So last month was about making my body look good. This month is about making my mind look good and fixing my jacked-up social skills.
I read this (fairly old) New York Times Op-Ed and it rings so true.
I have diagnosed myself with a terrible case of FOMO (Fear of Missing out, FYI) and Facebook only exacerbates it. Add that to my ADD and my general low self-esteem, I find myself constantly checking facebook to find out what else is happening. Just in case there is something else happening, and because I am not part of this one part of the conversation happening in front of me and because is there something I am going to be sad I am not involved in.
Enough, Grandipants. Get your shit together and enjoy the lovely people who are willing to hang out with you face-to-face. April is all about putting the phone away and enjoying the precious few moments I get to spend with real human people.
So. I deleted facebook from my phone, because it is like a bad crack habit. The goal is to keep the phone away. We are starting here with this. I cannot wait to enjoy my friends and all the wonderful things they say in actual talking.
