The fear of the unknown can keep you stuck in a toxic relationship for a very long time, but you shouldn’t.

24-Hour News Cycle
Spending more time watching and reading the news lately? While keeping up with the news is important, it can easily turn into an unhealthy obsession. In addition, one commenter suggested that by turning off the news, people could also help fix “90%” of culture war problems and focus on the real issues in life.
Having to be First
In our fast-paced world, it's easy to become obsessed with the idea that being in a hurry is a sign of success. But one Redditor reminded everyone that it's okay to take things at a slower pace and be patient, writing, “It's okay if you beat me to the pump, or if you beat me to the grocery checkout line. It's okay if you get to the freeway exit before me, or pull in front of me on the highway. I'm patient, and it's a virtue.”
Everything Celebrities are Doing
It seems like everyone is trying to mimic celebrities in every aspect of their lives, with one commentator labeling it as “celebrity worship.” Another person chimed in to say that people are obsessed not only with celebrities but also with “influencers, streamers, and any other random person with a webcam.”
Many Redditors on the platform expressed agreement that the modern-day obsession with work and productivity is unhealthy, emphasizing the importance of taking regular – rather than occasional – breaks.
Social Media Image
As social media continues to dominate our lives, our online image has become more important than ever before. But this has led many people to create a false reality on social media, and when you meet them in person you find out that they’re “incredibly miserable.”
Each Others Lives
“Seriously just let people live as long as they’re not hurting anyone just leave people the f...k alone,” wrote one individual, to which another added, “Yep, I don't care what or who you are. Just be a decent person and don't try to meddle with my life and we'll be cool”
One person shared an interesting perspective regarding the modern-day obsession with smartphones, writing, “It's one thing to keep yourself busy, it's another to never let yourself be bored. Being bored is important sometimes, it makes you think/helps clear your head. Phones make it ridiculously easy to never let yourself get bored, to the point where it ain't healthy.”
