It's not you, it's me

1. Time-consuming.
Instead of being engaged in conversations or spending quality time with Dave or friends I'm scrolling through my FB app.
2. Stop the comparing.
We're humans, we do it and I will continue to compare myself to others but I don't need another platform to do so.
3. Jealousy.
Let's face it-you dislike some of your "friends" on facebook and are jealous of the persona (whether true or not) they exude on there. I don't want to wish I had things I don't. I have a good life and I should be content. 
After spending 5 days disconnected on the cruise I came back and felt like this was the perfect time to break up with Facebook. I had already detoxed so why not go a step further? I logged on Monday evening after returning home and was just overwhelmed with all I missed. I was also upset by some things I saw-and that shouldn't happen. If I'm comparing myself to others, and getting upset over announcements and updates, maybe I should take a break. I've taken a break from Facebook before and came back but what's the point? I keep in really good contact with the people that mean a lot to me. I get snapchats, instagram pics, texts, emails, facetime, phone calls, so why do I need facebook if it's only to see what non friends are up to? I'm not saying I'll never go back but I think I need a good long healthy break before I think about logging back on.
What are your reasons to have or not have Facebook?

  1. We broke up just over 3 years ago and it's one of the best decisions I have made. I quickly learned who my best friends were because they actually made an effort to keep up with me. It's a great decision girl.


I love hearing from you so please leave a comment, however keep in mind "Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."
