I have debated, many times, whether or not I should deactivate my Facebook.
On the one hand, there are many reasons to do it. Communicating with friends, keeping up-to-date with my child’s day care, easier messaging with people I need to talk too.
On the other, I don’t want to look like I’ve given in, couldn’t handle life without it, or look weak. Yes. I am worried about looking like I wimped out.
There’s also the possibility that I could find the right teacher to “mentor” me in getting back in the game. I really want to get back in the game. I miss teaching and hate retail.
But I also know that, should I activate, I’d most likely end up returning to my old ways pelf using it as an outlet to vent.
While it’s good to release your feelings (or hatred, whatever), doing so in a social fashion isn’t the best way–especially when you have so many co-workers on Facebook, and those co-workers have management, and most of your raging, I mean venting is work related.
Yes, this shares to my “professional” writing Facebook page. Yes, a handful of those friends have liked said page.
But no one ever reads these.
I’ll just tell myself the same thing I’ve been telling myself for the last two and a half weeks: “give it another week”.
