AND THEN ADD SOCIAL MEDIA INTO THE MIX…
Social media is a faster way of putting out there what you want others to know than word-of-mouth is. I was a little sad and also disappointed about a post I saw on social media one day.
You never know about people. You put your trust in them and take them into your heart and then sometimes it backfires. Life happens, people change, and you have to get on with living.
At first glance I was shocked, then sad and disappointed, and now I’m just downright mad.
It’s one thing to back away, but another to put the entire blame on someone else, making them and everyone around them miserable, second-guessing themselves, and depressed.
I realize this post is a little evasive, but I’m just venting.
I tried not to get involved when the turn-of-events took place. I was there when needed and gave advice only when asked. I worried. I fretted. I was just a phone call away and I encouraged through it all.
And then…I did something I don’t usually do. I blocked someone from my personal Facebook page. I defriended, unfriended, and let go.
Did it make me feel better? Maybe a tiny bit. But at least I won’t have notices I would rather not see come up in my newsfeed.
Now that’s all I have to say about the matter.
…I found this essay, long forgotten, never published, lurking in my drafts folder in WordPress. I wrote it sometime in September and it took me a few minutes to realize what this rant was all about.
Sometimes when we write down our feelings – get it off our chest, so to speak – that’s all it takes. BAM! We feel better. I now know that this turn-of-events was enevitable and for the best.
Funny how things turn out sometimes once you put it all behind you.
