So I failed at giving up Facebook. Really, I never succeeded at actually beginning to give up Facebook. I deactivated but when I realized that all you had to do was sign back in to get your account going again I realized I wouldn't have the strength to stay at it for long. I still find myself signing in just to sign in and see what is going on way too frequently. So I figure I will try in baby steps. I will give up Facebook for Lent and try to concentrate on spiritual reading and going to confession as much as I can this Lent. I will keep Facebook Messenger since this is my main way of talking to my Mom but the whole of Facebook I will avoid this Lent.
God bless you!

This is something that folks don't seem to understand. I have been getting a lot of why on earth give up Facebook? Basically, I have zero will power and it is a time sucking, brain cell killing, poor use of my day. That sums it up. Now whether I can truly do this, we shall see. I have given people until Sunday to let me know emails or cell numbers so that I can keep in touch outside of the only way I have communicated in years. I will document here if I succeed or fail and how my days go without Facebook. If I fall into a withdrawal induced seizure or something over lack of following friends and people I barely know up to the very second of their posts, I will try to write an update on here from my hospital bed. Wish me luck.
