I read this blog the other day, and it got me thinking.
BTW Raven from Mommas's Desires to Pacifers is the bomb of all bombs, go to her blog, pick a post, read it and I don't even care what one you pick, you will love it! She is hilarious and refreshing, and I love her, in a way that one blogger can safely and normally love another blogger of course.
Anywho, I stole this picture from her blog, and then I got to thinking about what it means. What it means to me. What it specifically means to me regarding Facebook. I have a love hate relationship with it.....I love to hate it. After I saw this picture I thought to myself, you know all those people who you are friends with on FB that you can't stand? GET OFF THEIR FAN PAGE!
Once a month, read here to understand why, I go into a frenzy over FB. Is she talking about me, why is she trying to one up me? Why in the hell-o did she say something SO stupid! I complain to hubbie, and he hates it. Men will never understand the musings of a women's character. But he is right, it is childish, petty and a huge waste of my talent and time! I like to think of myself as a loving, compassionate and understanding person, but I am after all a girl, and there is a jealous, petty, bitch inside of me that comes out, only once a month tho, and Facebook seems to always be the cause. Once a month I become the people that should get their FB page license revoked (FB license is something that should be rewarded to all those who are smart enough, nice enough and mature enough to handle FB.)
Why am I frineds with these people on FB? Well the honest and sorry fact is, 1) I like to see that "friends" number go up, makes me feel popular and liked 2) I like to brag to all the mean girls in high school about how awesome I grew up to be and 3) I secretly hope that said mean girls grew up to be fat and lonely, being friends with them on FB allows me to see that they are indeed fat and lonely. None of those things are noble or worthy of a real reason to be friends with someone, I know that, I know that I sound like a terrible crazy person right now. In a way I am no better then the loser who leaves mean comments anonymously. I am not proud of my FB etiquette, in fact shame on me for acting so childish and petty. It isn't pretty it isn't right, but it is how I feel, sometimes. You are starting to see a part of me that you have never seen before, we did warn you of this, remember ;)
Of course there are good reasons I have a FB page too. I don't live close to anybody in my family, and they like to know what P had for breakfast and what color my socks are on Wednesdays, so it is important that I keep it for their sake. I also do have lots of friends on there that are true friends, they make me laugh, they encourage and they truly do care. For those people I am grateful for, and grateful to FB for connecting them to me.
Why am I following the losers? Why am I playing their games, the games that make me so upset and sad? It should be enough that I am happy, content and have super amazing kids. If nobody from high school sees that, is it really the end of the world? Absolutely not! All will go on, and all will be well.
Attitudes and moods are highly contagious diseases, I don't have time to be friends with people that are trying to get their bad attitude all over me. There are plenty of reasons to be sad in the world, if I want to be sad, I will find a reason on my own, I don't need others to give me theirs. From now on I will only be joining fan clubs of people who inspire, laugh and truly love life! Then we can all get our love of life all over each other, doesn't that sound like more fun!
Have a great FB loving day ;) and remember, stay above the fray.
