Facebook whine.. again

Sometimes it really hurts not to be able to say what I really want to say on facebook.  Why can’t I?  Because I strongly feel that what I believe is my belief and I shouldn’t push it on someone else unless they ask.  Same thing with my political beliefs, yes I have political beliefs.  But if I say something that offends someone it costs me.  It sometimes costs me a friend which is the most valuable thing in the world to me.  My political or religious beliefs are not worth losing a friend over.  And there have been occasions that it’s cost me money, retreat money and even more importantly Relay donations.  

So how do I handle keeping my mouth shut when everyone else is posting things that REALLY upset me… I unfollow them.  And as the elections draw closer I know for a fact I will be unfollowing an awful lot of stupidly opinionated people. 

And that’s all I’m going to say about that.

  1. I know what you mean, Marge. I have even had to unfollow my sister and sister-in-law! I am so tempted to post things on Facebook , but what is the purpose? I get so upset and I don't need that at this time in my life. I don't mind that people have different opinions......or beliefs......what bothers me is the hate that permeates this country now. Oh, geez; here I go again. Sorry. This too shall pass; but it will take a major shift in attitudes!
