We all have them ... they never speak to us ... never acknowledge us ... yet, they requested to be our 'friends' on Facebook. But ... THEY ARE ALWAYS THERE.
Sometimes, we do the same thing when we request, and are accepted as a ... Facebook Friend. We go on about our lives ... we know it's alright not to speak ... it's just nice to be friends. We can speak anytime ... when we do ... it's special.
WE DON'T LEAVE BAD FEELINGS ON SOMEONE'S FACEBOOK WHILE WE SIT THERE SAYING, DOING ... NOTHING. Admit it ... everytime you see certain names ... you wonder WHY THE HELL do you let them sit there IN YOUR WORLD?
Isn't it a wonderful thing when someone sees your name there ... and they are glad you are their Facebook Friend? I like that. The friends that I don't know personally are people I met online ... I liked them very much. They made a good impression on me.
There was always something good about them that made me want to choose them to be my Facebook Friends. I love good people ... if I ever let you be on my Facebook ... feel honored. I truly, really wanted to let you into my FACEBOOK HOME ... I look forward to you being there.
Feel honored also ... if I take you off. Why? It saves you and I both face ... neither of us has to say anything ... to hurt the other's feelings. It simply means you made a mistake in coming into my FACEBOOK HOME for whatever your reasons are. It simply means I ... have to let you go for my own mental health.
We can go our way, if we ever meet ... we can smile, greet ... pass and re-pass peacefully. I know you don't like me ... you know I don't like you. We could like each other, not know what to say to the other ... that's sad.
But ... always remember this ... I LET YOU come into MY Facebook World by accepting you ... hoping you would make me feel happy for you being in it.
You don't always have to say anything ... once in a while ... just speak. Hell ... I just let you come into my Facebook Home ... I didn't have to do that. YOU ARE SITTING THERE ON MY FACEBOOK COUCH ... just as if in my home. .
Would you come into my home ... sit on your ass on my couch ... not speak to me? Would you sit there while I went about my every day ... trying to pretend to be invisible ... thinking I don't notice you?
All in trying to learn my life, know all about me ... not let know you are there?
I got a secret for you ... I'm most aware of you ... because nobody acts like you do. Especially when I've known you through the years ... and I accept you in my world ... you go your way trying to pretend you aren't there. I let you in because I hoped to be glad I did.
Sometimes ... the past can be mended if there was ever bad feelings. Sometimes, people can come closer.
I am talking here about people I ... have known for years. Hell, we may be related. Doesn't matter ... YOU know who YOU are.
I know you are there ... every day of my life. YOU ARE SITTING IN MY FACEBOOK HOME ON MY FACEBOOK COUCH ... AND TRYING TO BE INVISIBLE.
YOU WANT TO WATCH MY LIFE, NOT SHARE YOURS ... I KNOW YOU ARE THERE.
HEY ... I REALLY KNOW YOU ARE THERE. MY MIND STAYS ON YOU. IF YOU DON'T SPEAK ... HOW DO I KNOW YOU DON'T MEAN ME BAD THINGS IN MY LIFE? HOW DO I KNOW YOU ARE THERE IN A GOOD WAY?
My wish is ... you take yourself off my Facebook page, save face ... if you aren't there in a good way. Do it ... yesterday. Do it ... now.
My wish is ... for you to stay out of my life just as I do yours ... if you aren't a sincere person. You don't need me ... I don't need you. You sure don't like me ... guess what? The feeling is mutual ... I don't like you.
If I take you off my Facebook page ... don't let it bother you. You know you SHOULDN'T BE THERE in the first place.
How many people have I watched ... on Facebook ... get upset, try to voice how they feel about this? They didn't know how to say it ... because they don't want to appear to be ugly ... they didn't want to hurt someone.
THOSE SOMEONES ... take advantage of that to STAY IN YOUR FACEBOOK HOUSE TO BE ON THE FRONT ROW TO ... WATCH YOUR LIFE. They know you don't want to hurt their feelings ... they know it's hard for you to decide to take their asses off your Facebook Friend List. They know ... you won't.
Well, guess what? If you see your name taken off my Facebook Friends in the future ... don't let it make you feel bad. If you are sincere ... you will send another request to be for-real Facebook Friends. I will accept you and be glad to.
If you don't send another friend request ... it gives you that chance to go on your way ... no one is hurt or ... has to feel bad. Go on ... fly away into your own life ... fly to bigger, better things ... people. I am only myself ... you don't need me to spy on.
See ... we all know WHO THESE PEOPLE ARE ON OUR FACEBOOKS.
I can sit here and write my list of WHO I have my mind on ... and will be watching for the next week. Either they speak to me, let me know they are here in a good way ... or ... they will will definitely go on their on way ... with a REMOVE FACEBOOK FRIEND NUDGE right out that FACEBOOK DOOR.
GOOD PEOPLE DON'T MIND SPEAKING OUT WHEN THEY DON'T HAVE A HIDDEN AGENDA. Good people who care about you will ... let you know it ... all feels good.
I try to select my Facebook Friends for different reasons. To be honest ... I have lots of 'good' friends I chose years ago. We know each other's there ... but, we don't have to say anything ... because we KNOW WE ARE THERE IN A GOOD WAY. The special thing here is ... we know IF WE DO SPEAK ... IT'S IMPORTANT ... IT'S SPECIAL.
I love dog people ... I love animal people ... I love people who care about the less fortunate, homeless people, animals. I love all kinds of people.
