With so much going on in my life, I felt the need to disconnect from medias that we occupying too much of my life. I felt it was time to create some distance from the world I am sometimes to involved in. It was time to bask in the quiet, to give myself time and space to accept and adjust to everything that has changed in my life. So I decided to give up Facebook.
Yeah facebook can be great, I have so many wonderful connections and I love to watch the progress of other CDC families; but, it has also brought about tremendous anxiety’s to my life. And it’s a portal to connections and memories I want to begin to let go of.
Social media can become such a necessary part of our daily routines, how we depend on it for support or how much we feel that we need it is sometimes something we overlook. And the reality for some is it can become too much of a distraction in our lives, a deep dependency to connect with the outside world that occupies alot of our time.
For me, I want to focus on what is here. I want to focus on those that are a part of my life. Those that love me and support me and I want to allow the past to stay in the past despite how difficult it is.
I have spent the last two days crying and angry after receiving the diagnosis of PCD for Sophie. I have felt numb and frozen as life continues on around me. I have not felt this was for many years and it is a very scary feeling. Moving forward is very difficult for me right now.
It has also made me realize how much I need to focus on my emotional well-being. I need to be strong for myself and my family to overcome this new phase in our lives.
Giving my mind and emotional state a break from the attachment to social media I feel is a good step at this point. And I can use the free time more productively.
