It seems lately I continually log into social media and find myself shaking my head or wanting to respond with something completely unacceptable. It was time to wake up and ask myself some serious questions. Do I alienate those people who feel they should always be at the top of my news feed? Do I respond with a comment that makes me feel better?
After the umpteenth time I read my news feed, wondered the intent of comments made and signed off - once and for all. I deactivated the account. Oh it's still there. I can log on any given moment and step right back into the 'mean girl' drama but why bother.
I took it a step further and removed Snapchat and all but two of the games I play with family and friends. I regained some control - and you know what? It feels marvelous!
There are so many impersonal relationships in social media. Oh sure. you can drop a quick note to say Hi. You can put up pictures to share. But where is the interaction? Sadly its not just friends - its family interaction too.
