Sometimes I just want to quit Facebook. It’s too much.
I know some people who aren’t on it at all.
I know some people who come and go for various reasons.
I know many people who are on there 24/7.
I can’t decide which group I want to be a part of.
Sometimes I think there is danger in the time spent on it because I don’t want to overwatch other people’s lives happen, I want to experience my own. I don’t want to vicariously live through other people. I have a life that is worth something too.
I certainly have plenty going on and I like to share it with my friends on Facebook. It is an important source of info to connect with people near and far. I’ve learned about important people from my past and their deaths and joyful celebrations that would have otherwise fallen by the wayside: both for which I am truly glad to have known about.
But I don’t like how often I log on and scroll through my newsfeed. I don’t like hearing about every moment of every person’s life. I don’t like how much of an addiction it has become.
I don’t want to completely remove myself from it, because I think it has perks and advantages, but I do want to find a healthier balance than what I am currently experiencing.
What kind of boundaries do you take with social media?
