I have been deactivate my facebook, twitter, and instagram account for 2 or 3 weeks now and I feel that my daily life become simpler and lighter. The reason why I deactivate those accounts is because I just don’t feel it anymore, I feel that those social media is getting overwhelmed and I don’t want my life dependent on it or become the habit of going into that social media world everyday. I want to be disconnect with some part of the Universe that I do not want to see and being able to have the freedom to choose what I want in my life, who to interact with, and other. Basically, to train ourself to not being control by the social media or other form of distraction on what is actually essential in life.
These words still cannot describe and giving a fair judgement on what is actually I feel about deactivating social media accounts. It is not only about turning that off or uninstall it from your phone, there is something beyond that. You should experience it by yourself. Coming back to the world without too many connections and distractions. Then you will understand what is the “zen of being disconnect”, the stillness and solitude but feeling so rich and gratitude inside.
