Self-Imposed Facebook Hiatus

No Facebook

 

I’m going to preface this post with the acknowledgement that making a bold, public statement about giving up Facebook (or any kind of social media) is like claiming that you’re never drinking again. It’s a statement usually arisen from some kind of negative experience or episode and is quickly overlooked and glossed over once the sting of that experience or episode is nothing more than a distant memory. That said, I’m still going to go ahead and make it. I’m making the decision to take a self-imposed break from Facebook. My aim at this point is to make it to one month, and then we’ll see.

There are a number of reasons I’ve decided to do this now, most of them personal and driven by the desire to protect and preserve my mental and emotional wellbeing. But also the fact that it is just such a massive time waster and time is something that I really need to learn to manage better right now.

So from the 1st of August, I’m out. Let’s see how long this will last.
