well, i seen it on facebook so it must be true!!!

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

the invention of social media has made it almost impossible for those of us who choose to use it, to keep quiet many details of our lives.
about a year ago a friend said something to me that really angered me, he said, you shouldnt live your life on facebook.
so i challenged him to go to my facebook page and find one thing on there that was about my private life.
there are very few details.
no relationship status, very few pics of me with the man i am in a relationship with.
no job status or former jobs.
i post mostly joke memes or some silly comment, such as my current status concerns americas got talent.
today however, i did post that my personal life is none of YOUR business, meaning a certain person who insists on coming up to me every time i go into the store where she works and asks me questions about MY life and my personal business.
so today i told her finally once and for all that if i want her to know i will be sure to run in and tell her.
its childish but its so angering, you cannot go buy a newspaper and a cup of coffee without her running up asking questions that really dont concern her.
but seriously, i share more here on sp than i do on facebook.
mostly because none of my everyday friends or family are on here with me and most of you, sp friends, are also going thru challenges of one kind or another, weight, substance, financial, relationship issues, whatever it is, you can relate and offer words of advice and encouragement and very very little judgement.
its refreshing to have this outlet to vent and to track my food and exercise and to talk about things that are making me happy, sad, angry, whatever.
sometimes i will post something on facebook and before the day is out i delete it.
but i do not live my life on facebook.
i do not post when i am moving, when i am fighting with my family or my man or my son.
i do not post about family issues at all.
and i have pretty much stopped posting about my weight or my walking.
i keep that for here.
and for my closest friend and my doctor.
this was just a little rant about how i got so angry in my own life that i took it to the social media to allow others to take it to others to take it to others, so that eventually all the tounges would be a waggin and fingers pointing.
just take this advice, if you ask someone something once and they give you a vague answer, maybe dont ask them again.
unless your intention was to anger them to begin with.
and the advice for myself, tell them plainly the first time so that they have no reason to ask again and therefore save myself the anger.
other than all that it was a good day, i visited with my good friend and had lunch with some others and came home to a very very clean house, courtesy of my sons g/f and im getting to work a little this week and going tomorrow to get my hair colored and thinking about getting a dog.
the end.

    Don't have a fb and don't want it, now with what happened to you I don't want it even more. Just too much drama and people making things up about you.

    I don't do facebook, probably because I spend too much time here.

    One of my riding buddies (can't recall who, needless to say not a close friend) guilted me into signing up for FB; like you I don't post much personal stuff there!
(I save it for here, that's why I marked my page PRIVATE)


P.S. of course you need a dog! Just please go to shelter & adopt; don't shell out big bucks at pet store or breeder for a purebred...

    I hate when people make assumptions and ask questions that should not be asked. I'm working on how to deal with these people, but it's frustrating. I'm glad we do have SP to rant and rave and not have people judge us. I hope you day and week go better for you.
