Try to remember why you chose to give up FB for lent. If you are true to the goal of spending time on things that matter most, than a click over here and there won’t hurt. That’s just my humble opinion; the Vatican would most certainly disagree. But this is between you and… no-one-else.
Realizing that, in prior years, you needed the time away to wallow in your sorrows and reflect on the past without interference. Now, it seems, you are in a whole different space. You no longer need that isolation. True to self, you need quite the opposite.
If the blogosphere was as plentiful with commentary, as in prior years, you’d likely have no need to sneak onto FB. But times have indeed changed and, like it or not, FB seems to be where it’s at.
So, Julie, don’t beat yourself up for these moments of weakness. Just be certain that you aren’t ignoring the things that are deserving of your time and energy first.
Also, be prepared to be judged by others. And if you are publically judged by others, perhaps you can use that feedback to determine your list of friends-who-aren’t-really-friends.
With your spirit,
