You Should Unfriend Or Disfollow People That Unfriend Or Disfollow You On Social Media

One of the reasons why people should not follow too many people on social media is that they will not be able to see everybody’s posts on that same day. Keep in mind that you will gain more followers and friends as time passes. You need to make some space and room for those that are coming in the future.

It happens to all of us. We lose a follower or friend on social media. Sometimes, it makes us sad. Do you know what to do in response? Instead of being sad about it, why not unfriend or disfollow the person?

One of the reasons why people should not follow too many people on social media is that they will not be able to see everybody’s posts on that same day. Keep in mind that you will gain more followers and friends as time passes. You need to make some space and room for those that are coming in the future.

Another reason is that it is hard to keep track of who unfriended or disfollowed you on social media. Some platforms like Instagram and Snapchat will not get rid of people that unfriended or disfollowed you. You have to find out and remove the person’s account from your profile by yourself. The more followers that you have, the longer and harder it gets to keep track. On the bright side, losing a follower or friend makes things easier for us.

The third reason is that we might be trespassing on the person that has unfriended or disfollowed us. When people send a friend or following request, it shows that they are comfortable with us looking into their profile. When we accept their request, we are fine with them looking at our profile. Sometimes, it is best to not see what others are posting.

The fourth reason is that people that have unfriended or disfollowed us are using us to give them more views or likes. Some people that use social media are narcissistic. We need to teach those people a lesson.

The fifth reason is that it will help improve your mental health and reduce your narcissism. It will teach us to appreciate those we have in our account. It will make you not wish to have too many friends or followers. It will also help you cope with moving on.

If you have to unfriend or disfollow someone on social media, then make them unfriend or disfollow you to make it fair. Some platforms like Instagram have the option where you can make people unfriend or disfollow you instead of waiting for them to do so.

The only exceptions to those that do not follow or befriend us are businesses, animal or pet lovers, and celebrities. Understandably, they need our attention more than we need their attention.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
