Time for a Facebook Break?

5 Jul

july 4

For the past two days, I’ve had two different friends confide in me that they have had to take facebook breaks.  Here was the reason why:

They had begun comparing themselves to others.  They noticed girls who were losing weight faster than them.  They noticed people who seemed to have better lives and better families.  They saw people with two and three kids, when they were struggling to get pregnant.

Guys; facebook isn’t real.  We post pictures and images that put our best face forward. We usually only share the good.

Or, perhaps, reading through friends annoying updates is causing you in turn to become harsh and critical.

Friends; God’s word tells us to fix our thoughts on things that are pleasant.  So if Facebook is causing you to become negative, it may be time to take a step back.

Take a walk.  Spend time with friends in person.  Call someone you haven’t talked to in awhile.  Stop taking pictures of your kids to post on facebook, and play with them instead. 🙂  Life is meant to be lived, not to be spent surfing facebook while your kids are begging you to read them a story.

Facebook is great for keeping up with friends or promoting business, but remember that if it is causing comparisons or negativity, then it might be time to limit your use.

Blessings! 🙂
