Moving On.

This is the first time I’ve done this, and I hope to not have to do it again really, but for the sake of my sanity, I have un-friended someone on Facebook. I mean, I’ve done that before with a couple people I didn’t actually know, people who were part of organizations I was also involved in. But this time, it was someone I actually knew, someone I considered a friend at one point. But that was before facebook. Since friending this person, I have had no positive interaction from them. And you know what, I don’t need that kind of constantly argumentative vibe. I’m too good — and tired — for that silliness.

    oh, yeah. i don't like doing that either, but sometimes you must control your environment to remain positive.

    I haven't had to do this yet but there are a few people I blocked right up front, specifically to avoid having to do this very thing down the line. It happens all the time, but now its just in a big old public forum which makes it so tough to keep it discreet.

    I know what you mean about the negative vibe on fb. I've hidden a few people from my news feed and that solved the problem for me. Hope all goes well for you.

torch bearing quietly

I will not act out, will not
yell or curse or slam doors,
will not make a scene -- you
do not deserve such a chance
to make an example out of me
to be proven right since you
are not. Instead, I'll stand
at this street corner, raise
my hand high and clench that
light which yet remains. It
will burn brightly, quietly,
fiercely before fading as I.

Then I'll be gone but found.
