I have made the decision to inactivate my Facebook account. While I have made some amazing friends and have a dozen (or so) friends from church on my page, the ultra-liberalism and negativity of Facebook has become overwhelming.
My life is extremely chaotic and full of serious issues that I have no choice but to deal with. From dealing with my own cancer diagnosis, my sister’s cancer diagnosis, and some legal issues my a couple of my sons are dealing with, Facebook doesn’t offer the support I need.
I did trial runs, if you will, by shutting off the account for a week or even just a weekend. I proved to myself, I didn’t need that social platform. True friends have multiple ways to keep in touch with me. I started posting more to InstaGram. I still can see pics of my friends and their children. I can get spiritual memes from K-Love radio as well.
In my opinion, Facebook has grown too big for it’s britches and I can’t in good conscious support that particular platform any longer. I have more time for my family and friends, in real life; not online. It also allows me for more writing here and focusing on what’s important in my life.
I appreciate those who continue to follow me on this crazy journey. There is definitely more to come….just bear with me.
