I am re-evaluating the amount of social media I use. How much is too much?

  1. For me, it's too much when it makes me worried, anxious, angry, or depressed. I know that sounds like I want things to be a part of my life only if they make me happy but that's not what I'm saying at all. What I am saying is that there is enough real life shit to wade through without allowing a supposedly fun, relationship-creating/building/developing device to add to that.

    Plus, I just don't need to know what each of my friends is thinking all the time. I don't need to know the intimate details of their lives and their opinions and their thoughts. I try to not share that way for a reason. Sometimes I cross my own line.

    My rule is that if I haven't heard it directly from you, then it isn't really heard. If we haven't made meaningful contact and shown each other grace and love and compassion, then we haven't really interacted.

    I find that this rule has made going on G+ and Facebook rather unnecessary. I'm on it less frequently nowadays.

    I don't know if my rambling is apropos or helpful. But these are my thoughts as I question the same.
