During my blogging break, I came across this post, “Reclaiming my time,” by Black Burgundy. I can relate to this post, due to when I was totally on social media one time many years ago, when I was in my 20’s and this is why I share this post. This is also why I was always wary about Facebook when I came back again, some years ago, but a lot had changed since then and I wasn’t like that now, as I was then.
I came back to Facebook, because of a nail course I was doing at the time, that encouraged us to go there. If it wasn’t for that, I would not have been back and this is why again, I can relate to the blog post I am sharing.
Although Black Burgundy’s post refers to more than just Facebook, I am only talking about Facebook because that was all I used one time, besides when I blog here. I don’t feel the pressure to post on my blog, compared to the different pressures with Facebook and because I have changed so much and I don’t rely on Facebook, I can easily hate Facebook.
When I was away from Facebook even more less, (if it couldn’t get any lesser, it did,) I felt the calmness again.
I was thinking of originally going on it just once a month and then reviewing how I felt about it 3 or 4 months down the line, ignoring my gut instinct to closing it down. But in the end, I wasn’t going to ignore my gut instinct and with the annoying chain/spam messages I received again, I called it a day and closed down my Facebook account.
