I have made a decision to take a break from Facebook. It was a tough decision, and I am not sure how long I will last, but I think that it is something that is necessary in my life right now.
Recently, I have realized how much time and energy goes into keeping up with social media. It has really been affecting my thinking and the way I feel about myself. I am finding that it is affecting the way I look at myself. I look at other’s lives and feel a pang of jealousy or inferiority. I listen to people’s comments on my posts, and for the most part, they are positive, but every once in a while, I will get a judgmental snark or jab. I get private messages telling me what I need to do to be a better person, attract more men, better my pictures, etc, and it is getting to me.
So, although there is a LOT of good resources, information and friends on Facebook, I think that it is time for me to just to take a step back from the drama and just be me for a while.
