It feels great to have finally quit Facebook! I had been thinking about it for a while and the time finally felt right. I have been using Facebook less and less over the past year and a half and I realized that it was just a time suck. I would find myself mindlessly scrolling through my newsfeed, wasting hours of my time. I would get frustrated with all the political posts and the negative comments people would make. I decided that I didn’t need that kind of negativity in my life and that it was time to say goodbye to Facebook.
It was actually really easy to quit. I deactivated my account and then uninstalled the app from my phone. At first I felt a bit anxious, like I was missing out on something. But after a few days, I realized that I was much happier without Facebook. I didn’t miss scrolling through my newsfeed or seeing what other people were up to. I felt like I had more time to do things that I actually enjoyed.
I would encourage anyone who is thinking about quitting Facebook to just go for it. It feels great to be free from the constant distractions and negativity. You might be surprised at how much better you feel without it.
