Unplug Your Facebook (But Maintain Contacts)

Often times when we are feeling down on ourselves, we compound the issue by comparing ourselves to others.

Social media, especially Facebook, only makes this worse.  While Facebook has the benefit of keeping one in contact with family and friends, news feeds are often a waste of productivity and paint an inaccurate picture of what is actually happening in people’s lives.  However, it is possible to deactivate Facebook itself, while maintaining valuable contacts through the Facebook Messenger.  This is a why and how guide to doing just that.

We’re slumping. What do we do?

Rock bottom is a harsh term. It infers that there is nowhere lower to go.  That everything negative that can happen, has happened. When one hits rock bottom, there is nowhere to go but up.

Maybe you’ve made some poor life choices that have led you to this point. Maybe you haven’t made poor choices, but you are stuck in a place in which you do not want to be. Maybe you can see what you want, but don’t know how to get there. Maybe you can’t see what you want yet, but know you don’t want what’s in front of you.

This experiment is for you, for me, for us.

On this website, I will offer tips, review life-changing or life-improving products, self-help books and chronicle my attempts at rebuilding. I am a 36 year old man, twice-divorced, no children with a history of self-sabotage, a major legal issue and a sloppy attempt at a career change.

Have I hit my rock bottom? Not at all. The choices I make over the next year will determine if I go in that direction, or in a direction that will make my life better.

I am not where I want to be. But I can get there. We can get there. Let’s help each other.
