I had a thought today, it wasn't a pleasant one, I came across another person online whilst on facebook (I'm rather obsessed by it) who I found incredibly rude. Now I don't know this person, shes a friend of one of my friends, I saw her comment on a post so replied with the advice that she should look into soya and hormone problems as she has lots of it, wasn't trying to be funny I genuinely wanted to help, unleash the fury, it was quite unreal, I realised I should maybe keep my opinions to myself, but I don't know about you but I presumed because she is friends with my friend she would be similar to us, would be easy going and nice.
Its made me look at this, just because you have a good friendship doesn't
mean you will be friends with their friends does it, do you think we
have different friends for our different parts of our personalities? do
you think we have various friends to do different things with, to
fulfill gaps in our lives.
It made me feel a little sick to be
honest, a bit shaken, maybe my bubble of loveliness at home and the
people I choose to surround myself with protect me from the outside
world to some degree, I think that's
why I love the homeschool route too, I know my boys don't have to deal
with the bullies, mean folks, some may say its not good to shelter them
in this way and they have to learn to deal with such people, but think
about it for a minute, why do they?.
Can we not be happy and
loved, can we not surround ourselves by good, loving relationships? Of
course we can, its all about choice.
I guess that's
the down side about social media, you cant really choose who and what
your exposed to unless you only have about 5 friends on your page. Which
is ok to do if you don't use it for networking.
I organise fairs and need to be able to share events with as many people as possible that's why I have so many 'friends' on fb, that's why I come across idiots who could ruin my day if I let them but I wont, I take a few minutes to look at why I'm feeling the way I do and move on.
can you spot the 5 yr old me?
