For the first few days, everything went according to what I believed. I was bettering myself constantly and I didn't have any breakdowns like before until I started noticing that my phone was ringing and buzzing repeatedly at all hours from because of many different new sources which all reported about the events happening in the world. It was overwhelming and too much to handle. I couldn't continue to find out about the most absurd things one after the other.
I was worried everytime my phone buzzed because I was receiving too much negativity. Maybe being too conscious of what happens around you isn't always the best thing.
It was all very overwhelming and I was starting to change again but my mom realized and really helped me out.
My mom blocked my notifications and gave me limited time on my phone so I would stop carrying it everywhere.
Thanks to her I learned how to manage the knowledge my phone gave me and I learned to take time away from reading everything I see pop-up on my phone.
I now spend more time with my family because I don't pay attention to my phone and I don't worry about what's happening around me but I'm still very aware of the dangers of the world and what happens around the globe.
