Hello ATS, my name is Anishnaabe, Real name Jarred. (I like it, no much 'jarreds' out there)

I am Ojibway First Nation, from Canada. I have posted in a few threads, also have been a long time lurker.
Checking things out and getting the hang of the site before i registered. I hope my stay here is long and will
help me gain knowledge about this life full of 'wonders'. i have been a 'conspiracy theorist' for a couple years now, i have gotten a few of my friends into it, and now they are just like me :p

Anyways, the advice i need, was that i deleted my facebook about a month or two ago, at the time i thought it was the best thing i have done in a while. i felt it was useless, and no one needed to see my life story on a website. If they want to see me come knock on my door
. So for a while there i felt good, no drama, no reading about other peoples problems. But there is one downside. I am still a young 'lad' and i am not the social type. I dont like places with alot of people, nor do i like talking to people that much (except my friends and family, ill go on for hours if im knowledgeable on that topic. BUT the problem i am having, is that without 'Facebook' i no longer talk to that much people. i used to talk to alot of my friends through facebook, because its the 'thing to have'. Since i have deleted my account, i talk to about 4 people, that arent my close family, and are long time friends, i feel as i have lost touch with all these people. i know for a fact that some of my good friends from my kid days, i wont talk to them anymore.

I am sitting here thinking if i should reactivate my account, just so i can keep in touch with people, as i feel lost. I feel there is something missing in my life. (Not the site itself, but the people i used to talk to.) I just want to know some of your thoughts on my situation, as i am really not sure of what i want to do, you will see below.

Reason for deleting account - No one needs to know my buisness, were i am, what i look like, who im friends with etc. I am slowly getting away from this technology that makes us 'slaves'. I want to be outdoors all my life, hunting, tracking, and just Living, the way it was meant to be lived. I hate when i glue my eyes to the tv, the computer, any type of technological screen. I feel i lost connection with the 'nature' side of me, which i would prefer to be with nature all the time.

Hopefully this is enough detail as to my situation, any questions ask. First thread, so go easy on meh

Hey man! I can tell you I'm in the same exact situation! But the reason why I deleted my facebook were for other reasons, especially school related. I definitely agree with you, facebook is such a big distraction, but in the end, I guess its for the better. I have the contacts of the people that are the most important to me. Also, another reason why I deleted it were because of ex-girlfriends. I felt that even if I blocked them, they would somehow manage to see my page and see what I was up to, especially after them breaking up with me, which I found not cool. Anyhow man, don't feel like you're the only one who does not have a facebook. Life has been going great without a facebook, and I can definitely tell you that I have been getting much more done with my life than having one. I know one day I'll be back, I mean its easy to reactivate my account, however, it matters the most when you set your priorities straight first my friend. I hope all is well. Do not feel alone broseph, people here at ATS will keep your life entertained and busy. On top of that, you'll be surprised that ATS will eventually become even more addicting than facebook =D.

Cheers.

Yes, this is part of the reason to, they should be able to move on, and not worry. Guess not though


Exactly what i was thinking, and i am doing that now, i wont be around for long, maybe a year, as i will be moving on with my life, and doing what i want to do. "Focus on the things thatll help you move forward, and let go of the things holding you back" is what i tell myself, everyday. In the past and sometime now, i put things off, and think i dont need it now, but saying that phrase motivates me.
Yes, ATS is addicting, i come on every morning and night, i love checking the new threads and debate things.

As for facebook, Girls are the part of the reason i want to reactivate. but they cause to much problems imo.
that is why i gave up on them, until i feel i can no longer be stressed out by the problems that comes with relationships. As i like to say, Change is for the better, sometime it works out, other times it takes a little 'push'.

Hi, greetings & salutations


We the members of ATS welcome you with open arms, a firm handshake & a freindly smile. I was a lurker myself for many years & found it one of my greatest releases being able to share my thoughts, paranoias & belifes with like minded & often edcucated people without fear of riddicule. Of course there is the usual friendly banter & people on our sight are great at giving constructive criticism when it is needed.

Anyway I am a writer, mainly of lyrics, poems & short stories, I became addicted to using Facebook to keep in touch with people but also as an outlet for my writing. I got to know various People, Artists & Producers through the site. Problems arose when some of the lyrics I was sharing with people were taken & used by an Artist without my consent. I found too that as I was witing through Facebook a lot, my personal writing in general suffered as I was putting too much effort into the virtual side of my life.

I deativated my account weeks ago & consitrated on writng on my computer more, getting ready to send more of my material to Publishers & trused Producers. Yes I lost touch with people I only had contact with through Facebook but I gained focus on putting out more writing in the hope of; 1, earning money ! 2, getting my work out into the P.D !! & 3, finaly being appreciated by the Public & becoming recognised as a profesional writer !!! I have had short stories published in the past but only in County wide Publications


Since deactivating my account, after changing all my personal details, I found a new sense of meaning & purpose, yes I try to spend an hor or two on ATS, but hanging on to see who liked or commented on my Posts/Notes is a thing of the past. Each Thread we post on here is add to our ATS so is easy to find replies to your Threads or Posts.

I hope you get much pleasure & knowledge from our site, I look forward to reading your Threads & will keep any eye out for you.

Peace be with You, all you care for, love & are lucky enough to share in your life, Star for you

I think i feel a lot like you. I keep working on computer all the time and i feel like i have become machine sitting in front of another machine. I also want to spend my life doing things that have some meaning. I want to get out and live life but the new world order cant let us do that. To be in the society we have to act and talk like everyone else..

Thank you, and i agree, it is a relief to be able to have a place were the people are like you, and arent just cussing and flaming other people. Goodluck on your path of Writing, i wish you well.
I wasnt the one to post statuses, usually it would just be a line from a song or a website. But most of the time i tried to get people to wake up, posting videos and links to conspiracy and conspiracy websites. I feel the same, like a weight has been lifted when not using it. After all, whats the point?

Exactly, facebook is just 'mind control'. Keeping people glued to it, so they dont care about the important things in life.

reply to post by Unvarnished
 

Haha same. Yes they will be.

I am not going to reactivate it, for now. If i REALLY need it, i will, but for now, no facebook.
