What Happened When I Deactivated My Facebook Account

I have so much more time back in my day.

Instead of escaping to the digital world, I’m capturing the present reality in more vivid detail than ever before.

I am connecting with people again.

We just became each other’s “followers”, which resulted in passive engagement with one another’s lives. Now, I am enjoying actively building stronger relationships.

I feel less stressed.

It doesn’t take long before “out of sight, out of mind” is a beautiful thing.

People reach out to me again.

It was nice returning to this long-forgotten way of life, when people talked directly to one another instead of blasting their updates to whole groups of people.
