How Facebook Affected Me

I am currently separated from my husband of 29 years. Just last week, I deactivated my Facebook account because I found it made me angrier and hurt. I found I was resenting people on there who displayed their relationship as great. When I was in my angry phase of the emotional tide, I found myself wanting to destroy my husband publicly, wanting to get on the profile of his "female friend" and see what she's up to with hopes to destroy her image, and to top it off, any comment made to my wall or I made on the wall of my friends who were also mutual friends of my husband's "female friend" were seen by her and I resented that. I'm not working and so the time I spent on FB was really a total waste of negative time I didn't need. I needed to find positive time and activities that would help me through this ordeal.
