Unfollow


Today I unfollowed someone on Facebook.

It's the first time I've done it.

It's not that I don't like the person, it's just that their status updates rile me up.

Whenever this happens, I spend the next 20 minutes thinking about a clever comment to respectfully challenge their view - while remaining convinced that my contribution will add nothing to the conversation.

I know that my craftsmanship will become another inconsequential piece of brilliance aimlessly floating in the eternal void of social media static.

So, I overcame my sense of guilt for reducing the amount of people in my feed who will articulate a different point of view than mine, and I clicked 'unfollow'.

I still love you, but I need to invest my time on this earth more wisely.

I guess I could just put my phone down - or I could blog about it. 😉
