I’ve been thinking a lot about facebook. Which is ridiculous, but I have loved social media since the very beginning. I find it as a nice way to connect with people who I don’t see on the regular. But here is what I discovered as of late. The people I thought were friends on social media AND in real life….. most, not so much. I did something I have never done. After the ex refused to turn the child and the people I thought were friends didn’t even care I DELETED. That might not be a big deal, but I HAVE NEVER DELETED ANYONE. EVER. I decided to lighten my facebook friends by over 200 people. Even people who had been my close friend just a year or two before.Hard times really show you what type of friend people are actually.
I know I have been a shitty friend in some ways, but I also know there are some people who failed me miserably. Family and close friends who I valued and thought were like way up there on the friend hierarchy. It hurt. It all hurts. I’m tired of hurting!
So I decided something today. I am going on a social media hiatus. Has anyone ever done this? I don’t know how long it will last, but I need to cleanse my life. I’m too sensitive to all the negative people and comments. I need a break. Boundaries. I’m doing it one step at a time.
