Week 10: Unplug to Recharge

Do you ever get tired reading and looking your Facebook feed? I do. Although Facebook is a great medium to stay connected with friends and families, it could also harm your ego. Maybe not you, but it's true to me. I know it's a sin to get envy with others but I can't help but pity on myself whenever I see post of my friends with their achievements. It will only make myself compare to them no matter how I convince myself that them too has issues in life to handle.

Another thing with social media, specifically Facebook, there are just too many negative things buzzing around online: sex, accidents caught on camera, personal status that is actually insignificant and so on.

I admit there are so many things I learned and discovered through social media. One of the reasons why I cannot delete my account. But I've deactivated my Facebook account countless times but found myself reactivated it.

When I found myself feeling depress with others success (I know this way is a BIG mistake), I simply stop looking my account. I actually deleted the app on my phone so that I am not tempted to read feeds. But when I feel like I accepted the fact and just be happy for others then that's the time I open my Account.

Sometimes we need to unplug our self, especially if we are fed-up with so many things. I think this is one of the best way to recharge.