Birds of a feather ... people judge us by the friends we have. The strange thing is ... no one can judge me by the friends I have ... all of them 'are birds of a different feather'. I love that I have unusual friends from different walks of life. I don't like just one flavor of ... ice cream.
Going back to this ... what about those friends who send you a friend request on your Facebook ... that know you? Never speak to you? Never acknowledge you once you go to the FACEBOOK DOOR ... OPEN IT, LET THEM COME IN ... YOU ARE WELCOMING THEM INTO YOUR FACEBOOK WORLD?
Do you ever wonder why? I think about them all the time ... I am sensing them all the time on my Facebook ... I am always aware of them without them knowing it.
I AM THINKING ABOUT THE GOOD FEELINGS I HAD ... WHEN I ANSWERED MY FACEBOOK DOOR ... WELCOMED THEM INTO MY WORLD. THEN ... THEY COME IN LIKE A GHOST TO FLOAT, HANG AROUND ... NEVER SPEAKING. WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?
Did they hope I'd let them in ... go on to forget about them ... not know they are roaming through my FACEBOOK BEDROOM, looking at my personal things. Make themselves at home in my PHOTOS Room while stealing my photos, seeing all they can see?
I know you are there. I KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN THERE, WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN DOING. THAT'S ROBBING ME WHILE YOU VISIT ME ... HOPING I FORGOT YOU WERE IN MY HOME. Hell, I don't need enemies ... I got you! Come on in here ... rob my ass!
Yes, as long as I have a Facebook page, you have a Facebook page ... that's YOUR FACEBOOK HOME online. I see now ... why I have seen many people become upset ... I have been seeing a lot of things going on ... when certain Facebook Friends stay in my FACEBOOK HOME ... thinking I don't know they are there.
Have you seen people who want to know about you, your life ... go register for a FACEBOOK page ... make up a name, throw a photo on it of a handsome man, woman?
Well ... there are ways you check into that ... find out out they had an ulterior motive for doing that. They aren't there to be your friend ... they are dishonest and I won't go on to say more ... they are bad people. Maybe good people in their life ... but, 'bad' ... when it comes to your life.
Maybe they don't say things to you because they are afraid to ... or they don't know what to say. Maybe ... they just want to be quiet friends and share your life without interfering in it. Maybe some of them ... don't like you, want to be in a position to know what you are doing.
Whatever reason ... just know this ... in the next few weeks I am going to take off several people on my Facebook .... I'm going to escort the ones who are in my FACEBOOK HOME ... who don't speak to me ... I'm going to nudge them out the FACEBOOK DOOR.
So, if you are one of those people ... just know you don't have to take it personally. I'm helping you and helping myself. Mentally ... it isn't good for either of us ... always having to wonder.
You have to always wonder if ... 'I can see what you are doing, taking from my Facebook' ... I have to wonder, always checking behind you to see if you are a good FACEBOOK FRIEND.
Maybe if you feel the same way I do about your FACEBOOK FRIENDS ... and you want to tell them the same thing as I'm doing now ... feel free to share my article with them. I give you permission. I wrote this because I've had these feelings ... and watching others become upset over the same thing. I'm giving voices to everyone's concerns ... my concerns.
I am going to take certain people off my Facebook page ... help them out my FACEBOOK DOOR OUT OF MY FACEBOOK HOME during the next several weeks.
These are people who already know me, may be related ... and several others that don't make me feel good while they are in my FACEBOOK HOME.
I may be helping some out the Facebook Door making a mistake by misjudging ... it would mean a lot if you told me I made a mistake ... I would welcome you back into my FACEBOOK HOME.
If you don't do this ... we both know you were here not in a good way. I wish you good in just going on your way ... don't come back to visit. Don't waste my time.
Also ... if you feel you don't want me on your FACEBOOK FRIENDS ... please take me off. I know it works two ways ... this is the time to do it. No one has to feel bad, hesitant to go remove the other.
Just know this ... I am a sincere Facebook Friend ... even if I'm not saying anything. I have too much to write, draw, do, care for our Pups, live ... to waste my time in coming to your Facebook Home to spy. I have a life. I see what's on my Newsfeed ... there, I will sometimes comment or like. I'm not a bad ... Facebook Friend.
So ... for the FACEBOOK FRIENDS WHO AREN'T REALLY FRIENDS AT ALL ...
IT'S TIME FOR ME TO ASK YOU TO LEAVE MY FACEBOOK HOME ... YOU HAVE WORN YOUR WELCOME OUT IN MY ONLINE HOME.
Note by this Author: I have watched, studied the past several years on my FACEBOOK HOME. I know everything that's been going on it ... I haven't said anything. NOW ... it's a different story. Why?
Because I think people have a lot of nerve ... and they do ... to come to your home, knock on your door, ask to come in to visit ... never speak, never do anything but, watch your every online move.
They sit on your FACEBOOK COUCH eating FACEBOOK POTATO CHIPS propped up on FACEBOOK PILLOWS watching your world like a giant FACEBOOK FLAT-SCREEN TV.
They sit there letting pieces of their potato chips fall on your FACEBOOK CARPET that leave a trail directly to everywhere they sneak around in your FACEBOOK HOME. They hope you won't notice their mess.
What's so bad is when they leave a mess ... in your FACEBOOK BATHROOM ... never flushing their ugliness away.
One day you come in ... sick of it all ... you say 'it's damn time to clean, rearrange my FACEBOOK HOUSE'.
