So, … Tis True

Everything has a breaking point.  Things you think you absolutely cannot bear and things you are SURE you will NEVER get over do eventually fade.  Often sooner than you think, we adapt and move on.  Or we are old and forget.  Toe-MA-toe, Tu-mah-toe.

I was cleaning up drafts today and deleted a whole big bunch of angst.  Whew!!! I feel the bad ju-ju lifting up and up and away in that beautiful balloon (kids’ song ear worm that I will not subject you fine folks to on this hazy gray day).

Lulu gave me her theory … that people choose not to share the bad stuff because doing so hurts too much.  She says to her that’s okay because … well because those things are private after all.  BUT silence has a BIG but … not sharing doesn’t mean they are not experiencing some genuine crap.  Everybody has something going on because nothing is perfect.  Sometimes those with the outward appearance of “having it all together” are the most in turmoil.  They have just become adept at covering the flaws.

How sad!  I want everyone to wallow with me in my misery.  Pity me!!

No I don’t want that.  I wish peace and happiness to the world.  Yet I am grateful for the sulky, suck-ass, kick in the gut stuff too since that is how I know the world is full of real true honest to goodness beauty.  Let’s just say that I am not buying the social media version of people’s perfect worlds anymore.  You don’t fool me.

Oh and FB can suck it because you have blocked me from sharing my own posts as they do not meet community standard.  What standard is that?  Huh?  Bite me!!!

As always, more to come.

    1. This feels personal. The folks at WP confirmed the block was on the FB side. FB help support center is helpless. No one to speak to and they automatic reply says we can’t respond to your email.

  1. YOU were blocked from FB? I don’t get that one at all. As for sharing the bad news, it has its pros and cons. I dislike posting bad news over and over, and have closed my blog due to it at times (now I’m more into hiding). Bad stuff is real, too. At some point the writer and the readers just have to do what works for them. For some readers that means going away. But for some readers, who are going through similar things, well… it draws them in. Before I did the move to New England I had a huge bonfire of old writings of mine, letters, diaries… it felt wonderfully uplifting to do that and I don’t regret it.

  2. FB doesn’t let me in anymore. They said they’d sent me an email about three months ago. So I stay out which I should have anyway after I left in 2015.
    Sending you a hug just because… 🙋‍♀️🐝
