Yesterday I made a life decision. I came to the conclusion that I no longer wanted or needed social media in my life. I no longer have any form of social media unless this blog counts. But honestly in all fairness most writers I know wouldn’t be considered the most outgoing of people. (Not saying that only quiet writers are best, no sir or madame.)
My reclusiveness has given me peace. I feel as if a load has been lifted from my numb shoulders. It’s not that I dislike people or interaction, but I do believe the best sort of interaction involves direct contact with humans, not through a handheld device.
I have been questioned why I have made this decision and the answer is this: I want a simple, beautiful life. I don’t want to waste the precious moments I have been given on a vain keeping-up-with-the-Jones’ game that only makes people feel empty inside. Life isn’t about having someone follow you or like what you’ve said. It’s so much more than a blinking screen and endless streams of comments.
Imagine the world that could be seen without the visor of a phone. Such amazing things surround us everyday and it is all taken for granted.
I want to see all I can while I can. I know I am reclusive, quiet and odd, but for once in my life I feel completely content with who I am. And no one has even approved!
Have a beautiful day wherever you are and stay amazing.
Loads of Love,
