Social Media Freedom

Leave a comment

If you missed the explanation post, I gave up social media for Lent this year. It’s been 3 weeks and let me tell you…..I feel FREE.

Ok, maybe freedom from servitude and itty bitty living space isn’t exactly the same feeling. But it’s a pretty great feeling. It really is freeing to not constantly be checking my phone, worrying about what everyone else is up to, and trying to make my life look perfect. Believe me, it is far from perfect. And this has been surprisingly easy, though not a total piece of cake. The hardest part has definitely been breaking the habit of constantly picking up my phone to check Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Well, that, and missing photos and videos of the most adorable nephew ever.

My desire to post photos has not really been curbed at all because I have done some fun stuff lately, especially attending a beautiful wedding last weekend. In all honesty, though, no one is missing those pictures (except maybe my mom, who just likes to keep up with my life because she cares).

I’m not to the point yet where I want to rid myself completely of the social media handcuffs, but I think I will at least not put the Facebook app back on my phone. That will at least help with the time wasted scrolling down my news feed and caring too much about what is being posted.
