Facebook Free In 2019

For several months I have been contemplating how useful Facebook is in my daily life. I stumbled on a feature on my phone that shows how much time I spend on social media. I was aghast with what I saw. In that moment, I realized how hypocritical it is for me to enforce rules with my sons about time spent on their devices while scrolling through my Instagram feed.

During the time I spend on social media, I could be at a yoga class, making more recovery meetings, writing, or reading. I have had ideas about starting a podcast, but digging into Facebook friends accounts won’t help me get that up and running.

As a woman who has close to 7 years in recovery for alcoholism, I am beginning to find myself more and more interested in self discovery. Prior to that , I was eyeball deep in healing my body, mind and soul. Therapy! As that came to a close (or pause), I was surprised to discover writing as rewarding and enriching experience. WordPress alone has connected me with other creatives who inspire me. I learn from you all. I am grateful for that.

While fully engaged for decades, with my former lover, wine, I muted important pieces of me .

I am confident that divorcing social media may be helpful in discovering and nurturing these pieces whatever they turn out to be.

  1. This is a timely article for me, over the past week I have stopped my Twitter, Linkedin, Instagram, and 2 facebook accounts. I just don’t see the value in them. There are other things I’m doing as well, but it sounds like you and I are on the same page. Good Post! Thanks.

  2. I’m hearing similar thoughts from more people including myself. So much time is taken up by social media. Yet, I lived most of my previous life without it.I find myself growing tired of twitter, fed up with facebook (almost) and ignorant of instagram (due to technical glitches). Your plans inspire me to step back and consider more satisfying activities.
