Purging reinforces your intrinsic values
Many people spend too much time seeking meaning and validation from extrinsic motivators lead to more unhappiness and loneliness. This may show up as,
- Excessive social media use
- Comparing yourself to others
- The need for external validation
- Mob or group-think
- Bullying and shouting online, etc.
Ultimately you want to prioritize your self-care first, then your quality relationships, and finally your work and productivity.
