So I was made aware that even though I deactivated my Facebook account months ago, my Facebook Messenger was still open. There was a ‘double downside’ to having to deal with this today…..
First I had to go back into my Facebook account to retrieve messages, as I didn’t want to download the FB Messenger app. In predictable fashion, the first post in my feed was somebody whining about politics….shut up already!!
Then I went to Messenger to see the 14 messages I missed, including one from a friend whose child is gravely ill – this was posted three weeks ago. To say that I feel horrible about just finding out is an understatement.
The only upside to dealing with this today was to quickly realize how much I don’t miss Facebook – I could feel my stress climbing when I saw that ridiculous post. There’s no doubt in my mind that my quality of life has gotten much better since walking away.
