I woke up this morning and after getting fully disgusted with my Facebook feed, decided now is the time to start another item on my 40 while 40 list. Currently off limits for the next 40 days (until March 31) are:
I also have notifications turned off for WordPress, but that’s mostly to keep me from checking the app on my phone. I would like to post more here, and this is more of a one-way conversation most days.
I don’t use Ello much, and I don’t really use Minds at all. Those I wanted to like, but it hasn’t quite worked yet.
Pinterest I usually don’t have a problem staying off of.
My big struggle is going to be Facebook. I get news there, I stay in touch with friends there, I connect with my family there.
I also get assaulted with people telling me how to live, think, and behave, and how what I do and think is stupid, juvenile, moronic, weak.
So I would love to trash my account completely, but I’m going to let myself get talked out of that one more time and take a break instead. It’s not a complete detachment from the Internet, just all the places that so obviously cause me pain.
I hope to get back to a daily writing habit here. I miss it, even though I wasn’t talking about much of any importance.
