I once read a book on social media addiction called the power of habit. It was about how we can use our brains to become addicted to something. The book really reminded me of Dayna Tortorioi’s “My Instagram”. The power of habit was written by Charles Duhigg, and he is one of the most influential people in psychology. The book talks about how habits are formed through repetition. In this book, he talks about how you can learn to be more disciplined when you’re trying to become more disciplined. He also talks about how you can get rid of your bad habits if you want them to go away. As we know Instagram can be very addicting because of all the unrealistic lives and edited pictures that influencers post created a low self esteem for others who now feel embarrassed to post something that will probably be nowhere near that. I think it’s important to understand what makes us addicted and why we need to change our behavior.

This song makes me think and wonder all the historical events we have been going through because it describes the pandemic perfectly and  it’s interesting seeing historical events while they’re happening and recognizing them as such. I’m only in my 19 but I’ve lived through a few major world events already –  the 2004 tsunami in the Indian Ocean, multiple devastating hurricanes (Katrina in 2005), the economic recession of 2008, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, civil wars in many countries around the world, the rise of global terrorism, the tsunami and nuclear accident in Japan in 2011, and the Covid-19 pandemic, just to name a few. With all the craziness around us it is my hope that we will try harder to love, to live, and to light other people’s lives with our good spirits and helping hands. The alternative is certainly possible, and terrifying.
