18th May 2017… D Day…

D Day! D day I realized I needed my life back and make a real decision. Time to take control again of my life and focus on the important things. Facebook dominated people’s lives for so many years now, and I’m one of them. Not Facebook’s fault, my fault. I allowed it, we allowed it.
I am no longer going to be active there. I rarely pay attention on people’s posts anyway, but when I do, I directly say my opinion to the one who posted it, and I don’t go around bitching about it. Unlike some people I know, they are so patronizing on Facebook, but very good in stabbing you in the back too. I really speak my mind and whether you like it or not, I will say it. How you read my post is your responsibility. Here’s how I deal with things on social media – As long as my name is not mentioned, I will not take it personally. But if you name and shame me, you are banned in my life forever! You won’t hear again from me. I am not a war freak person, but I will just pretend you’re dead. I do defend some people though esp if it’s an act of bullying or racism.  Other than that, I mind my own biz. So why am I leaving Facebook then? Because I have had enough! It became so filthy.

I have been receiving non-stop private messages from people who sell products like dietary supplements, natural pills (as they describe them), but I am not interested in buying nor selling them. First, I don’t believe in any pills. Second, I dislike any artificial vegetable or fruit processed supplements turned into pills. Nothing is natural about that. I do not reply  to them but they can’t seem to read between the lines. Find a way of selling without annoying people. My mother was the best sales person. She had a great technique in winning clients, and maintain friendship with them. And during her days, there was no internet. Meet people, talk to them. Organize a party and introduce your products. Anything in writing is always misinterpreted. Believe me, I’ve learned my lesson.

People become too familiar about each other’s business on Facebook to the extent of competing against each other. Who leads a better life kind of thing. They just keep topping each other. It makes you really want to puke sometimes. I call it Bragbook more than Facebook. I’m guilty of bragging too when it comes to my family. I brag about them all the time. Though we’re not perfect, they’re my treasure. 😀

It was nice reconnecting with so many friends in the past and I had a great laugh with you all, but Facebook didn’t really do anything good for me. I lost friends because of it. At least I can have a normal morning now without seeing 20 selfies from the same person.  Either her face, her fat legs, her senseless posts asking for attention – no more of those unpleasant poses.

Most of all, it makes me feel sad when you know some people well and they post the opposite on Facebook, like who is this person trying to be someone she’s not? I know one who is pregnant at the moment in her mid 40s, telling people she is ok but deep inside she is depressed. She’s been depressed for so long that she won’t even acknowledge it.  Yep, keep convincing the world honey because that’s what matters to some people, how the world perceive them. SAD.

Facebook made me sick already. I can no longer let any social network control my life. I need to be in control, and that starts now.

D DAY!  New beginning…
