In 2006, I used to get updated with my friends' "footings" from Friendster. Then one day, my friend " beat the drum for" Facebook, and I wasn't really intrested in it, because I thought having one account for "clues" is enough, yet I gave it a try. Logging-in the site was almost impossible coz I was crazy about Friendster then. After a few months, I totally neglected FB to the extent that I didn't even remember my username and password. When Friendster changed its settings, I lost all my mugs together with the memories that I posted there. Quite disappointed, yeah?
While getting nerve-racking schedules at work, I realized that I was having a new account in Facebook! Wow, I couldn't believe it...days, weeks, months and years passed by. Darn! - I was given over to this social network that it was so hard to refuse its "come-hither look." It became my shock absorber everytime I rant, my "simsimi" when I got no one to talk to, an online journal where I could show the whole world the latest about "me". Sometimes, I thought it was a great place to stalk (haha) as it was accessible anywhere. Well, I bet if you want gossips the "News Feed" is always there to blab you with the latest intrigues, success, failures, brags, break-ups, engagements and wedding proposals, travels, pictures of friends who have just updated their Macs and Iphones. See, it's very convenient!
But one day, I got knocked off with dippy, campy, kid-stuff, mind-boggling posts, "feed" had stuffed me. These pushed me to my limits and I decided to deactivate it....guess what-it felt like holding my breath while swimming in a glass of soda with "mentos", where I had to steal someone's oxygen tank for me to dive with my feet above water. Yes, it was "Herculean" and I couldn't recall how many times did I have to deactivate and reactivate that account. Wooohhh!
Two months ago, I made it! I was very proud of myself...now I got peaceful everyday struggles as these trolls have got no idea on my whereabouts. Cool! When I looked at my mirror, my "pimples" were gone. Thanks to G+ anyway, for fitting me in-at least even if I dont have thousands of friends in this site unlike I used to have in Facebook, I got a fitter life and much time to get focused on my spiritual journey instead of spending too much time in a social media which gradually debauched my spirit, and tripped me up from the right track.
