Today, I deactivated my personal Facebook account. And for the first time, I’m not sure if I’ll be back on there. Don’t get me wrong — I love technology. I love reconnecting with old friends. I love staying in touch with current friends. The Facebook platform makes it very convenient. But honestly, the last several months of glancing on there, I’ve been walking away slowly anyway. The reason is that its been so full of negativity – everywhere people are reeling from Trump being elected. I’m not stating I’m happy for it – far from it, but I just can’t stand the negativity. And people are posting about wars around the world. And the truth of the matter is that current friends get down on me for not appearing angry, or active about situations, or how I should get involved. All I really want to say is just “hold off” for there’s too much going on in my head right now. Everyone has a story. And so do I. I have things I need to sort out, big time. Things are not always pretty and rosy, but things are real, and I need to know this.
I’m going to trade some of my Facebook time for some blogging time. Some songwriting time — where I have writer’s block right now. Great. Argh!
