- I don't want another point of contact. I can be reached by phone, text or email. Three points of contact feel like enough.
- I like the natural ebb and flow of relationships. It seems like a lot of work to maintain relationships with people that I wouldn't recognize in person. Just because we were friends in first grade, doesn't mean that we know each other.
- I'm lazy. I don't want to learn a new thing. Or at least not that new thing.
- I'm insecure. Seeing your beautiful vacation photos is probably going to make me feel crappy about our vacation in a way that talking to you about your vacation wouldn't. Sidenote: one time I was scrolling through my instagram photos and I'm not even kidding when I say didn't recognize those beautiful pictures as my own life.
- Being off of Facebook forces people to tell you their stories, like for real. People sort of skip over the good parts because they've already posted the bulk of it on Facebook. Since I'm not on there, I get the long version. When my dear friend in Seattle had a baby girl instead of the boy that 2 ultrasounds predicted, I got a phone call because she knew I wasn't going to read about it on Facebook.
So there you have it. Lately being unconnected to Facebook has presented challenges that have me questioning my status. Any opinions? Am I missing out?
