Facebook gives me anxiety

It's not the way it tracks my every move, or randomly listens in on my conversations and serves me ads based on things I've said, or things I interacted with on other websites.

All of that is really creepy, but the thing that bothers me most is that it's full of people from another life. Another, younger, life.

It's all people I went to school with or relatives I intentionally avoid. They're people I wouldn't even remember existed if I didn't see the best version of their lives, enhanced through the lens of social media.

I deleted my account once. For a few months, anyway. People were randomly texting me asking if I'm okay and making sure I was still alive and sane.
