer group” so as not to be socially excluded, isolated or marginalized.

Rates of stress, anxiety and depression are rising sharply among teenage girls in the past decade. In England, around 17,500 teenage girls committed self-harm over the past decade. As reported, teenage girls are suffering from peer pressure, and they are struggling with low “body dissatisfaction” and low self-esteem.

Use of social media was also contributing to a growing culture of sleep deprivation among young people, which potentially triggers mental health problems and chronic illness such as diabetes. 

 

We only get a small snippet of people’s daily lives, either on social media or offline. Life is not all roses. Everyone goes through something tough or challenging in life. Everyone has their problems to solve, either relationship issues, career crisis, or whatever. Generally speaking, people are unwilling to expose their weakness and imperfection on social media. People are unwilling to share their vulnerabilities, failures or life troubles on social media. People want to be loved, accepted or even envied. That’s why they tend to share something they are proud of, or something they are able to brag about.People are faced with constant false images ‘perfect’ lives” or ‘perfect’ bodies. If you go through most people’s lives on social media, you’d think everyone is living their best life as ever. Naïve people who have a limited social circle might suppose that they are the only ones who deal with problems and challenges in life. That’s why social media indeed distort people’s perception of other people’s real lives.

Life can be beautiful without perfection. There’s a strong link between unconditional love and posttraumatic growth. In truth, people only witness unconditional love during hard times. Unconditional love is found in imperfections. Imperfections teach us to be humble and compassionate. If you believe in miracles, be aware of the seven deadly sins and the power of tenderness. Earn approval and luck from God. According to the Bible, no one will be exempt from life challenges, including the chosen ones (1 Peter 1:3-9). God expects us to stay hopeful and “rejoice in our sufferings,” for “trials of various kinds” are training to make us “perfect and complete” (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). It’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” (Roman 8: 28). We fall and we grow. There's a strong connection between unhealed trauma and a dysfunctional immune system. If you rush yourself to become a better me, that might be a sign of unhealed trauma. As we learn to humble ourselves, life gets better. The connection between the brain and stomach is bidirectional. Negative emotions and chronic stress sabotage people's immune system. 70% to 80% of our immunity hinges on our gut health. Memory loss and cognitive impairment are common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, all of which are highly connected to type 2 diabetes. Early signs of type 2 diabetes include chronic fatigue, irritability, frequent urination, vision problems, and slow wound healing. Depression is prevalent in people with diabetes due to the fact that diabetes causes “structural changes in the brain.” Muscle-building helps regulate blood sugar levels. There is growing evidence that high blood sugar leads to reduced muscle mass. Beyond that, there’s a strong link between sleep deprivation and emotional weakness. People suffer from suppressed anger and pessimism. God is watching our every move. God sees through our motives. Mental health crisis is sweeping on a global scale because the core value of capitalism is incompatible with what human truly needs. Money cannot purchase inner peace. Wealth incurs fair-weather friends, frenemies, and snobs. I would say, inner peace is the utmost blessing from God. Stop recording the faults of others and practice compassion mediation instead.我喜歡文字,大概是因為我喜歡永恆的東西,而世上多數的東西都不是。不是所有人都需要心靈雞湯,如果你絕對正向而強壯。養心養身,而潛意識24小時不睡覺,身體自癒的開關落在潛意識的區塊,只有絕對入骨的正向樂觀才能痊癒,恐懼傷骨傷腎,老人家們容易膝蓋牙齒不好是因為恐懼多憂慮多。中醫主張生悶氣、恐懼、悲觀和過食是疾病的根源。自認不是棉花糖的勵志派,是寫實警世的定位,但我肯定有邏輯基礎的正向思考,Bible很多內容都很科學,也符合中醫的論點。佛教主張前世今生的因果論,而 Bible主張人生只有一回,但人生必有難題。難題分兩種,一種是磨練鍛鍊心智的training,好好表現,災難的背後會有禮物。禍福相依,壞消息可能帶來跳板、第三條路的視野、或逆境激發潛力。好消息往往伴隨更多責任挑戰,甚至暗藏陷阱,很多好消息最後變成頭痛點。第二種難題是試煉,上蒼期望你我在逆境中堅守,試煉,是上蒼決定該不該給你我天堂入場卷的門票!猶太人虔誠,但他們的教堂沒有神像沒有十字架,只有書(因為信仰在心中)。人生有很多上蒼的隨堂考,當掉就要重修(歷史就會重演)。氣生災,如果你我相信成功需要幸運,把「柔」做好,就可以賺福氣。Bible強調柔軟的力量、自律、謙卑、口舌之禍及傲慢之惡。寫信給站長(責任編輯)司馬儀: jpsiawase@gmail.com 如果遭受暴力(家暴,或霸凌)、性侵或性騷擾或任何身心虐待,撥打113保護專線,24小時全年無休。生活學業工作等等困擾,撥打安心專線「1925」。若簽約租賃碰到詐騙,撥打165反詐騙專線(警察)或內政部警政署反詐騙諮詢專線:0800-018-110
