A little experiment

I’m told that I am a very patient person. That is not something that I can argue against, but there are certainly times that my patience is either very thin or non-existent. It’s true! I think that every one is like that. There is not a single person that I know that is the epitome of patience all the time. That patience is being tested right now as is my resolve and my minor OCD. I hate seeing notifications on my phone that haven’t been cleared. The little red numbers drive me crazy at times. My mind wants to know what those are all about and that makes it extremely difficult to ignore them. Well, I haven’t looked at Facebook since Sunday, and I have every intention of avoiding it until this coming Monday.

Why?

I don’t know to be honest. It was something that I just decided to do. The funny thing about that is that I’m getting to a point where that little red number doesn’t bother me at all. It doesn’t taunt me like it used to and I don’t mind that one but.

Hey, I’m glad that you’re having good things happen in your life. I’m sad that you’re having a tough time right now (but you will get through it). The thing is that it’s now summertime. My focus needs to be on my own life and my son, not everyone else. Sometimes that line gets blurred when too much time is spent seeing how everyone else is doing. No offense, but the most important part of my life is mine and my son’s.

There may come a time soon that I stop checking Facebook altogether. I won’t apologize for that. The important people in my life know how to reach me. I’ll still share pictures of my son and dog on Instagram because I know that there are those who appreciate that, but I think a step away from the mess that is social media is important. I’ll continue to share these posts to Facebook, but I won’t be checking the comments, so if you have something to say, then comment on the post here on my blog.

Oh. One more thing. I was told that I shouldn’t bash things that seem important to others (ie A Royal Wedding). I didn’t think that I was bashing it. I just felt that there were much more important things in life than something that was happening thousands of miles away. I did express wishes that they have a long and loving marriage with oodles of children!
