To Delete Or Not Delete

Facebook is a great thing. It can connect us to the world. It connects us to family members we want to stay in contact with, but we have difficulty finding time to do it. It tells us about what is going on in our town. There are bands playing and festivals to attend. We learn about many of those things through our social media. And then there are those addictive games. You just can’t wait to play again.

But then something happens. You find yourself spending way too much time on Facebook. You are arguing with individuals on your account. There is a time when you have to decide to delete or not to delete.

That happened to me a few years ago. Things were less than perfect in my life. The games were taking over my life. And I was making foolish posting decisions. Nothing awful, but they just weren’t me. So I decided to get all of that under control. I deleted the account. I don’t regret it. I shed some followers that weren’t where I was going in life. I remembered the ways I needed to deal with situations in my life. And then one day I decided I wanted to be on Facebook again. I found I didn’t need to share as much on social media. It was what it was intended for staying in touch with people, but not sharing everything.

So if you feel like social media is taking over your life take a break from it you won’t regret it.

  1. Nope it isn't I don't spend a lot of time on social media around 10-15 minutes of a morning and the same in the afternoon while waiting for Leo to get out of school.
