Today I celebrate three years without a personal Facebook profile.
Regrets? None.To be honest I do not even remember how it felt having a profile and being addicted to it.
It was funny how I made the decision.One day I simply said to myself:
- Do I really need to spend hours viewing pics/status about people that I do not even know? Simple answer: no.
- Do I really need to spend hours trying to show people how amazing is my life? Simple answer: no.
- Do I really need to spend hours believing that people around me are having such an amazing life or terrible one and constantly complaining about it? Simple answer: no.
Friends/People annoyed by the fact that I don’t have a Facebook account. So sorry (lying).
People do not remember my birthday or my surname – That’s so interesting. Our device/social network platform IS our external hard drive.
Free time – I can use that to study, cook or cuddle my cat…or husband.
No pressure to share everything.
When I meet friends in UK or Italy I have actually something to share and say.
I have a private and real (happy and simple) life. I don’t have to show my OMG amazing life.
I am not involved in stupid and useless catfight on the web.
I am in touch with real friends in an old and simple fashion way.
I am not obsessed with other’s life. No stress.
I just remember few important birthdays.
Sorry Zuckerberg, no more money with my personal data.
So less virtual happiness – more real one. Peace!
