Why I Quit Pinterest
Pinterest is a wonderful resource.
A great way to find ideas, inspiration, and new products.
It is a wonderful tool to use to get your awesome tutorial to go viral in seconds with your perfectly edited pictures and the cute little text name in the bottom right hand corner (not judging, I'm guilty, too)
But I have given it up.
I did not delete my account, nor did I delete all my pins. I quite browsing Pinterest for several reasons. I still use it as my "google for all things crafty," but I do not sign in and scroll, scroll, scroll like I used to. I only go to it when I have a specific thing I'm looking for. Here, lately, it has been for recipes. I feel like there is such a thing as "inspiration overload." Being too inspired. Like, so inspired that your brain cannot process all the perfect little craft pins enough to complete them. I have gotten so many ideas from pinterest that I was dragged down. Getting angry at myself for having a plethora of ideas, but nothing to show for them. This is not healthy.
Then I began to compare myself to those who I found on Pinterest.
All their perfect photos.
Having time to do amazing sewing projects.
Gorgeous craft rooms.
Great tips for cleaning? Shoot, I'm lucky if I even wipe the counters down some days. Please don't make me feel worse because I haven't tried out this new idea for getting my fireplace all spic and span.
So, there. I gave up Pinterest. Well, sorta.
