Vicky Pattison says that social media can be extremely toxic and that sharing too many details online can affect people’s mental health. Kanye West feels like Instagram is the best medium to get her ex back
We’ve all had a terrible breakup and unfortunately everything has now been made public.
When I broke up in 2018 I was desperate not to be a victim so I posted all these sexy revenge selfies to say, “I’m fine, I don’t need a man.”
But inside I was broken.
Social media can be extremely toxic. We were all warned about this before we joined – and were constantly reminded.
Everyone begs everyone to be “nice” but it doesn’t matter. It is still an extremely dangerous place.
If you’re having a hard time or feel low, it could be aggravated.
Kanye has lost Kim, he is absolutely devastated and now feels like Instagram is the best medium to bring her back.
Ironically, it was Kim who made her name on social media – and she remained silent.
Broadcasting your dirty laundry online will never end well.
Sometimes it feels good to get your story out there, but not when you’re scorned or hurt or if you’re suffering about your mental health.
Kanye is being turned into a meme and being ridiculed, but that’s no fun at all. We should see that this is a man who is struggling to deal with the breakdown of his marriage.
I really believe someone needs to get rid of Kanye’s social media – to step in and take control of the situation.
It didn’t work for anyone involved – especially their children – and he clearly wouldn’t get the results he wanted.
So I really hope someone is taking care of him and that he has some good people around him that can help.
I think it’s healthy for people to step away from social media sometimes and take a break.
It’s obviously extremely difficult for someone like me who uses Instagram as part of their job.
But sometimes I need a break.
This week, I’m in Dubai with my boyfriend Ercan and will be off the phone for a bit. I’ll be away from Instagram for a few days and my device time will decrease – depending on how long I can go without it!
I feel the need for a digital detox sometimes and I want to be more present when I’m with Ercan.
Kim and Kanye have clearly chosen to live their lives in public, as I have been.
I recently did a TV show about my engagement and did a few magazine shoots.
When things are going well, you want to scream about it and be seen cuddling your other half on the front page of a magazine.
But you can’t turn it off when things get tough.
I think the only way to change that narrative is to take a step back and say, “I need to give me some time.”
Looks like Kanye really needs a break – and I hope he does.
