People spend most of their days on social media. It takes a massive part in their lives. In fact, most family and friends find it useful to keep in touch through social media.
But then again, the use of social media isn't just about communicating. It has evolved in so many ways. For some, it has become a platform where they can pretend to be someone else. Because of this, we have to be very careful. Mindful learning is something everyone must practice.
A person's portrayal of his life on social media is not the same as in real life. Even if we understand this, it's easy to wish that we were living their life instead of our own. This may be a simple case of wishful thinking, but it could be dangerous.

If you desire to be at the center of everyone's life, you may be exhibiting other selfish behaviors, like not caring about how others think or feel. But is this really you?
The chronic desire to be the center of attention all the time, also known as histrionic personality disorder, is exemplified by always having to be noticed and or given attention. When this attention is not provided, the person with the disorder may react severely. Sufferers are more prone to engaging in provocative or destructive behavior to gain the attention that they want.

Changing your behavior always brings about the hope that things will be better. Choosing to build positive habits is always a good start. But then again, building on a new practice is often the most challenging step to take.
The formation of new habits opens your mind to new perspectives, but it also presents itself as a challenge. Knowing that you need to instill new, better habits is always a good start. But implementing these changes is another challenge on its own.
The familiar challenge people are facing is the beginning of building that new habit. It's too hard to do. You look for motivation to go through it, but then it's never enough. Soon, motivation fades.
You tell yourself you need to focus, but willpower alone won't be enough to see you through too. There will be times when you are tired, and you'd be feeling weak.
Then the question is, how do you build a good habit?
The best way to build a good habit is by telling yourself you...

Most people who have lived years with someone with whom they are longer happy. And yet, they choose to stay. It is not just the comforting thought of being with someone, but it is the familiarity of the situation that makes them stay.

How do you deal with the things that cause you discomfort or suffering? How do you overcome the painful experiences and move on with your life? You must have tried to escape the hurt by doing so many other things to make yourself feel happy.
No one wants to experience discomfort, so we end up procrastinating. Instead of finding a solution to deal with the problem, we end up choosing what makes us feel comfortable at the moment.
Though experts say mindfulness activities could help lessen the pain, most people still believe that by avoiding the problem, it will just disappear. But does it?
