Cardi B recently posted a tweet about the unhealthy relationship we have with technology.

She encouraged teens to put down their phones and make some memories in real life.


Her tweet describes her younger years, and urges her fans to "live Life!"

"I was a lit ass teenager!I had maaa fun in school ,I used to go to hookie parties ,teen bashes,shop in soho for hours..These new teenagers is getting lame they too focus on the internet.Live life! couple years from now you should have memories bout yourself not a celeb."



One fan, @demiftcardi, replied to her tweet pointing out that it's not always easy to put your phone down and focus on real life:

"Some of us have depression Cardi 😔"



After seeing @demiftcardi's reply, Cardi offered some advice:

"A lot have depression cause ya be on the internet lookin at people with these fake perfect lifes, perfect body,perfect relationships.Depression is hard to shake off spend time with friends,close1 or with yourself do boards wit pictures of the things you dream make them your hobby."



Cardi's fans adore her frank honesty as much as her music.




Many agreed with Cardi's advice.




Several others brought up good points.




In the end, there isn't one single cure-all for depression, or the loneliness that we sometimes feel. Getting out and spending time with people who care about you is definitely a good place to start, though.

If only all the things we excelled at were also the very things we loved to do most. But sadly, that is not the way it goes.

Instead, some horrible force of the universe made you way better at, say, sewing the holes of pants than playing guitar. The universe can be a spiteful, fickle jerk.

In a perfect world, family has your back harder than anyone else.

In the real world, it can sometimes be your family that cuts deeper than anyone else. Intentional or not, the people closest to you have the ability to seriously super suck.

No, you're not the only one who has dealt with a mom who just, for the life of themselves, can't NOT be critical. Or a dad who just always seemed chronically underwhelmed by you.

Society is an odd conundrum when you attempt to wrap your head around it. This phenomena typically occurs whenever you witness a new trend or share experience and everyone seems to go along with it. Only much later, when you think about it with a bit of critical thinking, do you notice something might be off.

Going against society can be strained, difficult, like pulling back a sticker that's been on way too long, however sometimes it's necessary to get rid of what we probably shouldn't be so welcoming of.
