hey mister (or miss...)
always nice to see an old face (or avatar
i don't agree with a complete unplug, either. it would show that there is still an issue with self-control.
i went over a month without signing in and only checking ATS once a day or so...and still don't really get involved in facebook. the web is a
wonderful tool if used that way but just like every other "gift", it's a double edged sword that can turn against you without realizing it.
as for tv...i haven't turned a tv on in years. there's nothing i've seen on there that looks anything less than boring. but i feel the web has MUCH
more good vibes to it than the tv. it would be almost idiotic to completely unplug from the web! there's too much neato info on here.
most days now...i seldom spend more than 30 minutes involved in the web a day. not necessary for my work and afterwards, i try to shy away from it.
but i think the initial unplug was very important to completely severe the tie it had made with my subconscious. i'm typically a very shut off person
anyways (icekohld), so i would venture to say that i didn't get grabbed quite as hard by it as some people but it was more than enough to shock the
heck outta my system.
it's not even all about the doom and gloom or the hatred that seems to be running rampant on the boards...there has just been a very negative energy
seeming to run through the web lately that really sits funny with me...almost like that feeling you get knowing you shouldn't trust a certain
person...kinda feel it deep down that there's something you're not seeing but can feel and you know you don't want nothing to do with it.
i'm glad i unplugged but i don't plan on staying unplugged...it was just a transition. now, i've gotta stay conscious of my own behaviors and my own
inner voice telling me what's right and wrong! i think a lot of people would greatly benefit from a temporary unplug and then reevaluation but i can
only listen to my own inner voice and no one else can hear mine so to each their own!
as with all things, moderation is the key...
