Due to my predicament, I have to stay at home a lot of the time. I'm also in a LDR, so I have to use technology a lot anyways. But it's become detrimental. I'm always going on Facebook to check his page and see what he's up to. (Yes I have some trust issues). Then to take my mind off of him, I immediately try to numb my thoughts by watching videos, reading articles, or reading other people talk about their problems which never helps because usually I relate them to mine and begin to over-think once again. This week I'm creating a goal to not visit Facebook for a week, except Tuesday where I post information. Wish me luck!
Why not just disable your account?
@CKarma Hi! Thanks for your reply. I usually deactivate it just to reactivate it again, and I’m too sentimental to fully delete it if that’s even an option. I also use it as a navigation tool for business, so it’s not so simple.
are you using google chrome? there are some web apps in the chrome store that can help you limit your time spent on certain sites. I know of at least one that makes it hard to disable as well (you have to perfectly copy a bunch of text without messing up)
@ameliorate Hey there! I am using Google Chrome, I’ve never heard of that feature. Interesting. Do you mind telling me more about it? Have you ever used it before? Thanks for your reply!
