The other day I said good-bye to Facebook for the 2nd time. I only deactivated it so I wouldn’t lose my pics, but I have no intentions of ever returning to it. A year ago, I reactivated my account and gave it a good year to see if it changed into something that was right for me. Before that I deactivated it for 2 years. Unfortunately, it still isn’t something I want to put any effort towards since it brings me more negativity, sadness, & discontentment than happiness & joy.
The more I think about it, the more I realized this was the right decision for me. Sure I’ll miss the awesome deals, great coupons, & free product offers but that’s about all I’ll miss. A lot of people won’t understand that I’m eliminating Facebook because I need one less distraction in my life, how it isn’t something for me, how it brings me more negativity than positivity, & why I don’t want to be a part of the community.
Decluttering isn’t just simply cleaning out your material possessions, it goes a lot deeper. For me, decluttering my life means clearing out anything that doesn’t add value to my life which has included: physical possessions, unwanted distractions, deactivating Facebook, retraining my inner voice to be more positive, eliminating unhealthy habits, toxic relationships, & deleting digital clutter.
Life changes as we grow, which is why decluttering your life is an ongoing journey. What does decluttering your life look like?
