My thoughts about Facebook
Lately I’ve have had a lot of changes in my life and because I write this blog everyone knows all about my life. I have to tell you some of the responses have brought me to tears, the support and the love I have received on Facebook is overwhelming and I truly appreciate it.
When I got approved for my new home and finally went to closing so many of you reached out to me, telling me how proud you were of me and how far I’ve come. For someone who for so many years was put down and belittled, telling me I could never do anything on my own, your words were music to my ears, as some times I still hear his words in my head. Yes, I really did this, all by myself, all of it the remodeling, the moving, all of it was me and me alone.
I have reconnected with so many old friends that I have lost touch with and without this platform would likely have never found again. I reconnect with my first best friend Cookie, through her cousin on here. My dear cousin Carol, my bestie, Jill and many high school friends I have missed so much.
I don’t have anyone who isn’t my friend or family on my Facebook page, I don’t need a million people on my page just the important ones.
I also keep up with family that is spread out all over the county, I get to see their kids and grandkids, I am still part of their lives even though we don’t get to see each other often.
This is a great thing, you can give support and encouragement to someone, you can be happy for their victories and feel sorrow for their pain. You can make them laugh and laugh when your down just by seeing their posts.
It can make you feel less alone when you think no one understands, you can stand up for your beliefs with others and realize that everyone had their own opinion and that’s cool too.
People talk bad about Facebook, they say it’s a breeding ground for cheating yeah, because no one cheated before Facebook, get real!
Yes, you can find more people but you can do that online as well. You don’t want to know everyone’s on goings, okay don’t read them, people you don’t like are on there, that is what a unfriend button is for, use it.
For me Facebook is a community of people you chose to be in your life, to share your good times and have support for the not so good times. To keep in contact with loved ones and find long lost friends. It is a platform for great things if you chose to use it that way.
Look I write my blog on here every day and I actually help encourage people with my words. How amazing is that?
So today my friends, use Facebook like you would real life, if you want to catch up with someone go for it, if there is a negative person, cut them out of your life, if you don’t want to hear someone’s crap, block them, it’s easy but it all starts with you.
To all my Facebook friends and family I want you to know how much I appreciate your love and support, thanks for always being there for me, I love you all.
