So if anything, being off of social media (for ONE day, so far) has made me more active and productive…slowly but surely.
I think one of the reasons I was most frustrated was from seeing how fabulous everything appeared to be.
“Did you leave Facebook because it’s not real?” a friend texted me.
I thought that was a really good valid point. Facebook is not “real” in the sense that if you’re having a really crappy day, you’re not likely to post about it, then again some people do. It’s really a place to present the best version of who you want to be.
It’s easy to “create the illusion” of being rich and fabulous, but the upkeep can really take a toll on one’s self.
I had a friend ask me a very serious question the other day:
“Why don’t you see if you can buy half of the club you work at?”
He was dead serious. We were at a nice restaurant, and it was my turn to pick up the tab and it was getting pretty expensive and I was panicking on the inside.
I avoided answering that question. I don’t like to discuss finances, but I do not have enough to purchase commercial real estate in New York City, but if I’ve created the illusion that I do, well, then maybe I’ve achieved part of the whole “glitzy act” that can be expected of a certain scene in Manhattan.
