I joined facebook in November 2004.
Today, a bit of my freedom was reclaimed: my accounted is deleted.
Not logged out. Not uninstalled from my phone. Not deactivated.
Facebook didn’t make it easy, requiring a 30 day wait before the deleting 16 years of my online life.
I already feel freer to explore different interests and see what happens creatively with the extra time. I already feel more present. My mental bandwidth has already seen an increase.
I’ve justified my “why” for having facebook for a number of different reasons:
- I’ll need it to keep in contact with friends and family
- I’ll need a way to share the things I am working on
- I’ll need the groups to find a place to stay when traveling.
I’ve never really challenged those justifications. Now the delicious challenge becomes: “how might I do those things without facebook/social media?”
Excited to work out my inner resourcefulness muscle with this challenge.
To growth and love
