She called it "immediate anxiety" when she opens the social media platform.

Among the many high-profile celebs who have deliberately kept away from social media, newly married Hailey Baldwin Bieber recently opened up on how much she enjoys staying away from it when she takes a break from it every few months. 

Hailey Baldwin Bieber who secretly tied the knot with singer Justin Bieber posted on Instagram in the form of a story, how she is not immune from feeling the effects of social media negativity. 

She called it "immediate anxiety" when she opens the social media platform and wrote: "Being off Instagram is the best thing ever. Whenever I take breaks from it I feel so much better so much happy [sic] as a person.. the second I come back on I get immediate anxiety, I get sad and I get worked up."

In another slide, she named some of the benefits of Instagram, including the ability to "stay in touch and interact with others," but sometimes, the ends don't always justify the means. "The negativity screams so loud," she wrote.

She then continued to say how Instagram takes a toll on her and her relationship with others. She wrote, "It's hard to focus on your well being and mental health when each time you open Instagram someone is tearing apart your job, or your relationship or essentially any of the things in your life that are positive."

She added: "I just don't believe we're called to live a life where we're so easily caught up in strangers opinions on something they have NOTHING to do with. We need to take a step back and realize we need to express more love and encouragement to one another instead of consistently tearing people down and judging."

"I won't let people make me feel like I'm doing something wrong by enjoying my life and being happy. The world has enough hatred, hurt and pain as it is, the last thing we need is more negativity, hate, and division," she said.
