No more Facebook

After a long time pretending that Facebook was not taking control over my life, I finally listened to what God was telling me and cancelled my Facebook account. For the last 2 or 3 weeks, I did not enter my FB account and I didn't miss it and even found out I was feeling more peaceful and having more time to what really matters. I assume I like FB but I don't know exactly why. I know I have discovered some «friends» from my school or scout times but most of them were not that important at the time and are surely not important now. We have nothing in common and they are really not my friends, though in FB we pretend we are. When I say important, I'm talking about importance in my life. As a Christian, I am supposed to love everyone with the love of Christ but not everyone will be my special friend or will have a special place in my life. I was spending too much time looking at other people's lives and not spending time with my family and my true friends. I stopped writing letters and e-mails to special friends, I stopped writing in my blog, something I like to do, I stopped reading those special blogs I used to visit. But I finally realized that I don't want this for my life.

Good for you! Facebook and blogs can easily consume way too much time. I'm trying to cut back myself!
