Soon the new school year begins.
I know what this means. I will grieve the summer’s end, the change of a season. The house will be quiet–but empty. The sadness is looming. The tears will be falling. I try to reflect and to focus on gratitude.
With this beginning I’m wondering what to do about Facebook. The more I stay away the more I don’t want to go back. Lately when I scroll the news feed I can hardly stomach it. I stare and ask myself, ‘Why am I doing this?’
They say everything in moderation. I’m wondering if moderation is really possible (for me). I’m not convinced the positives of social media outweigh the negatives. The human soul is made for connection–but not for such a constant exposure.
The introvert in me can’t stand the noise or being around so many people at once. The extrovert in me loves being able to nurture existing relationships and create new ones.
Which side of me wins and what is there to lose?
