I haven\’t been on Facebook since Jan. I admit that the first 2 weeks were hard. But I\’ve filled my day with other things to do and I don\’t miss it one bit. Getting off coffee and eliminating Facebook has done wonders for my health. I sleep much better at night.
I don\’t go in for the mentality of \”group think\” that Facebook seems to promote. It started out subtle, and then before you knew it, you were being brainwashed into all kinds of fake news, commentary, and public opinion. When did we become a society that has to be told what to think? We need professional pundits to tell us how to vote, what to think, what to wear, what we can read, and what we watch on TV. They tell us what brands we should use, what brands we shouldn\’t use…
No thank you. I m perfectly able to think for myself. I can read. I can even decipher bullshit when I hear it or read it. I don\’t need anyone \”coaching\” me. Yeah and sometimes I might not understand but let me figure it out myself.
I\’ve turned off the news. I no longer watch it or have it on. I listen to music or listen to books on Audible. So much better for my soul. No, I don\’t live in a cave – I see the news notifications pop up on my phone and that is all I care to know. If I choose to know more, I will read it. I am no longer a news junkie.
Not to get all preachy – (and it\’s not even a Sunday) bottom line – people are not happy. It\’s sad really. They hate. They argue. They make fun of others. Regretfully, I\’ve done it myself and it\’s not who I am. I\’ve allowed the present-day culture to turn me into someone I don\’t even recognize. (Read 1 John)
For everything in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
I just want to be a better me and getting off Facebook was a step in the right direction.
