I've officially renounced Facebook, not because it's bad, but because I seem to enjoy it too much. It's like watching TV, I find myself looking forward to who is on and who I can reconnect with from my past. The problem being, my past is not filled with beautiful memories, and I find that with a lot of people who I couldn't relate to during my high school years, I still can't relate to them.
I realize that it's a great way to connect with old friends, and I've been in touch with people I haven't spoken to in decades, but it's all just an old chapter in my life, and I feel the pains and angst of high school come rushing back to me as I rush to see who wants to be my friend and who will talk to me. Kind of pathetic, actually. Not FB, but me.
Part of the problem is seeing my brother, smiling and enjoying life while he bails out on his family. This is a sordid chapter in my life, but something I'll never get over, and rather than revisit old wounds, I'd rather leave it be just not know.
Besides, you can get sucked into the vortex, wasting a lot of time stroking your ego, and the one thing I don't have a lot of is time.
I will say this-I'll miss it. Until then, thanks for reading.
