#FacebookFree

My last post was on July 4th, coincidentally the same day I deleted my personal Facebook account.

Take in mind, it wasn’t a *soft* deletion aka simply deactivating the account.  It was a *HARD* deletion: Unfriend everyone, untag every photo, and deactivate.

After going *ghost*, I noticed an improvement in most aspects of my life:  I became happier, fitter, and more productive.

Rejecting the Facebook cult allowed me to focus my time and energy on myself, instead of other people’s bullshit.

No longer did I feel compelled to argue with people misguided on the 2nd Amendment, or how the 1st Amendment protects your right to say anything no matter how offensive.

I stopped judging people for their abhorrent social media diarrhea,  which was made evident in their posts to effectively boost their self-esteem with “Likes” and “Comments”.

I became more focused and decided to live my life on my own terms.  My business tripled in production: I wrote 3x more insurance premiums in the last 4 months than I did the previous 7.

Is my increase in productivity a directly correlated result in becoming Facebook Free?  I cannot exactly say *yes* or *no*.  What I can say is that I am definitely feeling more connected with the world, which is ironic because that’s what Facebook was supposed to be all about.

I feel closer to my friends and family.  I pay attention to the things that really matter to me. I decided to do more with life to improve the quality of living in the world around me.

Here I offer an analogy:

When the world around you is burning,
would you stand there and watch,
put out the flames,
or add fuel to the fire?

Are you going to let yourself get caught-up in a sense of fake activism by “Liking” and “Sharing” every page in support of a cause?

Would you be willing to let the world turn into a huge pile of burning shit because you were too busy scrolling down and seeing who was doing what?

How long before you decide to facilitate the change in the world you want to see, not on the Internet, but on the streets?

I challenge anyone who wants to make an improvement in their life to go #FacebookFree.

See where it takes you.
