I’m taking a break from most social media networks. Last year, in the heat of the presidential election, Facebook and Twitter created distance, disappointment, and animosity in too many relationships. I deactivated my Facebook account indefinitely, and suspended my Twitter account as well.
I now post my photos with inspirational quotes on Instagram.
More than ever, I celebrate the art of real conversation — person-to-person. After I quit Facebook and Twitter, I made an effort to spend time rebuilding old friendships and discovering new ones. I believe that friendships thrive on consistent nurturing and lots of facetime. Long live the local diner and backyard chats with friends and neighbors!
