  2. My coworkers do this IRL and it's so toxic. They feel the need to brag about their personal life in a meeting and on a work chat. I really don't understand these people.

  3. I deleted Fb January 1 and IG a month ago and man I feels great! I used these platforms in a unhealthy way and when I realized it I deleted it. People look at me funny still but I wake up present and focused on the right things for me. Social media isnโ€™t for everyone ๐Ÿ™ thank you for sharing

  4. I enjoy instagram for the foodpictures I see there and what people I enjoy watching post there,mostly gardeners ,doctors.authors and spiritual people,aswell as some aquaintances of mine.No need to be jealous of what other people have,if I put my mind to it and it were important to me,I could get there aswell. I chose my life's path differently.And I don't see as much anger and negativity as on facebook or the news.So in essence it comes all down to how settled we are in our life and what we perceive as important.

  5. I love how he says People come In slaved from other peoples opinions ๐Ÿ˜ because itโ€™s so true people need to stop caring and be free from other peoples opinions

  6. Iโ€™ve deleted all my social media last month but Iโ€™m kinda getting an urge to make an instagram again although I never posted. Now I just make videos out of boredom and post them on YouTube. The quality of them isnโ€™t good (yet) but I do it to stay away from social media and I feel like Iโ€™m being productive ๐Ÿ˜…

  9. Social media if used correctly, is an asset , not something that takes away from you. Stop living for other people , and start living for yourself, stop caring about who sees you, worry about what The Most High thinks of you. He worded this all perfectly, an app can't make you depressed, you do that to yourself as you compare yourself to others .

  10. This is well needed to hear! Everyone share this video with a friend โค๏ธ peace and love to all! Subscribe for fitness content

  11. Instagram is so cool though. We get to see how other people live their lives(of course they mostly only show the good stuff though) but I think itโ€™s useful when used wisely

  12. People are posting their HIGHLIGHTS not their "BEHIND THE SCENES" so never ever compare yourself to an ILLUSION.

  13. Stopped using mine years ago.. surprised no one tried to โ€œHaCk N dElEteee ITttโ€ ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚

  14. On one aspect, it creates the necessary emotion for spiritual purges to occur ๐Ÿ™‚ the planet increases in frequency but not everyone is ready. Few actually are, so traumas still have to exist, to balance the speed of planetary ascension. That's how I view things. Hugs >:D<

  15. Build your life away from social media. Do not use social media to start living. Don't forget, this is all new to mans psyche. ๐Ÿ’ก

  16. That's true Ive stopped using my phone for a month and I saw the changes. social media disconnect people from reality

  17. There has never been a generation document so much doing so little! I know a lot people who need to watch this but whatโ€™s the point when they donโ€™t get the message behind the words.

  18. hi ralph i love the music you use in the background of your videos. can someone tell me what song this is ? thank you

  19. All this social media garbage is turning people into narcissists .. an they dont even realize it lol it all started with myspace, then came facebook, now its instagram. Everybody thinks they are famous an dwell on shit they dont have all day.

  20. I hardly go on Instagram but when I do I only text my sister and I post edits. I donโ€™t care what others think. The only person that can judge/change you is you.

  21. To be honest I love my Instagram account I'm following a lot of nature type of people who post pictures constantly of trees and waterfalls an camping. I'm following a lot of food videos and fashion. I look at my Instagram as a therapy, it really does help keep me calm me. When I'm just scrolling through my Instagram feed I see so many things that I'm like oh I want to go there I want to try this I want to wear this. so it really does not make me depress surprisingly because I can understand how it would make other people depressed. I do want to start having 1 day out of the week where I just do not go on Instagram or Facebook or the internet at all like I just will hide my phone! My fiance and I should try this.

  22. Great perseption you are entitled to and thatโ€™s all it is.. nobody or nothing can tell you how or what to think or feel.. if feelings are thoughts in the min created by the brain whoโ€™s responsible for the way you feel ๐Ÿค”..๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ’ž

  23. I got a million dollar question
    Does Ralph live in Africa, America or Europe??
    It can't be America because he seems tranquil and in peace, which is a hard task to accomplish here in America lol

  24. Amazing video Ralph !!

    I truly agree with that, we gotta manage the time we spend and the feeling we have towards other people on Instagram.

    I believe that Instagram is a great tool, but if used excessively and with no control it can cause distraction and negative emotions.

    In the end, it all comes to managing ourselves.

    Thank you! ๐Ÿ™

  25. Na Ralph I gotta disagree. People will always find a reason to be depressed. The suicide rates were staggering long before IG. Depression is a thing that people can lay atop their failures and society supports it. If depression was a real thing youโ€™d be able to use it to get out of jail like other mental instabilities. I remember being bipolar was all the craze..then ADD now depression.
