I Needed A Break From Social Media and This is What Happened...
Many of you know me for being very active on social media. I mean, it’s part of my job as a blogger to do so and, I was honestly afraid of going ghost but my spirit needed to disconnect from social media to gain clarity, grow my relationship with God and focus on myself.
I felt like social media was consuming me, I was spending way too much time on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Then I started feeling like Facebook was such a toxic space, maybe because all I would see there was conflict after conflict after conflict and It was too much. I also realized that I was putting God last, I wasn’t praying like I used to, I was all over the place emotionally, and deep down I had the desire to build a stronger foundation with the Lord.
I fasted from social media for 21 days. I thought I wasn’t going to be successful with it but surprisingly I did! — I discovered so much about myself during that time and I also had more than enough time to pour positivity into myself... reading books, watching self-development videos, journaling my thoughts and emotions and most importantly reading the Bible were the things that kept me busy all the time. I gained a level of self discipline that I had no idea I was ever going to reach, I spent more time with my family, and also gained a new habit.
Sometimes everything around us gets too loud that we forget about who we are or we allow it to consume us. As someone with a platform, it’s my job to constantly work on myself to be able to transfer the same energy to my audience and the people who support me, and I highly recommend you to take a break whenever you need it; trust me, your spirit will let you know when it’s time and you have to go for it.
Allow God to be the center of your life and everything you do. Allow Him to take control and let yourself go... we don’t have the answers that we are looking for, He does. And that is something I had to remind myself because I am someone who often wants to be in control of my own journey and want the answers quickly. Well, now I have learned to be patient with myself and to allow God to take control over my finances, my business, my relationships and even my job.
