I Need A Negativity Detox

If my phone is my hand, I feel compelled to check social media for the latest information to feed my addiction to negativity and outrage. I'm drawn to the negativity, like a flies to poop. I scroll through the comment section of a controversial article, even though I know it will contain gross and ignorant comments. I read these comments knowing it will make me upset and angry. I tell myself that I'm just reading it to stay informed and gain insight into how other people think, but can this be true if I do this all the time? It's a little sadistic, isn't it?
