Time for a Facebook break

February 4, 2018

Seems like it’s time for another break from Facebook. I intentionally tried to use it over the last two-plus months, but using it reminds me of two things. First, I have very little in common with most other humans.

Second, thinking about posting things on Facebook takes me away from the present moment. Instead of immersing myself in the moment I might think, “Oh, so and so on Facebook might enjoy a picture or little story about this.”

One thing I do like to do with Facebook is to try to encourage other people to be themselves — as one friend says, “Cheering you on” — but at this point it’s just easier to log out.
