The X-Factor (Love you Nae)
Facebook is wonderful.
Facebook is also the devil.
I have reconnected with people I haven't talked to in years, a couple of exes included.
One in particular, I thought I really missed and as we talked more and more, I realized I didn't give him the credit as a man, that he deserved. Then one day I made him mad. I've come to realize that he's the same spoiled brat that he always was and that he did me a favor by cutting me off, so I'm doing him a favor by cutting him off.
Another came to me with his marital issues. Just needed someone to listen. I'll be an ear for just about anyone, but don't ask me my opinion if you can't handle it. Well he did. I don't think he liked what I had to say, but he never said it out loud. What he did do was catch me packing for a weekend trip and then he started hounding me about the who's, what's and where's. Dude, do you realize that we dated in the 80's? I don't owe you shittake! (I gave up cussing for Lent).
One of my best friends back in the day? I've heard she randomly snaps on people and for no particular reason...yeah *raised eyebrows*
It's not all bad though. I'm also connected with a couple of exes that I don't talk to so much anymore, but we always have great conversation, unless we talk about why things didn't work out and I feel I'll always have a friend in them. They don't sugarcoat things and tell me when I'm effing up. (Love you Skillet and Tygar)
Man, there's a reason the past is the past...maybe, through Facebook, you can see how far YOU'VE come...maybe it's not the devil after all.
Oh and FYI...if we reconnected and we don't talk much anymore, you just might be one of these people. Hey, I might be one of yours!
