Social media can be a very wonderful thing but at the same time too it could be the thing that would paint a bad picture of you. We all do good things and bad things on social media, we all do things that are questionable and we all get into undesirable fallouts with friends or other people in that matter.
As an autistic person I always fall into the nasty trap of overthinking that people could be judging my posts or frowning upon them. I had friends that have parents who couldn’t wait to taint me under a bad and questionable name because I am being my own person, I am doing well in my education and I don’t have a strict upbringing. With being autistic and having an anxiety disorder, it’s sometimes very easy to get into the trap of thinking that you’ve done a lot of things wrong.
There are a couple of tips –
1 – Limit your time on social media (especially in this time). There is such a thing as too much.
2 – Don’t partake or engage on any conflicts. Conflicts can get you into a nasty state. I had been in arguments so many times on social media. Facebook and Twitter can get you in sticky points, just post something that you want but be mindful.
3 – Many many many conspiracy theorists are breeding on social media talking about vaccines and how 5G is proven to hurt people. Vaccines DO NOT cause Autism. This will be another post and video for another time but IT DOES NOT CAUSE autism. 5G, if you don’t believe then you’re probably wise. Just believe in something trusted, and if you don’t trust it don’t read it but keep mindful that this is a dangerous time and it’s helpful to take in account on what’s going on rather then following theories that are not true.
These tips will help you. More tips are on the way and how I used social media in the correct way with minimal hassle or arguments.
