So, we are not even a full week into my Social Media break and I cannot explain the shifts in my body and mind.
I’ve relaxed…..I’m not raging at the drop of a hat.
My anxiety is slowly fading.
My mind is clearer and I see the TOXICITY that SM ( social media ) was creating in my life.
I couldn’t see my path because I was so focused on everyone else and how to “DO IT BETTER” what ever the fuck IT is.
At the same time i went off SM we cut out our son's access to Youtube and his X-box.
His mood has shifted and we are getting back my silly little boy that I have always loved.
This is making me ponder the benefits of SM.
I do feel like I have been able to create an amazing community because of it.
I’ve connected with dear friends on it, that I wouldn’t have met any other way.
But things have shifted as we all know and I no longer desire to be OUT FRONT………I’ve slowly been creating a sacred space on my Mighty Network.
Where I have all my courses and communities.
Including a BUY+SELL witchy group where you can post items that no longer serve you. Think of it as your WOOtrading post!
It feels safe. Away from prying eyes of social media activists that would rather tear you down than have an open conversation.
It feels safe. Away from judgement of people who want to put all spiritually minded people in the same category of QAnon crazies.
It feels safe. Away from Big Brother and all the advertising that comes with it.
It feels safe. Away from having a platform decide one day that my content breaks some hidden list of rules. And to this specifically I watched two creators loose groups of people up to 65,000 because people within the groups used “man hating” language…..when they were rightfully pissed off at husbands or co-workers.
It has taken me YEARS to create my sacred spaces on social media.
It has taken me YEARS to find the followers that appreciate the content I provide.
I’m considering all options while i’m on this SM break.
The more and more I relax and come back to centre………the more I realize life is possible without these platforms controlling what we can and can’t do. And I certainly don’t miss the toxic arguments and assumptions that are running rife there.
