Facebook – how does it make you feel?
With progress comes change, choice and challenge. Here the challenge is to adopt or develop new methods and modes of being, to live with such changes.
A colleague this week emailed me some information about current Psychological research on the use of Facebook.
The research indicates that the use of Facebook is related to depression – through people comparing themselves with others.
I reflected that Buddha offers some Psychological medicine for this in pointing out the importance of MUDITA – ‘Joy With and For Others’.
When others are doing well, try having JOY for them rather than feeling envy, resentment or depression.
SHARE THE JOY!! John B
