How I feel about Facebook.

Thank you, Zen Pencils, for being awesome.

Edit: After posting this, I remembered all the reasons I had left Facebook in the first place. I do still occasionally go on my partner's account, if I am feeling lonely or disconnected, but I find it often ends up making me angry or sad. It is a place of opportunity and forward-thinking for many people, but it just isn't that for me.

In light of this, I have deactivated my blog's facebook page, and it will be deleted in two weeks time. I understand people may find this extreme - I got similar reactions upon deciding to delete my personal facebook profile nearly a year and a half ago. That's fine. I am not saying that facebook should not exist, or that it is not a good tool to use. It just isn't for me. I hope people will continue to support my blog and youtube account regardless of my personal views on this particular form of social media. I'm still me, I'm just not on facebook.

Love to all who read.

  1. I don't mind if you're absent from Facebook. Actually, I admire your strength and wisdom! It's important to be able to acknowledge what is toxic to us. I'm proud of people who are kind to themselves as you are :)

    1. Thank you! It's really lovely to get such a lovely comment back on this topic. I just realised the other day that removing myself from Facebook wasn't an act of running away for me, it was an act of separating myself from something that just doesn't serve me.
      Thank you so much for your support and kind words. <3
