Single Mom Slice Of Life:
What I Learned From My Facebook Fast
The elections may be over, but now the world – and by the world I mean Facebook – is still filled with arguments: Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays, or gun control depending on which group of friends you read. I was beginning to actually look forward to the boys screaming at each other over whether Stupidhead or Butt Nugget was a worse name to be called when I realized, I wasn’t being thrown into arguments online – I was voluntarily subjecting myself to it. Add to that that nearly every post was being taken personally and usually by people I hadn’t even been thinking about when I wrote it. And yeah, okay, maybe I took a few postings (7) that maybe (definitely) had nothing to do with me, to heart as well.
So, in an effort to find the good in life, I unplugged from the bad. I made a conscious effort to not check Facebook for a month.
