“A messy house is a must - it separates your true friends from other friends. Real friends are there to visit you not your house!” ― Jennifer Wilson
Facebook friends are finally getting to know one another and using the unfriend option to show it!
Seems like Social media friendships are mostly made of people who only like you while you are sharing dumb (un)funny things and cat videos and pictures on your timeline. The truth is that most Facebook friends these days are friendships made of selfish, phony, nosy and jealous people who know absolutely nothing about you! And when they finally find out something true and real about you, they simply cannot accept you because there isn't any respect or consideration in that "friendship".
Friends respect each other's opinions even if they do not agree with them. If you don't like what someone shared on their timeline it doesn't give you the right to disrespect them or call them names. Simply accept that just like you have an opinion, everyone else does. Unless its based on facts, opinions are simply an emotional reaction to whatever people are dealing with.
People have the right to get emotional and fight for what they believe in, but don't have the right to force others to support them.
If they go to you, defend your views, you are allowed to. But don't go to people's facebook posts trying to convince them to support you! Would you go to their homes and force your views on them? I bet you'd think it's disrespectful if someone came to your door and did that. Some people can't even stand Jehovah's witnesses coming to their door and they are not even coming to people's door to insult them.
Share your thoughts and your point of view and be confident in what you believe in and whatever you support. If your friends support your views, they will like and even share your thoguhts with their friends. If they don't, they will (should) simply respect your feelings, and leave it alone (unfollow them) if they have no suppoting words to share with you.
If you disagree strongly with the moral beliefs of this "facebook friend", unfriend them; walk away. But walk away with class knowing that you have accepted and respected someone else's right to defend their views. Because we live in #democracy and you have the same right as everyone else to #freedomofspeech.
It's my opinion that people should be more emotionally intelligent. Because when people act based on their emotions, most of the time the outcome is not good when shared with others. Even when the emotions are meant to be good.
