Every once in awhile we have to check out for a few days just to think and get things straight, but this can be a dangerous thing, because we are meant to be with others. God made Eve to be with Adam because as the bible says…
The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” (Genesis 2:18 NIV)
Then after that woman was created and well I think we all know the rest of the story. But this last week I checked out, I wasn’t answering calls or texts useless it was for work or a few people really close to me. Also the best thing that I did and that I’m still doing is I’ve stayed off of Facebook. Which has been hard, because every time I log on to my computer it would pop up, I was being tempted by the devil to go back on what I decided for myself. During that time I got some drive back, i decided it’s time to work on some idea that have been in my head. But I took that break for a little too long because I started to notice that the productiveness, started to turn into loneliness and feeling isolated, because ‘it’s not good for man to be alone’. And that is why I think so many try to connect to people through social media and sometimes it can be great and sometimes it’s false and fake. Most people just post the good while they are going through hell but they want everyone to think the world is perfect. Some post all the bad to get attention, to get people to look at them. Others lerk to see what you are doing and never say a word, while some use it to attack people and be rude and ugly. Over this last week of no Facebook, I’ve decided to try to get myself off, now I will still have a page because so much of my business is tied to it, but I’m starting to think this is best for me. So this is a goal. 😊
So during this time I learned being disconnected for a little bit can be good, but for too long, and your mind goes places, you get overwhelmed, and you start to think that no one cares, and then the anger. Anger over everything, and you start to get short with the few people that you do see. You dig a hole for yourself, and you start to pull the dirt in over you. Thankfully I realized around the time I was making myself comfy in the hole, and by the grace of God I climbed out because ‘it’s not good for man to be alone’. So I got my joy back now, and I feel good. I’m not saying everything is great because their are a few things that are still in limbo, but I have joy so now, let’s check back in!
