Having taken on the step to stop using FB and instagram in September it’s worth a note in my diary blog.
It did make a big difference for the better. Less mindless screen time more real time. More being present. I didn’t miss friends updates either.
When I did go on near the end of the month I just looked for any updates of note. Nothing … just the usuals of hey I’m eating at… hey I’m walking here… hey look the sun set again !!!
But joking aside I did actually feel more connected at home, more present. I realised that Social Media is escapism. Just like drinking alcohol is.
But you soon realise that there is nothing to escape from… That what you have yourself in your life is excellent. You don’t need to subconsciously be stirred by people’s fantastic life’s into thinking you’re life needs more selfies, sunsets and food pics 😂..
I have uploaded all of my pictures to free google storage. Next stage is to delete FB.
