This feels a lot like the ledge I wrote about a couple weeks ago. The temptation to step off, to hit that button.

It’s funny how hovering over those words can seem like such a monumental decision, but it’s really not that major once you do it! Great subject and love your word choices, like “ephemera” and “gossamer webbing.”
You’ve touched on something so universal, I think–and so beautifully worded. The self wondering, Do I matter? Does anyone care?
Powerful because it’s full of truth and also how I’ve been feeling lately.

Ah, so many times have I felt this way myself. The community can be so rewarding, and yet sometimes it does feel as though one could slip away unnoticed. But don’t.
And I do this. Every month 🙂 Well told.

I deactivated one account this past week: Pinterest. I got sick of looking at it, sick of being taunted by a site I never use.
As for the rest of social media? Nope. Not shutting it down any time soon.

I stopped writing for a bit…but didn’t stop reading. Please don’t, if it’s this “media” at least. You’re too good.
