Why do you feel disconnected from your social media account?

There have been so many times when I would change my social media name or delete extra accounts. I have had a bad habit of using more than one account on a platform. I usually have two accounts or more. Each account has a purpose, however when I feel disconnected from that purpose or account I want to delete it. I struggle to name things because names have deep meanings and I want the name of my account to not just be my name. I want a name that shows my personality and who I am in a certain moment of my life. I enjoy creating and pursuing my talents. Lately, I have been struggling to get rid of social media accounts that I do not need. I will be sad to delete an account because I feel I will become disconnected from the people who follow me. I know that once I delete an account I will have more time to spend on my other accounts that represent my current aesthetic. I know it will help relax my mind to not have to keep up with more account post activity. Another thing I have been changing is who I follow. I am making a goal to follow mostly non profit organizations or organizations with causes I support. I want my social media accounts to reflect the charity work and outreach I support. I think this is helpful to remind me of what is important. It is a big step to social media health for me and I am excited.

Here are ways to reconnect to social media: (my example plan)

Cons:

Unfollow accounts that are irrelevant to you: Any accounts that were followed for giveaways.

Unfollow celebrities: Most celebrities get an income by post and follower count. There is no need to follow celebrities even the ones I like. I can find updates about them in many places wether I want to or not.

Unfollow luxury brands: This brands already have money and support. I find it a waste to follow brands like this on social media because if makes me feel like I am confiding in materialism.

Unfollow strangers you do not interact with: Sometimes I would follow people because I like the aesthetic or a few pictures on their account.

Delete account: If you have tried to revamp your account and still feel disconnected, delete the account. If you tried to reconnect so it is okay to let go of it.

Pros:

Follow accounts that you like: This is anything that is in your interest. Any aesthetic, personalities, and organizations.

Follow accounts that inspire you: Any people or organizations that helps inspire you. Bloggers, Youtubers, Fitness, etc.

Follow accounts of inspirational people: Political, Environmental Activist, Feminism, Pride, Pageant Organizations.

I hope this helps anyone who feels disconnected with their social media account(s). I am constantly changing my aesthetic and changing my mind about certain things. I think it is healthy to disconnect from things that are not helping and to reconnect to the things that help one to grow.

Warmly,

-Yume♥♥
