November always reminds me to be thankful.
Since the election, I've decided I don't need to be friends with everyone on Facebook. So many sore losers (sorry, NOT sorry that I am not politically correct) and 90% of those are being mean and nasty and posting their rude comments on my friends' pages, as well as mine. My belief is you can post your opinions and beliefs on your own page, but don't post them on mine ... or on my other friend's pages who have never even met you!
Honest, I don't think I would have acted all whiny and negative if Hillary had won. Calling the election rigged. Dissing every cabinet choice. I looked back on my FB account and don't see any nastiness on my part when Obama won. And not very much during his last four years.
I decided to UNfollow some people until I realized they could still see when I posted on other people's pages. So I had to turn them off and block them. It is what it is. I'm sure they are not sad to miss out on photos of my grandsons!! Or see what I had for lunch.
I enjoy differences of opinions and conversations back and forth and having my sister call me out on some posts asking me to check the validity of websites. But no need to call names and and be condescending and vicious during these conversations.
These well educated people would NOT talk to me face to face in this manner (I don't think). Hiding behind a computer screen sure brings out the worst in people.
While I sure got a lot more accomplished on those few days I deactivated my account (which apparently still worked) I couldn't stay away.
Thanks for listening!
