FaceBook – Give it enough time you will find out who people are & what they think. That includes me as well. I do not expect everyone to like me or agree with me. That would be narrow minded for anyone.
It does over time point out the know-it-alls, those who think they are better than others along with the compassionate ones who care.
There will be those who are passionate about a certain cause. That is good as long as they do not expect others to have the same cause. There will be those who know it all (or so they think they do) and want to prove to you they do.
There will be those who have an excuse for everything wrong in their life and let everyone know that life is not fair. There will be those who no matter how bad things get have a smile on their faces.
We are all different, we are not the same. We think, feel, speak and act different. I have gained respect for some and lost it for others. No big deal – that is just the way life goes. I have had friends from the past whom I was once very close to. Now we are not. Not a bad thing, just that life moves on. I spent yrs in the Army but that is in the past. That life was over long ago. I spend from birth to age 20 in my hometown. Had a lot of awesome friends. But time has moved on. Some stayed, others moved away like I did.
FB has reacquainted me with others, like it may have done for you as well. But still time moves on.
I have concluded that over the past few years I have lost friends. My choice. But I can not say I have gained any. Not on FB, but personally. People I felt close to, or did anyway.
Once again I can assure you I lose no sleep because I feel that this is part of life. Finding new friends and losing old ones is the cycle. Becoming close to some and distant to others. Sometimes the common threads we have with others come unraveled. Before you read into this I can assure you that this has zero to do with my spouse. She is the one constant and bond I have always had.
Each of us goes through the new and the old. The beginnings and the endings. It is the cycle of life. Here is to great new things for 2017 for all of us and for America.
