Also, I'm not one of those friend-collectors on facebook, either. I'm down to 76 or so people, and they're either people I talk to directly regularly, wish I could keep in touch with, or would like to meet someday. If I don't know somebody who asks to add me, I'll add them and keep them on for a little while, but if I find out that I get tired of their religious/mom/politics/whatever in-your-face spam, or if we have nothing in common, or I still can't figure out why they'd add me, I delete them after awhile. I'd rather have a very small group of good, real friends, than a huge circle of fake people I can't stand.
I have less tolerance for bull and drama.... We are not in high school anymore.... Yes it's difficult and uncomfortable to say something to your friend but it's always the better more mature way to talk about it than play games. I agree wholeheartedly, a few good real friends is better than 300 that you don't have any real connection with
I will say this though..I post quite a bit of inspirational stuff that I want to save simply for myself...I also occasionally post about lessons I have learned...i toss them out there not at anyone in particular but oftne in hopes that they mightbe useful for any of my friends who to find them relevant...but I imagine that on occasion sometimes people could mistake that for their being some sort of intended target...I expect my friends to anticipate me in kindness...that is one major line in the sand for me....I have very few conditions for friends but the big three are; 1) don't lie to my face or talk behind my back, 2) if you don't plan on being there for me to the extent that you see me being there for you, don't sign up and 3) anticipate me in kindness...I can put up with just about anything else
When someone just HAS To make sure you KNOW not only that they're right, but just how absolutely perfectly right they really are, so they really over-explain their point until you want to push them into oncoming traffic. Congratulations. I'm stupid and wrong, here's your f*king cookie already, don't choke.
Went for my class after 8 days of being away and was excited and in a great mood...however my instructor was not...and got to hear about all the drama that went on at comp and the different personalities, and ended up feeling so down....I am a Pisces and I tend to absorb other people's negative energies a LOT....I have been working on trying to change that and I am better, but not always...this sucks because I have a showcase coming up and I could have used the time during my lesson to just practice for that..
