I'm Quitting Social Media

I’m quitting social media for 30 days. I will reassess on June 1.

Fuck it, I’ve had enough. It’s one of my goals for this year, but I’ve been putting it off for the “right” month.

May 2019 is the right month!

This is gonna be a short post, but I just want to announce it to make it official and to get myself to commit…


Why?

After going on Twitter today, I could feel the negative emotions come over me - mainly issues from comparison of other people.

I can also feel myself tying my own identity to Twitter. Happy when I get likes and comments. Sad when I don’t, or sad when I see others having success...

Rules

I’m already pretty much off Instagram, although I do browse it here and there. On Facebook I use the News Feed Eradicator so that’s pretty much worthless as well.

So rules are… No Facebook, no Instagram, no Twitter, no LinkedIn, no Tinder/dating apps. No matter what.


The only social media I will be able to use is YouTube, but I’m not allowed to look at the comments of others videos. I want to focus on creating and I don’t have much of a following there anyway.

Ok I’m excited as fuck to do this… I will report on my experience soon!
