Choose your News

Ah, social media, you gotta love it.

Or not.

Personally, for the most part I’m ok with social media. I don’t get it 100% but it’s been good to me, so I’m going to stick around.

I really like Facebook, my Facebook page is a happy place. Full of inspiring people who want to make themselves better and make the world a better place.

Does this describe you? If so great, let’s be friends. Add me!

I’ve heard people complaining about their social media feeds. How they are so tired of people who are negative and complaining. How it really brings them down.

Here is my question? If people on your feed are not delivering to you the content that nourishes you, makes you happy and is in line with your values perhaps it’s time to unfriend them online.

My social media world is a place I enjoy hanging out in because I created it that way. If someone posts something that makes me squirm, I give them one chance, and then a second chance and on the third one –  good-bye. I choose my news. You can too!

Decide you gets to play in your social media space, choose your news, it’s just one more way to live Your Life, Unlimited!

One thought on “Choose your News”

  1. I, too, have deleted many from my Facebook newsfeed, for the same reasons you have mentioned. However, I have mostly chosen to “unfollow” rather than to “unfriend”. That accomplished the same thing for me (cleaned up my newsfeed), but left the door open for them to still be influenced (hopefully in a positive way) from the things that I post. It also allowed me to at least maintain a connection to them — in most cases, they asked to become friends with me.
