Bye bye, facebook.

12 04 2011

Over the past few years, I have grown tremendously as a person. With the age that I’m at, that is to be expected (hopefully). And over said years, I have come to realize a few things about myself, not all of them are fortunate.

For example, I like to pick fights. And I don’t just pick any ‘ole fight, anywhere, any time. When it comes to strangers, I am a non-confrontational person. But with the people I love, I can be a nit-picky little brat. And I have fought some of the biggest fights in the history of the world over things so incredibly insignificant. Why do I do this?, one might wonder. You know, since this trait is really, really awful. And the answer is, folks….

My ‘clue’ is literally so microscopic that I can’t even tell when I’m doing it. I will finish a fight, get so worked up that I feel like I need a run (and I am NOT a runner), and when I finallyyy get around to the girly analytical “Now, what was that fight really about…” stage, I realize that the fight was totally pointless, and that I didn’t actually need to throw dirty underwear at the man who left them laying on the bathroom floor.

As a result of said realization, I have also come to terms with a fairly disappointing fact:  I am my own soap opera.

By this, I mean that I am pretty good at creating my own drama.  Subconsciously picking fights and dealing with the aftermath is enough for one to deal with;  I really don’t need anyone else trying to brew more trouble in my already boiling cauldron.  So, after careful thought and consideration (and a few unwelcome “posts” on various profile pages), I decided that my facebook needed to go buh-bye.  For now, at least.  I won’t go into the dirty details, but suffice it to say immature people should not be allowed on to social networking sites.  Or at least not onto the ones that I like. 😉

vul·ner·a·ble [vuhl-ner-uh-buhl]  –adjective 1. capable of or susceptible to being wounded or hurt, as by a weapon: a vulnerable part of the body.   2. open to moral attack, criticism, temptation, etc.: an argument vulnerable to refutation; He is vulnerable to bribery.   3.

“Open to assault…” on my heart?

Thank you, baby, you’re right.  I’m wrong.  The last three years was a total waste for me, too.  I’m so glad we’re on the same page, and that you’ve chosen to pursue someone new, instead of fixing what we already had.
What?  Oh, that’s right, going on a date ISN’T pursuing someone.  I must have forgotten.

Thanks so much for clearing this up.
