I ripped off the band-aid. I deleted my Facebook account.
I have been going back and forth about wanting to, and saying I will, but then checking it multiple times a day. Now I know I am not the biggest FB junkie there is. There are for worse offenders that I call friends and family, but I needed to let it go. Reading Emily Anderson's blog post finally gave me the push I needed! Thank you!

I'm tired of caring about what other people are doing, eating, buying, etc. Nor should they care what I am doing. I find myself posting something every once in a while just because I haven't. Pointless.
I'm tired about getting news about my family and friends from FB. If you have something important to share you should send an email, text, or CALL ME. If you don't it must not be that important. We need to get back to connecting deeper with people and learn to communicate properly again. We also need to learn to keep certain information private.
I'm going to spend more time working on me and my relationships and getting things done around here, rather than wasting time playing on FB. It's addicting, but its time to break free. I'm feeling very good about this decision, and I even have my darling husband joining me! Facebook free 2012!
