So this past week I watched a movie on Netflix called Social Animals. This movie was actually about 3 teenagers and their different experience when it came to social media. One kid uses his Instagram for photography and actually got pretty famous for it, another girl is trying to be an aspiring model, and the last girl it seems it just trying to survive in this world with social media.
It was honestly a very interesting movie to watch and actually seemed to be one of the realer documentaries that I’ve watched about social media. This is because it also showed the downsides to social media such as the bullying, people asking for nudes, also the issues with FOMO, and “social media rules”.
It made me think about how I use social media in my everyday life and what I should do differently. I definitely recommend checking out this movie since it was pretty interesting. If you are interested in watching it then it is available on Netflix and is about a little over an hour long.
So if you decided to watch it comment down below on your thoughts and also do so if you’ve already seen it.
So I decided to make this video due to realizing that I have quite a few anime related apps on my phone. So why not share them with y’all and recommend a few to y’all. So check out the video I hope that y’all use some of the apps I showed y’all.

Now I decided to title this blog post as seeking validation because I realized that was what I was seeking when it came to Instagram. I was seeking to raise my Instagram followers to validate for myself that I was doing better than another individual. Who actually didn’t know we were in this insane competition. I would constantly check where their followers were and would hope that mine got higher than this individuals.
It wasn’t until speaking with my co-worker about one of her friends who is seeking the same thing that I realized what I was doing. I was able to look inside myself and ask myself what was I doing. I realized that I was being so stupid and those followers are just a number. Half of these people I don’t even know and probably will never talk to.
I realized that we all seek validation for different reasons but then I realized that that validation isn’t going to make anything better. We are going to continue to want more and more just to make ourselves feel better. We have to seek that validation through ourselves and not other people.
This is why I’m trying to do more self-love this year. This is why I’m trying to not use social media as much or take it as seriously. I’m trying to keep my focus on producing YouTube videos and helping others because I realize that those things make me happy. Those things make me feel good and the best thing is that I don’t want anything back.
So do you think that you seek validation? If so do you know why you seek it? Are you going to change that? Those are the questions you should ask yourself. If your someone who doesn’t seek validation then I can say I which I was like you and I want to know you secret haha.
But that’s my blog post for today. I hope y’all enjoy it and be sure to check out my social media handles and follow me if you like. Ironic I know haha. But I honestly I hope that y’all enjoy the day and be grateful for all that you have.
Happy Monday everyone! For today’s video I decided to discuss acceptance and why we want to be accepted by not just people we know but those we don’t know. So check out the video and of course comment down your thoughts or things you would like me to discuss or explore.

Happy Monday everyone! I know I usually do a video on Mondays but I was able to record so I’m doing a blog post instead. As many of you know I’m continuing on this self-confidence journey and this time I’m adding on Facebook when it comes to limiting social media.
In some ways I honestly think that Facebook may be harder than Instagram and this is because not only do you scroll but people post articles that get you sucked in. Well I know I get sucked in and end up spending more time on there then I wanted to.
As for my Instagram limit I’ve actually been doing pretty well although one day I did go over the limit by a lot. But this was mostly due to the fact that I had an issue to take care of on there. But on a good note I went down like 15% when it came to my total usage so I’m very happy about that. But overall I’m excited about the progress that I’ve made.
So let’s see what happens this week and I know that I’ll be able to succeed. Also feel free to comment down below on your ideas or thoughts on what I’m doing.
So I’m sure that many of you know that last week I was trying my best to only use Instagram for 30 mins a day and surprisingly it is going well. I did noticed that I tend to use my other social media a lot more such as Facebook but I think next week I may put a limit on that as well.
Overall last week I took a good look at my usage and I think I want to try and conquer using my phone less overall. Like I noticed that I tend to pick my phone all the time even when I don’t get a notification. It’s just that I like picking it up. So today I’m going to try and pick it up less.
Plus I’ve actually been trying a new thing this week and that is falling asleep to meditations that work while you sleep. I’ve mostly been listening to self-confidence ones I find on YouTube and they have been pretty cool. They make me very very tired and I kind of feel a difference but I could be wrong so we will see.
I’ve also been trying to journal each night as well to get rid of my feelings that I noticed throughout the day. This is mostly so that I don’t just keep everything inside. But I will get more into that maybe in Thursday’s update since I have a new video releasing tomorrow.
