Kyla Shares Why She Temporarily Took a Break from Social Media

R&B singer-songwriter Kyla opened up about her anxiety and the reason why she recently left the world of social media, even for just a few days.

 “I deleted my IG and FB 3 days ago. I felt like it was adding to my anxiety,” she said.

Social media diet

Kyla admitted that what caused her to take a social media hiatus was seeing things that led her to compare herself to others, which she called “the thief of joy”:

“It’s nice to post pictures of your achievements and stuff like that–and get recognized for it. But I just feel like every time I would open it, someone is passively bragging about an accomplishment, travelling at this time when we can’t travel, getting new projects, etc.”

Two days later, Kyla shared her thoughts about self-love and the effects of the pandemic on people physically, emotionally, and mentally.

She eventually re-activated her social media platforms, citing the reason that she needed it to connect to her family. She also reflected on the pros and cons of social media: “It has its benefits. But on the flip side, it can also trigger some emotions that can cause our confidence to take a sudden nosedive.”

R&B collaboration

Kyla has been working on a video for the song “Undeniable,” her recent collaboration with fellow R&B singer Jay R. You can now listen to the song on major streaming platforms!
