I deleted my Facebook account about two years ago. While the site had definitely started to grow stale and I deleted it in the middle of midterms, I’ll be the first to admit that my motivations behind leaving were much more than avoiding lame online gaming invites and working on my time management skills.
Truth be told, Facebook was making me sad. I had a string of pretty spectacular collapses of both the romantic and friendship variety and knowing what those people were doing, where they were going, who they were seeing and what they were thinking at every second of every day was putting a damper on my own life that would clearly be abated if I just … didn’t know those things anymore.
So, Lydia readers, let’s discuss. Have you un-followed ex friends and partners? How did it feel? What about choosing not to follow people who are currently in your life but are just your social media soul mates? Do you ever feel guilty or gotten into an argument about it. I want to know! So, sound off in the comments below.
