It’s been over two months since I broke up with social media.
I wish I could say it was intentional, that it was part of some noble plan to be more mindful.
But it wasn’t. It was apathy.
Honestly, it was a lot like the end of every other mediocre relationship you stay in too long out of habit. Until one day, you wake up and you simply don’t have the energy to care anymore.
Like all relationships, the love affair with social media started out so promisingly.
The idea of being able to stay connected to the daily lives of friends and family regardless of geographical distance was revolutionary, much like email had been 10 years earlier.
