Well, Ive been stewing for a few days. I have been trying to decide how to put my thoughts into words. I have huge pet-peeves with recent activity on Facebook. I can not for the life of me figure out why when I post something on someones page, they delete my comment. If I am on their friend list and they have made a comment or have asked a general question and I respond, why delete my post? I'd rather they delete me all together than to dismiss my comment. In my mind, I see that as not caring of my opinion or being ignored. I believe I have people in my friend's list that I actually care what they are doing as well as value their opinion. If not, they wouldn't be there.
I also have an issue with people that want to be my friend via Facebook, but do not speak to me in public. Why? It does not make sense to me. To me, its like they want to know my personal business, but I'm not worthy enough for a hello or smile when passing in public. I don't know, maybe its just me and my self-esteem is so low, that I am reading this entirely wrong. I mean, I do not expect everyone to respond to every single thread I start. I also realize that we are all busy with daily activities and are preoccupied. I do consider myself to be friendly and outgoing. I would do anything for anyone. Im usually smiling and trying to say hi to everyone, even at Wal-Mart when my cashier is not looking at me. It just doesn't make sense to me.
Last, but not least. Why do some people want to be your friend in private? They will email or send private message, but they do not want their other friends to know they are speaking to you. I mean, I'm not a wild woman of the world. I have lost friends because I choose not to drink and party. I do regard myself as a Godly woman and tasteful. I have excellent references.
I have been dealing with the above for a while.I was angry about these things yesterday, until I received my daily text scripture from my friend, Donna. John 13:34 As a new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. This was my God-moment. I mean, I felt like I had been slapped in the face. I was so convicted after reading the verse and realizing how cynical I have been. Who am I to question these things? So what if I get my feelings hurt? I needed to be reminded that God is in control and trivial things do not matter. If I live to show love to others as He did, I am being a disciple for Him. I know I'm on His friend list and He on mine.
