Monday Motivation – To Friend or Unfriend – A Social Media Woe

I have limited my time on social media because of all of the nonsense. If someone wants to unfriend me because of something I said, more power to them as they probably don’t speak to me on a regular basis anyway.

What does it even mean to be ‘friends’ on Facebook. 99% of my Facebook ‘friends’ don’t check on me or care what I’m really doing in real life. That is how I feel.

All I read is a lot of people being rude, calling each other names and showing no compassion saying things they would probably never say in person and posting articles from websites I’ve never even heard of.

Anything I post on Facebook I would say to someone face-to-face so of course I choose my words wisely and it’s never about just one person if it’s about any specific person at all.

I certainly can’t control what other people post on any social media platform or how they act. I don’t have to react to what is written. I can let what I read pass by me like a negative thought. The only person I can control is me!

I’m not responsible for how others interpret what I say or do ….only how I say or do.

Are we really going to allow social media to become a major stressor in our lives? We certainly don’t have to. 💕😊
