As you might have noticed my last ten posts where only for the war on Gaza. I never imagined myself writing posts on my blog that are dedicated for politics, I have always been away from the political situation in the country. I always found disinterest in politics and political activities. Those who know me in real life know that about me. Over the years I have grown to be more aware of the political situation, even though I have never been an activist.
Over the past two years I started growing that interest. I never fully confessed that I want to be interested in every political activity. I simply became interested in what I found relevant to me and to others.
I suppose it has nothing to do with where you live, your nationality, or origin. It’s simply knowing the truth – the actual reality of me, my surroundings and so many other people. I never felt compelled to share online so many articles, videos, news and photos that reflect this reality unless the material is heavy and makes a great impact. And this month I thought I was going mad.
I stopped sharing posts on Facebook for security reasons. Taking risks right now is not high on my list. I do however share too much on this blog. Taking risks here feels better than Facebook or any other social network. But maybe I’m wrong, and I should stop writing. A friend suggested I keep a private diary.
I actually thought of deactivating my Facebook account for a while. I don’t want to feel compelled to share my opinion and put my life and future at risk. I’m also constantly overwhelmed by the posts that are shared there that I’m addicted to following them, reading them, express my thoughts and even share them. And I’m tired of the expressed racism on FB that I can’t help by report ever now and then. What do you think? Should I deactivate my FB account? at least for now, till it’s all over? I really need someone’s opinion on that.
