Social Media Gives Hailey The Blues
“The thought of even opening the app gives me such bad anxiety that I feel like I’m gonna throw up,” shared the model in her latest YouTube video where she speaks with Dr. Jessica Clemons about why she left and what the app makes her feel. The 24-year-old who has been married to Justin Bieber since 2018 stated that every time she logged into the app she was met with a “very toxic environment.” a lot of hate and a lot of people saying dreadful, hurtful things to the model.
It Put Stress On Her Mental Health
Bieber got so candid that she admitted that she began to question if what people were saying about her was right. “I think when you’re going through a situation where you just have so many people hounding you with the same thing over and over and over again, it starts to mess with your mind and then you start to question everything and you’re like, ‘Is there something that I’m not seeing that they see?’” Thankfully, she has found a healthy way to deal with social media.
She shares that she reserves the use of social media for the weekends, only looking at her Instagram when it is convenient for her not because of a notification. She also took things one step further and changed her settings so only her friends and family can comment on her posts. “When I look at my comments now, when I put up a photo or a video or anything, I know it’s only going to be people that I know are only going to be positive and only going to be encouraging and uplifting.”
Other Celebs Have Give Up On Social Media To
Bieber was ahead of the masses when she decided that Twitter was not a necessity in her life. recently, former model Chrissy Teigen announced that she would no longer be active on Twitter. She shared a post with her followers that simply stated that she no longer wants to be a punching bag for keyboard thugs. She wrote that the social media platform, “no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something.”
