Why I Left My Facebook Mommy Groups

Today, I decide to leave my four Facebook mommy groups for the following reasons:

  1. I wanted to have real-life friendship and I was not getting any of it from my mommy groups.
  2. I couldn’t stand the bullying of some members to those whom they perceived as not following their advice.
  3. The group has become a haven for humble-bragging.
  4. It affected me how some women were treated badly by their in-laws and even husband or partner but they were not empowered enough to stand on their own.
  5. It affected me to read daily rants from women who should have been empowered in the first place.

Don’t get me wrong–I enjoyed the virtual company of my mommy groups but I needed to focus on more productive things in my life like my thesis for the next semester. I have always been empathetic when it comes to people who are in trouble but I need to set my priorities, too in such a way that my professional growth will not be compromised.
