Now, I am not saying belonging to these groups is a bad thing. I find so much support from these groups. But as of today, I realized I belonged to about 10. A few of them weren't active and some I didn't even regularly stop by to see what was going on with. But mostly what I realized is because some are so similiar, I was getting the same post several times. It was overwhelming. I was missing alot of stuff that was going on my Facebook timeline.
I realized I was "grouped" out.
You see, what happens is I have been getting link bombarded. Too many groups will do that. So today I did something I find completely freeing....
I left!! I walked away! I didn't even say Good-bye!
Ok, so I didn't leave all of them. These groups are fun and definitely serve a great purpose to get my creative wheels turning. What I realized is several of the groups have repeat members. What was happening is I saw there link here, there and everywhere. Now, I love to support other people and what they do, but all the links were getting lost and I was getting overwhelmed. And eventually, I just didn't click on any of the links.
So today I took my own advice - I cleared the clutter to clear the mind. While at first I felt a little guilty about dropping the groups, I feel relieved since I have done it!
