Summary

New notification: You may be wasting time and energy fighting a daily battle that is impossible to win.

Growing evidence shows that most of us subconsciously search for fulfillment - self-confidence, validation, connection, purpose, and more - in a place where we’ll ironically never find it: social media. What’s even more ironic? More and more of us are addicted to the chase, and our culture keeps us blind to how damaging this futile quest really is. When used in a healthy way, social media can enhance our lives in a myriad of positive ways. However, the majority of us unknowingly misuse social media in an unhealthy way, rendering it no more beneficial than a virus.

And the most dangerous disease is the kind that convinces you you’re not even sick...so while many believe there is no issue here to discuss, Damien Massias is already concocting a cure. First ingredient: awareness. As well as being a modern thinker, Damien is a life, mindset, dating, and relationship coach who will tell it to you straight - with no sugar-coating but still plenty of genuine sweetness.

This audiobook is your guide to navigating (and dodging) the dangers of social media, so you can still use it in a healthy way. It examines real-life case studies to illustrate how something we think of as being so small and harmless can actually have a colossal butterfly effect on our lives. But most importantly, this audiobook is a wake-up call to observe, examine, and reevaluate your own relationship with social media and recalibrate your compass toward true fulfillment.

A fascinating look at our evolving digital world

Even if like me you think you have a good relationship with social media, this book is well worth reading. It holds a mirror up and makes you ask yourself the sometimes uncomfortable questions of why you use social media the way you do. If you frequently use social media or have children, friends or family members who do, then this book is for you!
