Status – Not a Sheep

image

There’s a refreshing element of honesty in authentic truthful social exchanges.

I am suddenly finding myself exhausted by people who like absolutely everything in their Facebook newsfeed.

I mean, do they really LIKE the particular image or passage or are they merely a robo-cheerleader for that particular friend? Perhaps, it’s a quest for Facebook popularity or maybe they have a spastic pointer-finger.

Whatever the reason, it becomes annoying to have the same peoples affirmations buzzing all over your screen like a pesky fly at a barbeque.

I whole-heartedly support – supporting those you love. I really do! However, mass dispensing likes like confetti casts a cloudy veil of doubt over ones sincerity. Motive – aims to please others – which is not entirely a bad thing.

On the other end of the spectrum are the Facebook creepers who never ever like or comment on anything. Do these people even have a pulse? Are they full-blown narcissists or simply innocent creepers?

Obviously there is no right or wrong – people are as different as the grains of sand on the seashore.

Also, I’m a tad bit PMS-y.

Maybe.

I rarely suck up to anyone – it’s not personal. My core is rock solid and shifts for no one.

For better and many times… for worse.

I am acutely aware of the quote that states, “Stand firm in your beliefs, even if it means standing alone.”

There is unwavering peace and liberation that comes with being absolutely honest with yourself and others.

Reciprocally, I was moved by the overwhelming support I received on my recent son-joining-the-Marines post.

Thank you for that, it truly means a lot. Like for reals… and I’m not just saying that.
