12-28-10 Sparks is better than Facebook!

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

I find that I am spending way too much time on my computer these days. Which is not helping my weight. I feel lonely and lost at times so when I am on Sparks and Facebook, I dont feel as lonely. But I find I spend more time on Sparks instead of Facebook these days because I can express myself more freely without fear of what others will think. All the people I have met on Sparks are so much more understanding and friendly. Isn't it sad that the connections we make over our lifetime can be so judgmental while our new friends united in a common goal feel safer. Maybe they aren't judgmental, maybe that is my own in securities coming through? Maybe I am hiding behind my computer?

One of my new Goals for 2011 is trying to feel comfortable in my own body. If I can't find a way of being happy with me, nothing else I try is going to work long term.

    I'm with you on the exposing yourself to Facebook. I blog on Sparks, but I try to keep away from millions and millions of others.

    Sparks has people who have been there or trying to get out of there. We're here any time.--PJ

    I agree that Spark is better that Facebook. I spend much more time on Spark than on FB these days too.

    It is a little sad that the people closest to you are the most judgemental and perfect strangers can offer words that lift you up.

    Imagine how everyone would feel if people on Facebook were a positive as the folks on Spark.
