Addicts All Around

Open phone.

Go to Facebook.

Scroll.

Like.

Share.

Put phone down.

Repeat.

Day after day, we mindlessly scroll social media platforms for the next hit of dopamine. It keeps us going and fueled enough to get through the mundane day. If we really think deeply about it, people are expected to wake up every morning, take time way from themselves and their loves ones, to be a slave to Capitalism.

The scrolling helps the day melt away.

While we are stuck in freeze mode, scrolling away, we find that others are not so different than us.

We all are scrolling.

Scrolling to numb the pain.

We all are human.

Trying to survive.

Next time you judge someone suffering with addiction, make sure you put down your phone first.
