Its funny how when I step away from social media for a while people question it saying “where have you been?”. Yet I haven’t actually seen most of the people in person in a very long time. It just makes me laugh.
I love social media and hate it all at the same time. It is great to keep in touch with people I wouldn’t normally see, especially family. At the same time it is not normal to have 326 “friends”. I have met most people on my friends list at one point in my life but do I actually know them? No.
Since I have been feeling this way I decided to take a break. I still have my phone so I am not completely disconnected but I just need a break from the unimportant nonsense people are constantly posting. There are much more important things in my life right now than facebook, twitter, pintrest, etc. I think I have social media overload.
Taking a step away has definitely made me feel more present at home. Stuff gets done. I can spend time with my kids and actually feel present. It has been really nice. That’s not to say that I wont go back but at this moment in time I am good.
