Social media can be a good thing for some, but young women between the ages of 18 and 30 may have a difficult time if they are suffering from depression. The pressure of negative thoughts can cause internalization of the images and messages seen on social media. The hatred of others and the political schemes can drag anyone down as constant viewing can alter one’s mind. Social media and depression go hand in hand when a person finds themselves living on media sites every day.
Without filtering your media to trusted sources and limiting exposure to current events, the world can bring about only negative events. By finding a balance in social media usage, you can keep up with current events while staying positive.
Fear and the enclosure from social distancing can also play a role in leading to depression. Once a person latches onto social media, it is hard to break the cycle because it feeds off people’s emotions.

The Good and Bad Points to Social Media
Social media has become a habit for many people as we all want to know what is going on in the world and our friends and family’s lives. Everyone wants to feel loved and sometimes want others to know what is happening in their lives. For these reasons, it is good to have social media, but not everyone has good intentions. Cyberbullies and trolls who stream across social media have caused many people who are dealing with depression to fall victim to the cycle. These are among the younger generations of women who face problems.
Young women may face a range of problems relating to depression and social media. These problems may include:
- Decreased energy
- Loss of interest in their hobbies
- Feelings of hopelessness, guilt, or sadness
- Changes in weight or appetite
In the worst cases, their depression symptoms may lead to attempted suicide. Changing the environment is one of the best ways to break this cycle.
