Lets commemorate the day I deactivated IG and Twitter –> 28th Sept 2021 a date to remember LOL.
The idea to do this has been at the back of my mind for the longest time but I always thought, nah there’s no difference of deactivating it or not, I will have self control, click on in when needed only. Pffft, jokes on me.
I did not plan this but somehow on the evening of 28th I randomly googled ‘how to deactivate IG/Twitter’ then I thought huh might as well just follow the steps and do it AND BOY, I DID. Weird how it felt very uplifting and kinda empowering. I then started telling everyone close to me so they wouldn’t worry about anything because this is not the i-would-like-to-disappear-let-see-who-cares-to-notice-move but it really is just something I need to let go in order to gain something else.
The time I had consumed mindlessly scrolling on it, searching for what I don’t know. Absorbing my mind with other people’s life is just not what I need right now. JUST NO. So the idea of filling that so call wasted time with something else is pretty exciting for me. To reset and refocus on ‘what and who’ is more important in my life, is my main concern now.
Day 1 and feeling great. Like I actually have time to read in between work or like reading actual news instead of some random tweet of a current issue. DO I CARE ABOUT WHAT’S TRENDING TODAY? NO, I DON’T.
Not sure how long I would be on deactivation mode. The target would be the whole month of October but we shall see. Maybe I might get addicted to deactivation mode.
Ok time to read some more books and fall in love again with this gift called life. My life ❤
