Sparked by the UnFriend!
Friday, January 06, 2017
Facebook has created a new social group: the "unfriends".
I was unfriended in the most ungracious way. A relative let me know that she was a very strong Christian, and that my opinions were, for all intents and purposes, wrong. Since I was vocal about not voting for the incoming president, she unfriended me. First, she publically humiliated me, and let family and friends know how offended she was by my words and actions. I really felt as though she was saying; "Shut up Jackie!"
After getting over the hurt and embarrassment, I am once again Sparked!
I'm motivated to continue to be myself and keep a positive attitude.
I am encouraged to be kind, respectful and gentle as I speak up.
I am SPARKED to be a strong and healthy person.
Remember, only those who do nothing and say nothing are not criticized.
