You hit a moment when you bluntly tell Facebook you are deactivating because you feel unsafe.
I did it today. Because my peace and sanity is important.
If I am using a pseudonym. If I am keep a strict bifurcation between my two worlds. I don’t want anyone to stalk (from God knows where) and shove friend suggestion in my face of people I don’t want in my life.
Like the world you were painting wasnt giving me enough anxiety already.
I don’t know how this happened. I had 100+ friends and relatives and I had been using Facebook for around 6 7 years. Maybe more. But a point came when I just couldn’t stand it.
Maybe this will change with time.
I made new account for promotion of my book and to have an author’s page. There are tons of pages and groups for writers but most of them were doing like-for-like kinda gimmicks to grow a page.
I did that too for 4 5 pages. Got likes too. But is it worth it?? At least not for me.
So to save my little bit of sanity I deactivated this account too.
I want to feel safe.
I don’t want people popping up right in my face when I have spend years to set some boundaries, which still get violated casually.
What happened to people wanting to have a private life?
You can do whatever you want with your life but if I chose to keep mine in a grave this shouldn’t be anybody’s concern.
I think it’s important to built certain walls around you.
Remember Marina Abramović’s rhythm 0?
Where visitors were allowed to do whatever they want to her? Eventually it got violent and had to be stopped.
That’s humanity for you.
If you allow people to do whatever they want to you, trust me you can’t imagine the lengths they can go to.
Humans have tendency to push the limits, imagine the consequences when there are no limits.
Well I got carried away.
Thanks for reading
Have a good day.
