I deleted my Facebook account…when, why?


Hmm. I’ve become so  disconnected that I have no clue how long I’ve been off Facebook. I tried to blog daily about my experience deleting my Facebook account. Wait, what’s Facebook? Sorry, residual effects of technological ADD. I think it’s been about 10 days, which means my account will be permanently deleted in a few more days. I cannot wait. Be gone! Deleting Facebook has been a huge game changer for me. I use to spend the last hour, or hours…(shame!) of my day trolling the social network for ANYTHING that might add depth to my life. I feel pitiful in the idea of having to search so desperately for connection. I’m liberated in knowing that I don’t need Facebook or texting or even email to stay in touch with those I care about. The people I care about seek me out. These few real friends are far better than entertaining the great social network of acquaintances. I love that my absence from FB has inspired calls and texts saying they miss my presence. These are the people who matter. I ask you, Why do you want to have 300 friends when you already have a few friends who love you. Why entertain the masses instead of making a call to a family member or friend who really cares. Why keep these distractions? No judgement..just curious.
