There isn’t much time until my “Fastbook” (Facebook fast) and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t kind of freaking out. This is seriously a problem for me, and maybe on some pathetic level I am a social media addict. Is there such a thing?
I know “they say” people with addictive personalities usually go from one addiction to another, which is really kind of comforting to me because I have consistently been active on the Internet since AOL 1.8 . Clearly there isn’t a problem there 😜.
I keep stressing and dwelling about the things I am going to do “instead” of checking my Facebook. Like, when I wake up in the morning after I read the daily devotional on my phone and I have to use the bathroom. What am I going to read instead? When I’m sitting on the couch watching tv with the boys, when I get bored with whatever it is they are watching, what am I going to do instead? When everyone is going on with their lives and posting it all on facebook, how am I going to be able to keep up with it? How am I going to know if something happens? Someone dies? Someone is hurt or blessed? What am I going to do with myself!?!?!
I know most of my anxiety comes from being so habitual in my daily life. I mean, I might just have to use my brain and come up with something productive and completely different than my usual routine and that is really putting a lot of stress on me, silly as it sounds. There is a method to my madness, just as their is with anyone else. And I have made a decision to reformat it and I am really freaking out about it.
