I’ve been off Facebook for a little while now. I’m a programmer and some of the work I do require me to build Facebook integration so I have an account; but the account is linked to no-one.
One day I just woke up and realised how little value Facebook had in my life. All it did for me was show me how amazing everyone else’s life is and mine was pretty bland. At least that is how it seemed.
First couple of days I felt naked, no way to stalk all the people doing amazing things, eating amazing food, always in the gym… and now it’s like my mind has reset. The people I see and actually speak to are the ones I care about now.
Now I need to battle this smart phone and the “always available” life it brings with it.
Thanks for this great read!
