I'm taking a break from Cafemom & Facebook..

Posted by   + Show Post

I honestly want to know what does taking a break from these sites do for you? I'm just curious, not bashing anyone.


I'm not taking a break, btw.

Thanks, but I'm not taking a break :)

I don't get on either one too much. I just mainly use FB to keep in contact withy family that I don't get to see much. And post pics of the kids for them to see.

Enjoy your break 😊

Exactly this. I have to remind myself that people aren't like this in real life.

At least around here... lol

For me.....sometimes......the negativity here starts to make ME feel negative.



And I don't like it.

I've taken several breaks from CM over the past 6 years.  My mind goes on overload and I find myself getting too wrapped up in strangers personal lives.  And on FB, I deactivate my account sometimes for the same reason, but they aren't strangers.  So it makes it worse.  I'm a helper, and a cheerleader, so I try to help too many people and lose myself.

I think after reading some negative things all the time a person gets to feeling down & gets to be negative themselves I know I wasn't this negative before CM .

From time to time I have to bc I get so irritated. Election time is a good example. People just annoy me when they go overboard and fly off the handle.

I don't set out to take breaks. I usually just get busy, or bored, and wander off for a while. 

I haven't spent a lot of time on CM in a while. I spend about 10-15 min a day here. It just doesn't hold my interest like it used to.

I always do a week or so before 9/11 because my grandmother died on September 11, but in 2003. But since the 9/11 attacks are memorialized every year, I am bombarded with the date, no matter where I go or how I try to avoid it. so I stay off CM, facebook, and really the internet/news in general. It's very hard on me.
