Yvonne Jegede Fawole has one advise to help prevent depression - take a break from your phones sometimes.

Worried by the increasing number of entertainers battling depression, actress Yvonne Jegede Fawole, took to her Instagram page, to give an advice on how people can avoid being depressed.

“We wake up to our phones and the last thing we touch is our phones. Now our lives are based on why didn’t I get enough likes like I did yesterday? Am I losing my friends/fans? Don’t they like me anymore?

''They followed you because they saw you on tv or heard your song on the radio and not because you carry Louis Vuitton bags, fly a private jet, the kind of house you live in nor the type of car you drive.

''The more people put pressure on themselves trying to compete, trying by all means necessary to get one thing they cannot afford but they feel the need to because they feel that is what I need to do to get people to like me, then you endanger yourself and your self-esteem,'' she said.

She also warned people not allow the internet enslave them, and physically spend time with family and friends.

“Please everyone be careful out there, keep your phones away sometimes and spend time with your family and friends “the ones you can physically see” and don’t let the internet enslave you.

''Ps. This is to people who have people (who don’t care about them) to please'' she added.

The other day I watched a documentary talking about the millennial have become a group of people that rely on their phones(which I find myself included), every minute looking for validation from people who are just mere illusions and figures. The reason why you have 1000 followers and only get 10likes and “maybe” 1comment. We wake up to our phones and the last thing we touch is our phones. Now our lives are based on why didn’t I get enough likes like I did yesterday? Am I loosing my friends/fans? Don’t they like me anymore? NB- THEY NEVER LIKED YOU. PERIOD. They followed you because they saw you on tv or heard your song on the radio and not because you carry Louis Vuitton bags, fly a private jet, the kind of house you live in nor the type of car you drive. I’ve seen comments online about me being “broke” and “Yvonne shut up you don’t have shit” “Are you even a celebrity?” I don’t even flinch, because I will never post or write about my personal life online for nobody except it has to do with my work and it’s progress, whatever I do with my income or proceeds are none of anybody’s business. I’m not the strongest person online and I ain’t got nothing to prove either, especially your validation will not add value to me nor my bank account. The more people put pressure on themselves trying to compete, trying by all means necessary to get one thing they cannot afford but they feel the need to because they feel that is what I need to do to get people to like me, then you endanger yourself and your self esteem. Please everyone be careful out there, keep your phones away sometimes and spend time with your family and friends “the ones you can physically see” and don’t let the internet enslave you. #StayInTouchWithHumanity #ChocoLove Ps. This is to people who have people(who don’t care about them) to please
