Wow, what an interesting, fun, and yet destructive tool.
I have been able to keep in touch with family and friends all around the country! It's been amazing! I love the support system it gives each of us. I am addicted. lol But, recently, I have also found out how people can use it as weapon of sorts.
A "friend" and I seemed to have had a falling out. I really wasn't too aware of it. I thought we had a misunderstanding. But this person has pretty much cut off all contact with me. Things we were invited to be a part of, we were suddenly not so welcome to be a part of. And their blatant ignoring of us on facebook also did not go unnoticed.
So the time has come to clean out the wonderful FB list. While I'm at it, I'm going to delete people from as far back as high school. It's one thing to comment and support each other. Call each other. See each other if you're in the same area. But why be a FB friend to someone you NEVER talk too? I could care less about hurting their feelings at this point. They know if we are really friends or not. I don't need a bunch of nosey people butting into my life. If you really aren't a part of it, you have no business reading about it. Period. Sorry, but that's just my view.
I'm not out in life to win a popularity contest. I don't need 300 friends. I just need people in my life I can trust. People I like and who like me. People who aren't addicted to drama. People who appreciate me and I them.
Time to simplify!
