When was the last time you turned off your cell phone? It's the one device with an off button, yet it is always on
Most people are addicted to their phones. How do you know if you're addicted? Do you walk from room to room in your house with your phone in your hand? Is your phone the first thing you reach for in the morning to check you social media feeds and emails? Do you leave your phone on the dinner table while you eat with friends and family just in case you need to check something? Does not having your phone make you feel anxious because you feel disconnected? If you answered yes to any or all of these, you're addicted.
Kids who can't even talk or read yet know how to use smartphones and tablets to watch YouTube videos. Microsoft has stated based on their research, most people have an attention span less than a goldfish. Sadly, I am one of those people, but I'm tired of being part of a problem and want to contribute to a solution. If you read this far, thank you. There's just a little left to go.
On Christmas Day, I challenge you to turn off your phone for the entire day. No phone calls, no social media, no screens. Just you, your family, and your friends. I promise, when you turn your phone back on on December 26, ABSOLUTELY nothing will have changed. You DID NOT miss out on anything. Make actual memories, not digital ones.

I dream of a social media world in which we don’t need personal photographers, photoshop, filters, and perfect framing to share our lives.
I want a social media world in which Instagram is not the new People, Cosmo, or Vogue, making us wish we lived the lives of other people. Wishing we were more. Prettier. Wealthier. Healthier. More of an “influencer.” I want a world in which we get more likes for truth than flashy photos. Likes for authenticity. Likes for living and loving ourselves.
Or maybe it’s a world in which we don’t count on likes at all.
Like many people, I can suffer from social media induced depression. When I was sick, it killed me watching my friends travel, study abroad, meet their person, and start their families. I didn’t have a fear of missing out, I had grief from missing out. But now, as my life and health have shifted, social media doesn’t bring sadness for myself, but for all of us. We need and want human connection, but find ourselves veiled as the person we want to present. Think the world should see. Hope the world will accept. The truth is, the likes and filters, followers and curated feeds grow us apart instead of together.
Y’all know me by Kiara Hampshire, i know. I deleted that account, and y’all know why. i’m not a slut bc i’m showing my legs, or my body. I’m just proud of what i became. And again, i’m getting a lot of questions ‘can i have you’re fb’ that’s not gonna happen anymore. i deleted it all! My life was messy. I’m starting again, lower than ever. I don’t want the million followers again. And guys stop with saying i’m fake, if u guys really don’t believe it, just unfollow me. Or should i go live? to proof it🤭
Please, enjoy yourself without social media. It destroys you’re life. ( i know i have instagram, only for myself. )
