It seems too hard at first, but you’ll get used to the real world. In any case, if you wish to get back to Facebook, you’ll just need to log in with your user ID and Password and everything will be back to as it was. If you have completely moved on without Facebook, then you can contact Facebook to delete your account permanently, as there is no built-in option for that.
