Freedom from Facebook
I finally did it.
Yesterday I finally “removed” the last application associated with my Facebook account. I felt like having a party!!
It all started about 2 years ago when I discovered I was addicted to Facebook. It was my first thought in the morning and my last at night. Mostly because of a game called Knighthood, which required nearly 24/7 maintenance. Then of course came FarmTown, FarmVille, and the rest.
Since then, my goal has been to get rid of all the time stealers. Knighthood was first. Two Januaries ago, I removed and blocked Knighthood for good.
The rest have followed, slowly but surely, as I got to a level predetermined by me. (Some games I just wasn’t ready to leave yet.)
But yesterday, I achieved 100% on all levels and prizes for Egg Breaker. It was the last one. I hit “remove” and voila, Facebook can only be used for talking with people. What relief. And as a bonus, I’m no longer sitting at my computer for ages. I’m getting my real work done, and my housework. My kids are getting more of my attention (they weren’t neglected, but now they have even more of my time).
I feel really good about this change. I’m thrilled. And now, I’m off to play legos with my kids.
