Happy Groundhog Day! I sense I’ve complained about the topic of today’s post before. Possibly in these exact words. Welcome to the Mystery Spot, SPNFamily.
This is me on social media these days:
Part of me really wants to walk away from Facebook for at least a week. (Month, year, life…) But every time I get to the point where I decide I’m really going to do it, something happens to pull me back in.
Friends. I have friends there. And they’re helping me get through this wreck of a year.
In the course of my typical day, I don’t see anyone I am not related to. I am generally okay with this, but sometimes I need support from outside sources. I need to hear that someone else is feeling what I’m feeling. Not even that they’re there to listen to me, because 99% of the time I’d never take them up on that. Just that I am not alone in my drifting.
And sometimes I just need to step outside of my head and look at some cute pictures of babies or animals. The same reason we all use Facebook.
I continue to miss 43 Things, though. Now that was social media at its finest. A group of people committed to growing and doing and becoming. That’s my kind of social network. I will never not be doing 43 things.
