Since 2003 I have had Facebook, soon after I joined Instagram and everyday I started to use them more and more, sharing photos, liking posts and scrolling and scrolling and scrolling thought what I can only call useless information and photos and news. Never knowing if what is being shared is true and right.
Over the last year I have kept saying I am going to leave social media and turn them off but I would always come up with a reason not to. The big one I always said is, 'I need it for work'. but once my new centre manager took over I had no reason not to.
I used to spend hours scrolling through pointless stuff. Just needed to be looking and seeing. Very occasionally I would see something worth while. This also effected my time I would read my bible and connect with God.
In March I switched off Facebook and Instagram and I feel so much peace. And I have so much time. Being able to wake up and not grab my phone and check what has been going on. I have other ways to hear the news and events going on, but I'm not seeing what everyones had for lunch and cats falling off things.
I would encourage anyone to give it a try, my mind is at so much more peace, and I never find out the results to tv shows with out watching the show!!
My relationship with God is so much better and I'm sure I have not missed anything....
