Why I Left Facebook


I recently took about a 6 week hiatus from Facebook.  Like most of you, I had deactivated my account before but this time was different.  I possessed a very strong urge to pursue my solitude, and Facebook just didn’t fit into the equation.  The months leading up to my break, Facebook started to feel more like more a chore and less like a source of entertainment.  The social media app that was designed to bring people closer together started to make me feel strangely alienated from everyone, including my “real life friends”.  I noticed that spending time on Facebook started to drain my energy and shift my focus onto things that were not important.  I started to be left with a very dissatisfied taste in my mouth and it shouldn’t have been that way.  Here are some of the reasons that I was able to pinpoint that led to my Facebook “detox”:

Know Your Worth


Oftentimes when people don’t choose you, it has nothing to do with you.  The truth is, some people don’t even love themselves enough in order to have the ability to choose themselves.  They’ll tell you that you have too many requirements, that your standards are too high and that you don’t make it easy for them.  Re-read the last part of that last sentence:  You don’t make it easy for them.

Looking Back


Note: I wrote the following approximately 3 months ago, when I was just beginning a new temporary working assignment.  It was my first time in a full time job since before I'd gone back to school, and I had a lot of doubts about my abilities and effectiveness.  The job opportunity turned out to be a really awesome experience, and I am excited at how far I have come in such a short period of time.

Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself



It’s been awhile, but I’m back, and happy to be here I might add.  I may know some of you from the world of blogging, some of you from social media (as far back as MySpace lol), some of you I may actually know in real life and some of you I may not know at all.  Whatever the case, I’m happy that you’ve made your way here to visit my blog.
