Since coming off Facebook I have taken real time to concentrate on my life - yeah, it's a small life: I have a very small circle of friends and family but it was a good push to concentrate on just that. No-more logging on to Facebook to be nosey at other peoples lives, no-more checking to see if someone/anyone had 'liked' my Facebook page, no-more impromptu anger over idiot statuses - it was a pretty good feeling.
In my first post about WHY I wanted to come off Facebook I tackled the subject of me being the one who posted boastful statuses, photo's and cryptic messages and also how I didn't want to be THAT person, when in fact I didn't like the people that done this also - go figure. For me, my main quest in life is to make amends in my life, to better myself and strive to be a better person and feel getting rid of Facebook does just this.
In all honestly, I feel better now I am not on it, sure it's hard when everyone is talking about a certain thing (ice bucket challenge anyone?) or arranging plans, but if anything it has been a real eye opener as to who might be my real friends - the ones that contact you AWAY from Facebook, and yes, I may have decreased my 'friends' by over 80% but the question I ask is "were my 'Facebook' friends, ever REAL friends in the first place"
I totally get why people are on Facebook and its great if you like/enjoy it and use it in the right way but I think I can safely say I wont be going back. So, as I realise I will never be invited to anything again, and have a very very small number of 'real' friends, I will never be tagged in a photo or wait around waiting for another 'like' on my status, I will be off in my real-life world, with my real-life friends.
