Social media drama: Whether it be Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, we have all been involved in it one way or another, whether we were the one who started it or an innocent bystander. Whatever the case, it is never a pleasant experience. As a Christian I try to hold myself to a code of higher “social media ethics” and take the higher road, but petty arguments, rude comments, and subtweets sometimes test my patience. To avoid the hurt, annoyance, and all around nastiness of social media drama, here are 5 ways to avoid it that are inspired by the Bible.

  1. Never comment when you are angry: Proverbs 15:1 says: “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh answer stirs up anger.” Your quick-tempered comment might sound great today, but tomorrow you will probably regret it.
  2. Tame your jealousy monster: So your best friend and her boyfriend are totally cute and post completely adorable selfies all over their timeline and you are 100% single. So what? Be happy that they are happy! Social media brings out the jealousy in all of us, but just remember that although they take cute pictures and make cute statuses, things aren’t always flowers and rainbows for them.
  3. WWJP?: This stands for “what would Jesus post?” and this is pretty self-explanatory. It goes for comments as well as posts. Knowing what is appropriate to post and what isn’t will save you lots of drama in the long run!
  4. Forgive and forget: As Elsa would say, “Let it go!” Let your social media grudge go. Jesus calls us to forgive. Yeah, it is hard, but you will be so much better for it in the end!01250cc2d6220796a463b5c7b03a476e

Social media can be great, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes it can be more of a hassle than anything! As the Bible says in Philippians 4:8, we are to focus on the things that are right and noble and pure and admirable. This goes for Facebook! Let your page reflect you as a Christ follower and let it be a platform for God to use you as an example for others!

How many of you would say your social media use is at a healthy level? When I say healthy I mean that it doesn’t run your life. You don’t stop everything in the middle of the day just to check all of your accounts, it doesn’t affect your job or school productivity, you don’t stay up late scrolling and scrolling, and it doesn’t affect your self-esteem or make you jealous. Odds are, we all have a semi-unhealthy relationship with social media. Yes, social media is a great way to connect with people and is a fun distraction from life, but it can become almost an addiction if you aren’t careful. Here are a few ways to make sure your relationship with social media is a healthy one.

  1. Schedule time for social media: If you are like me, you end up scrolling your social media pages multiple times a day. I don’t even want to know how much time a day I waste doing that. To keep yourself more productive, designate a certain time of day to check your accounts and stick to it. Maybe it is checking it once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and once in the evening.download
  2. Delete the apps: If you have a tough time staying away from social media during the day, then delete the apps off of your phone. This doesn’t delete your accounts, it just deletes the easy access to them. It forces you to log on to the accounts on your computer instead of your phone so access to the sites isn’t as easy or instant.
  3. Be smart about who you follow: I know there are some people I follow on Instagram that I tend to get really jealous of. I get envious of their hair, their clear skin, even the places they travel! If you are following people that make you feel bad about yourself or make you feel left out, it is time to stop following them. The more time you spend comparing yourself with other people on social media the more depressed you get. Studies prove it! Just remind yourself that these are just posts, and their life isn’t as good as they make it look. A picture doesn’t tell their whole story.

Healthy social media use means that it doesn’t interfere with your happiness or self-esteem, and it doesn’t take up large amounts of your time. Social media is a great outlet when you’re smart with the way you use it!
