Bye bye Facebook..AGAIN!!

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.

  1. Come join us at MeWe.com. It’s a newer social media outlet but no ads, no suggestions, no nothing, except who you want to be connected with. A lot of us moved there when FB started blocking writers sharing other writers work. Check it out. Their privacy statement is spot on. If you do join, just remember to set yourself to only friends of friends can request you. ❤️

  2. I understand this completely! I’ve been there and done that a few times myself. I had that thought, just last week. My friends and family post things, but I have come to a place where people who I want to see pictures of should be sending those directly to me, not placing them on a facebook wall and thinking I will see them. I check my facebook, but spend maybe 20 minutes a day doing that. I am at an age where classmates and friends get sick or even pass away and sometimes facebook is the only place I hear about it. Babies are born, someone moved…that type of thing is what I look for. I keep my privacy closed to friends. Occasionally I get a random email from someone I don’t know, I delete it. I used to feel bad about doing that, but not anymore.

    I am on your book facebook page and have enjoyed reading your writing…I downloaded your book on my Kindle. Your writing shows emotion and brings understanding in regards to a friend of mine. She was killed in a car accident about 11 years ago. I’ll spare you the details, but I ended up with her journals. Her story is one of bravery and courage that took her from her past into the day she was living the day she was killed. I started writing her story 7 years ago, but it became emotional for me…I had to put it away. I am ready to see if I can honor her with giving hope to others. A few of the poems I started with are on my WordPress page under “Vagrant Winds”. (I’ve been redesigning my page, you have to click on the moments tab…I think) She was an inspirational woman. You are as well. Walk forward, safely, my friend and when something makes you feel bad, face it and walk away from it if necessary. Have a blessed day.

    1. when I was on fb this was the reason. I wanted to be in the loop. what’s going on in family, how’s everyone. and people are so scattered these days and everyone has facebook. so for that it is useful.

      first of all thanks a lot for supporting me throughout. this means the world to me.

      thats so emotional. there are 2 bag packs of my mom’s journals and I haven’t mustered up strength to read them yet.

      I understand it’s not easy to rite about life stories, yours or anybody else’s. giving words require to relive everything and it gets painful. been there..

      I will definitely check.

      thank you so much again. you have a blessed day too ❤️🙂

  3. I got rid of my FB a couple of years ago. Although it’s a great idea and wonderful for people who want to stay in touch with family/friends who live far away, it also has a lot of flaws that I just don’t care to be a part of. Ah well.

  4. I never want to be a celebrity. I don’t mind being famous for my work, in absentia. Privacy is an absolute necessity; there are times when I need to be alone and that does not mean that I don’t need people. I just as absolutely do.

    1. that sounds exactly like me! every word of it. I go by a pseudonym I dont mind if that becomes famous for writing but not me! I will freak out.
      and yes. privacy doesn’t mean u want to be permanently alone we just need space at times. wish there were some courses to teach that.

  5. I’ve had fun with it over the years, but like you, I am sick of it. I personally do not post anymore, although I did share a poem on my “Page”. I’m not sure anyone ever reads them anyway. 😏 I prefer WP
