Speaking personally, as addicted as I am to facebook, it makes me crazy and angry a lot of the time. I work hard to keep it a positive and inspirational place for myself. I post about all my large and small accomplishments, try to stay above bickering, and if I’m having a hard day I say so.
Recently I was talking about AA and a friend who is also in recovery said to me:
“I wish I had crap tons more friends in AA online!
It would be like AA all over my feed and remind me to work on that stuff”
Facebook AA Page: https://www.facebook.com/AlcoholicsAnonymous1935
I realized I already had this in place. I ‘hid’ my friends who post about awesome times drinking or post pictures of drinks – I can always unhide them when I am stronger. And I read people who inspire me.
“I subscribe to the AA feed, and to inspirational speakers
so I do have lots of FB reminders to stay zen”
Here are the URLs for the motivational people I subscribe to:
Sharing quotes and wisdom on fearlessness, letting go, enlightenment, and more.
I’ve spent the past ten years studying vulnerability, courage, shame, and authenticity.
