Social media time out:

It amazes me how people say that they have no peace in their life but constantly be on social media. Why is it so important to let everyone who you really don’t know, know what’s going on in your life? You took another vacation so you need to post pictures for Instagram. You are single again and you need to send all the quotes and memes about single life on Facebook. How is social media bringing you peace? How is posting about your life daily bringing you peace? Have you ever read some of the comments people make on certain posts? How horrible can people be at times! Why do we need to let people that we don’t really know on social media know what’s going on in our lives? Let’s be honest how many people on your social media page do you talk to every week? How about every month? How is your life going to be different if social media wasn’t a factor and life wasn’t about likes? I remember a day without social media and life was a lot more peaceful. What has happened to us and allowing social media to become our life? Why is this okay? If you want peace then you need to limit your interaction with social media. Social media is not your life and it shouldn’t become your life. Take a time out on social media.

Social Media:

Well, I have been back on social media and I have to say that I won’t be on it like I used to be. It was so depressing and I wonder why people spend so much time on social media. I’ve missed some amazing things like wedding proposals, kids being born, and also birthdays. But other than that I didn’t miss anything at all. I use to be on social media when I was bored. Now when I find myself getting bored I start reading a book or doing something else that will keep me in a more positive mindset. I have limited my social media contact. I would be on it for hours now I’m just on it for minutes.

My peace:

Since I have been taking a break from social media I have noticed that my thoughts and life are a lot quieter. I mean don’t get me wrong social media can be good, but there are times when you’re wrapped up in it and you can’t get off. I have noticed that I don’t reach for my phone to check out what’s going on in other’s lives. I have noticed that there is peace within me. I don’t care who is dating who, who is divorcing who, and all this other nonsense. I’m having more connections with my husband, kids, and my real friends. I don’t miss all the gossip and drama. I was always on Facebook and Instagram. Those were my two main social media sites where I could be on there for hours. Even when this break is over I’m still not going to be on it as much. It’s too peaceful without social media. I’m just going to use it more for my blog and check on the family but I’m not going to be on it for hours at a time. Too much negative and I love my peace way too much.
