FB has caused a lot of problems in families lives and that of friends. I read of divorces, lovers break up, old friends cut each other. Even physical attacks, murders and suicides. WE MUST REMEMBER WHAT IS WRITTEN, IS READ BY FAMILY AND FRIENDS, AS WELL AS HUNDREDS OF OTHER FOLK WHO ARE GONNA JUDGE YOUR RESPONSE AND STATEMENTS.
(A friend, David Luke, I learned about his BD on FB. GOOD STUFF!)
The blood letting is because folks cannot accept other ideas or they are nasty to folks who try to be themselves. That is a funny statement in itself (not haha) . We all think we are being ourselves. I laugh when a young person thinks they are being ‘themselves’ and actually they are just reflecting their peers.
(We get to see Great Grand kids on FB, this is Stella)
But back to face book. I am there very seldom but I often am embarrassed about friends who CUT each other. My friends mean more to me than that. I have friends who are Democrats, I mean died in the wool democrats. I would never hurt their feelings. They Know my stand, if they exhibit an opinion opposite mine, Okay, that is their opinion. (THEY ARE WRONG OF COURSE, BUT ONLY IGNORANT, NOT MEAN, LOL)
I hate it when I see personal vendettas start. One of my family or friends cutting another. NOTHING GOOD can come from it. That brings to mind my buddy Sonny. He and I disagreed on a couple major things but it never got in the way of a GREAT friendship. We both agreed, ONCE words are said, all the apologizes in the world will not erase them. You can forgive someone, but you cannot erase your memories.
(We get to see Elsie from Utah, Her grandma puts movies on FB also, FB can be great! (Of course that is BEN her Dad!))
I have never understood MEAN SPIRITED people. Most mean spirited people don’t even know they are MEAN! They are just being themselves. Me? I have opinions on Gun Control, abortion, National Debt, welfare, SS, Medicaid, Medicare, Obamacare, EVEN LOVE! You might not like them, but I do have them.
(ON FB /Sherry can keep up with this beautiful niece & her family up in the cold country, that is Candy & she is a grandma??)
I know something that I am comfortable with, and that is, my opinions are mine, of course they could be wrong, but I own them. Most come from up bringing, some come from honest study and logic of my own. I have apologized. Most times it isn’t even hard. I love my friends, and I would do nothing intentionally to hurt them. I have been misunderstood, but I tried not to get MAD.
(This is not an apology: I’m Sorry, but if you had not………… That is throwing another insult.)
(This IS an apology: I’m Sorry, I was wrong!!)
Anyway if I am ever stupid on FB, feel free to tell me.(In an e-mail, LOL)
A good friend, any friend deserves, at the least, the benefit of a doubt.
I love seeing these old cars and service stations, they are like old friends, solid and real.
