Recently I stopped logging into Facebook. It’s something I’ve been mulling over for awhile now but didn’t feel like I could make that step into actually doing something about it until the end of last week.
I like to see what everyone is up to. I love seeing pics of family and friends. I don’t post many status updates, but when I do, it’s often fun and I like hearing what people have to say.
The problem is that things happen on Facebook that suck my energy. In some ways I guess there is TOO much information. Too many posts there to hook me into thinking about things that are probably don’t need to be worrying about. And I, for one, am totally over having my energy diverted into such activities.
So, I’m off it for awhile, until I figure out what I want to do with it. I know that other people use it without getting caught up like I do, so the problem lies with the way I am using it, not the website. I’m hoping that this, along with other small changes, will help give me back some more mental space for writing – because SURELY not clicking onto Facebook twenty times a day has got to free up some time. The world will keep going without me knowing what everyone else is up to from one minute to the next.
At least, I think so… 😉
