Let me give it to you: It’s hard at first, and you get withdrawal symptoms. That’s when you realize you’re addicted. Because you can’t stand not knowing what everyone is doing, or posting, and it’s a party that you’ve voluntarily locked yourself out of.
But it gets better. The real world is all there for you to rediscover, your friends never left, and they are only a phone call, a text message, or an email away.
