Facebook

Just a little extra post!

I love facebook. I like posting photos and videos of my family, sharing quotes, funny links, jokes etc, chatting to friends and family via messenger and sharing my thoughts, whether they are general, cryptic, moaning, nonsense, whatever really!

I understand some people don't use facebook at all which is their choice and there are some who do use it but use it differently to me which is also fine.

There are no 'rules' to follow so if someone wants to post a ton of photos of their children, a photo of a meal they made, or share the news about a death of a loved one, or just have a moan about something then that is fine and should be able to without having comments over how they use facebook.

Just let people do what makes them happy, be mindful of your words and actions, be aware of consequences.

Oh and as an extra bit, times change, technology moves on, life would be quite boring if we didn't evolve and constantly wanted to stick with the old ways of doing things.

Getting a vibe

Before I start, for those with a similar mind-set to me, this blog post is not about adult fun!

I was trying to get to sleep last night and, as per usual, my mind starts ticking and wandering and before I know it I am analysing the world, people and their issues.

The particular thoughts I was mulling over last night were about 'vibes', or an emotional atmosphere if you will.

Have you ever been in a situation and had a feeling that something is wrong, or someone may not be truly being honest about their feelings and/or intentions? It can often be that only you have this feeling and if you voice it to others you run the risk of sounding either very paranoid or just plain weird. Is anyone with me?

I find myself in these situations on occasion and I like to trust my instincts and believe that the vibe I am getting is spot on. I have experienced this a few times now over the last few weeks with regards to 'friends'. Changes in behaviour, lack of contact, but noticing effort put in elsewhere, and just a general 'vibe' that something is not right. I like to get things out in the open, mostly because if I don't then I will have allsorts going through my mind until I do, and I dislike atmosphere!
Although, if my feeling is right then I have no idea what I may have done to deserve it. As far as I can tell I have not hurt anyone, ignored anyone or done harm.

However, there is always the risk that I am way off the mark, will look like a freak and potentially cause a whole new problem.

So, there you have it, a potentially meaningless ramble from a very tired mama bear.

Please do not mistake my kindness for weakness

Comments, clear lack of support, losing/changing friendships have all lead me to re-evaluate myself and as usual my blog serves the purpose of being therapeutic.

I may be:

soft-hearted
forgiving
optimistic
willing to see the good in people
caring
quiet
unassuming
lacking in confidence at times

This does not mean I enjoy being:

belittled
ignored
berated
ridiculed
gossiped about
used as a doormat


I am actually stronger than you may know and willing to take a leap of faith when necessary.

I have firm aspirations and goals in life that I know longer see as unreachable dreams. I may not shout them as loud as some and I may not exude the confidence in doing so, however, do not underestimate my tenacity, capability and on-going development.

I do not wish to change who I am but I do need to change who I keep close and who I keep my distance from.
