“Family is everything to me and I would love to see my home flourish as much as my career. We both have to agree on the best ways to manage our family and keep it away from the drama of social media.

“One could get trolled by fake social media accounts. One’s finance might also not tally with one’s popularity, and that would put unnecessary pressure on one or make one depressed.
“When one is in the public eye, one would lack privacy and be seen as a goldmine for people who want to leech on one’s platform for their own gains.”
