Nigerian actress, Uche Ebere has disclosed how social media is negatively affecting the lives of young people.
In a post on her Instagram page, Ebere averred that social media is making most people compare their lives instead of appreciating everything they are and this according to her is the reason why most people are always depressed.
She bemoaned the fact that a lot of youths don’t know how to deal with things happening around social media.
She averred that they turn out to be followers instead of being able to stand up for themselves in their differences.
She urged her younger brothers and sisters to be confident in themselves so that they may be able to say ‘I can be like everyone else, I am good and happy with who I am, what I look like, what I have’ and so on
The veteran thespian urged them to have the spirit of contentment because comparison is the thief of joy. A lot of Instagram users concurred with her commentary and also shared their thoughts about it.
''Especially the younger ones, most of them don’t know how to deal with things happening here on the media! So they turn out to be followers instead of being able to stand up for themselves in their differences!
My dears be confident in yourself, so that you may be able to say, “I can be like everyone else, I am good and happy with who I am, what I look like, what I have” and so on.
Have the spirit of Contentment.
COMPARISON IS THE THIEF OF ALL JOY!
Happy Blessed Sunday Fam, Have A Prosperous New Week''
