I am so 'bursting' with happiness about my new found love interest and made the mistake of posting a note and a picture on Facebook about it... BIG mistake!! Unlike SP - I got some comments... and one from a relative, a crack that made me realize I can't share there like I can here. I ended up removing the post and the picture rather than posting a reply to the snide remark...

That's why I love SP even more! I can share here without fear of judgement and all I receive is supportive comments which is POSITIVE!!

Here I can put myself out there, share my inner most feelings in my blogs and know that I won't be judged.

So I let go of the negativity that this brought up inside me and I'm going to re-set my day to the brighter side of SP and my wonderful friends!

It's Satruday and it's a long weekend! Megan has her 10th birthday on Monday and LIFE IS GOOD!

I'm going to use the day to get caught up on some rest and hopefully re-set some of my messed up sleeping patterns. I managed to sleep in a bit today and may even take a nap to make sure I stay up later tonight.

I love weekends... especially when they are extended!!

    I don't care for facebook that much but, you're right you can be free here and there is no judgement that's bad for you. You're more supportive here people help you and give you advice that's goanna help you not tear you down. Plus we are family here. emoticon

    Nice thing about facebook is the fact that you can 'defriend' those who do not support you in your life and can make it private . . . we would stay away from negative people, do so also on facebook!

    I wonder if it comes from the relative anonymity here - few of us know each other (or even know of each other) in real life and most often if we meet that comes later, and by choice. I know I certainly spend more time on SP than on FB, and have certainly written a lot more here than I have anywhere else...

    I agree, Spark is so much less judgmental than Facebook!! The people here just "get it", which is so awesome! Funny how my Spark profile is wide open for the world to see and my FB page is locked up tight like a fortress, and yet I still feel better about sharing personal things here!!

    Stuff like this has happened to me many times on Facebook... which is why I don't hardly use it anymore! Spark is much more fun anyway!!

    It's too bad people have to be so negative and shame on those who feel the need to pass judgement onto others. If everyone would just put on a smile and be kind to those around them, it would be a MUCH better world! You're right though...Spark is definitely a place where we can share without any judgement and that's the way it should be. Don't be afraid to show your deserve to be happy!

  Facebook seems to be on a negative side with people around me lately. I use it only to post things of interest that I find on the net. Sort of like a business tool, nothing personal and it seems to be fine. My friends I just email.

Hope you have a GREAT WEEKEND!!
