My Facebook First…
November 12, 2012 2 Comments
I will start with it is called a break-up because it is broken… not my line I know, but one I live by. I do not believe in relationship do-overs in the real or virtual world. So when a relationship with an acquaintance went south… way south… I did something very 2012 and I hit the button and unfriended them on Facebook. Frankly, I should have done the deed months ago because the monster that was building in them, against me, was growing exponentially in size and truthfully life is too short to fill the space of my time with nonsense and nonsensical people. And while this is no grand thing, the unfriending deed I did, it is something that I would not have done this summer when I first joined the “social media site of the century”.
Alas Facebook has changed me… not really but it has changed my perspective. Today I actually put my picture on the site also… another, like I would never ever do… but I guess there is an evolution occurring in me. I started blogging as a person who would lay her soul bare on the web, and then I became a virtual introvert. Then I found myself, place of comfort in the middle, though I will admit my middle is closer to being closed off, but I am a work in progress. Aren’t we all? This week I officially broke off an acquaintanceship with someone… (a friend told me it is official when some unfriends you on Facebook) and official, was what I wanted.
None of this is a big deal. It is however a first, a new chapter for me and these moments are never ones I take lightly. Self-awareness is important. So is sleep… though I don’t really do that one much. Nevertheless, I am going to call it a night and try.
