Well, it’s been a month since I wrote this post on my social media sabbatical — I thought I should give an update as to how that’s been going…
In a word: freeing. I have felt so much happier and more tuned in to my real life. My relationships, hobbies and my work have gotten much more attention since I haven’t been spending time on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. So, have I missed those platforms or felt the urge to jump back into my old ways? Surprisingly, not really at all! I’ve truly enjoyed the time away.
Last night I posted on Instagram for the first time since my self-imposed break. And it was because I genuinely wanted to share a picture, not because I felt compelled to. I also noticed that I didn’t feel the urge to scroll indefinitely or pay attention to likes/comments. I think I may stop back by IG occasionally, but I’ll be continuing my Twitter break for a while longer. I definitely don’t plan on ever getting back on Facebook (ha!)
+ the photo above was an accidental one I took (no editing)…I thought it was kind of cool! :)
