I deactivated my Facebook account. Lent was a big eye opener for me. (For those of you who are new to my blog, I cut out Facebook for Lent and surprisingly...I enjoyed not being there.)
The main reason I deactivated was I saw what a waste of time being on Facebook was. Not that I was on there 24 hours a day, but the time I spent on there I would always think in the back of my mind "That was 30 minutes I could have spent cleaning the toilet." Or "That was 15 minutes I could have spent reading with my children."
In my post-Lent return to Facebook it seemed I was seeing it through different eyes. I saw people disrespecting their spouses. I saw words get twisted and tempers flare. I saw feelings get hurt over misperceptions of other's posts.
And it dawned on me that I was taking time away from my family to contribute to something that was hurtful to people... intentionally and unintentionally. Which is a shame.
So I deactivated.
I think there are some people who think I am angry at them or others, That's not the case at all.
I just want to spend my time in the 'real world' with people who love me and whom I love. I want my conversations with others to be personal and intentions to be clear. I don't want to waste another minute.
