Do I love my media? Or do I hate it? I don’t even know it myself. It’s super hard to tell. I feel that media is like a family member, who you live with, and you love them but sometimes they can get on your nerves and you can get super angry.
As unbelievable as it sounds, media helped me to find who I am. I’ve seen, heard and read so many things that helped my growing and all of them was because of media. On one hand a part of me is happy to have media in my life, on the other hand I hate is sometimes. If I really want to study but I get a notification, I start checking my phone way too often and I can end up scrolling through my feed, which provides me information that I am interested in. So it’s super hard to put my phone down and do something else.
In conclusion I could never tell if I loved media or not. But I am definetly grateful that I have it present in my life (even if I sometimes hate it).
