3 Revelations After Quitting Facebook
I’m off Facebook. It’s the right choice for me, but maybe for you too.
It started in January by deleting the app, so if I wanted to look at Facebook I had to go through a web browser and login every time.
However, I realized in no time at all that much time was more than I wanted to be on Facebook.
Here are three revelations I’ve had since logging off Facebook.
1. Genuine Surprise
It was a Sunday morning and a church member told me, “You probably already heard (because it is on Facebook), but my daughter had her baby, it’s a boy!”
I had not heard and I was so happy for him and for his family. Wonderful news! Genuine surprise. I think I caught him off guard with how happy I was and yet it was an experience that confirmed early on I liked my decision.
Now when someone tells me some news or asks did I see something, I can say no and with genuine interest learn from someone and begin a conversation face to face.
2. People Noticed
After awhile, I started to get emails and messages asking if everything was OK. “Haven’t see you post anything in awhile? Are you OK?”
Like Descartes said, “I post, therefore I am.”
