It's been 3 whole weeks since I said
sayonara to the ole FB..
I remember when I joined back in like 08
My dad had joined and had
convinced me to give it a shot.
Back in the day I had a Myspace.
But that fell off for me the year I went
to AI for college. I just wasn't into it anymore.
Facebook was a whole new world
pictures and posts and birthday reminders.
It was a fun social outlet
to help keep up with friends
and family that you didn't see often enough.
But as social media began to grow
so did the drama and the controversy
over everything. . .
people began using Facebook as a
clothing line for their dirty laundry.
It's like nothing was private anymore
Modesty in people had dissipated.
the ugly world was spreading
its hate all over one website.
There are a few reasons I decided
to leave FB.
One being the controversy.
certain topics get me fired up.
and to me voicing my view wont
do anything but fuel peoples fire.
It's strange to me how
a human can find themselves so safe
behind the keys of a computer.
A false account created
to protect their identity
but also to let them say hurtful
and judgmental things to people
they may or may not have ever met.
People are mean.
and social platforms like FB
are the ones that keep them going.
I mean its all about the money right?
and to get the money you need drama.
The second reason I left was
the slue of pregnancy posts I was
seeing. Not necessarily just announcements
but people who rely fully on government aid
talking about adding to their family that they
already struggle to take care of.
In my opinion just to receive a little more money.
It infuriates me.
& I was tired of
leaving that site everyday with so much hate
in my bones. So much anxity over
stupid shit that I have no control over.
Then I started thinking about how much
of my day was spent scrolling,
If I was a lunch I'd scroll, bored? scroll.
trying to fall asleep scroll.
It was just stupid to me how much
time was wasted on something
that never made me happy.
So I did it.
I deleted Facebook.
and I am happier than I've ever been.
I find myself reading more current events.
and paying attention more, you know to the real world.
shit that is going on right here right now.
Now Instagram is a different story.
I am a picture person.
I have always been.
In my spare time I love to do photography.
Intsta is the perfect spot for photo lovers.
It's a place I can share my passions.
it's limited on words and drama
and I can follow who I want
and not be forced to see what Sally's brothers sisters
nephews aunts cousin Sam posted 3 days ago about
the fight they had with Fred.
I hated that shit.
worst part of Facebook
besides the lack of privacy was
seeing shit you just didn't want to see.
So Instagram is where I am
it's where I'll stay.
If you'd like to follow along
you can find me here :)
I am private so if you send me a request
and I don't accept it send me an email
and I will get you added :)
