In the wordless world
Everything you have a word for doesn’t exist in the wordless world for self-evident reasons, including of course media.
In the wordy world
In the wordy world of word-users, word is the medium without which there wouldn’t be any (media).
For completeness’ sake, let me add that it’s not just about media.
There’d be no word-users either.
Breathe and allow things to pass
You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to social media.
Power is sitting back and observing everything with logic.
If social media controls you means everyone with a smart phone can control you.
Breathe and allow things to pass.
