Decluttering my mind

WordPress is helping me avoid Facebook.
I’ve spent too many time there and the environment is so toxic, so monotonous. You see all the people you are no longer in contact with sharing their happiness and accomplishments. I look at myself and what do I have? It’s not that I don’t have anything to be proud of but the comparison kills me. My competitive side really shows. I admit it, I sometimes feel jealous. It’s a trait I’m not proud of but, alas, I have it. I might as well don’t put myself in situations where I can be jealous because of the feelings that arise.
I need to heal and focus on personal growth, not on pictures of my friends baby or violent videos. I still use Messenger to keep in touch with my friends but I finally stopped scrolling.Since I stopped I started avoiding Facebook, I feel more confident and secure. More positive and balanced.
It’s a matter of taking care of my mental health and not waste time watching cat videos and motivational quotes. There is also the issue of graphic images. On WordPress, it’s much cleaner. Everyone chooses the most beautiful picture to post. Reading is wonderful for me. A writer should always read a lot. I’ve been getting a lot of inspiration from other people. I have exchanged kind comments. It’s different here.

I hope to stay around for a long time.

Writing as much as I can is my goal. Writing soothes the soul and quiets the mind. There's not much to say about me, my words talk louder than any description that I can make.

  1. I’m right there with you. I can spend so much time on Facebook, for no real reason! Usually, the more time I spend there, the the more my mood plummets. I recently removed the app from my phone so that I have to be on my computer to use Facebook, which helps me spend less time there. I’ve noticed quite the difference. On WordPress I’ve found that the community and the shared experiences we have to be very beneficial. I’m glad you are reaping the benefits!

  2. I am also trying to cut down alot on it and when I am on it I have deleted so many people and negative pages that I think I have created a more positive type of Facebook for myself. x

  3. Hi Scarlett, I know eactly what you mean! And facebook is so superficial on the whole, no one posts about their ‘miseries’ or setbacks. Thank you for the follow, happy to reciprocate and I see Andy, an online friend of mine is following you too, so that’s lovely.
