It's A Sad Fact . . .Nobody Pays Attention
I tried to start a blog on FB, I am a writer by nature, especially if I am going thru something difficult or I am sad. I used to keep a journal when I was a kid, and have tried as an adult. I am also a talker, I wear my heart on my sleeve and it helps to let it out and be heard. I don't do well with receiving no feedback or when people don't even try to be understanding and see my perspective. I'm not the kind of person who dismisses other people's opinions or experiences. I don't proceed from a place of only wanting to hear what sounds good. If I trust you enough to confide in you, I am willing to listen and consider any advice or opinion that you offer. I firmly believe that if someone asks for advice or an opinion then they should be open-minded enough to receive whatever the response is. FB is definitely not the place to seek advice, or find very much sympathy or support, unless maybe you mention that someone has passed away. That's the only time people seem to notice or care. It has become a forum for showing off, showcasing your kids, and politics. In my eyes, FB has gradually become a shallow and self-indulgent forum where even people who you consider friends basically ignore you. Where has the personal connection disappeared to I wonder ? It just seems like so many people are caught up in a it's all about me-me-me attitude, its really kinda sad to me. Listen I'm not looking for sympathy or attention. It would just be nice to have people in my life who are genuinely interested in knowing how my life is going, and actually caring enough to show it by taking the time to ask and listen. Life is hard enough. Having some sort of a network of sincere support just makes it easier to get through the trials and challenges we endure. Wanting a personal connection to others is human nature for most people I think. Unfortunately it seems to be a rare commodity these days. All of this is simply my opinion, and an expression of how I feel. No offense or harm intended. It helps me immensely to be able to share my thoughts and reflect on them. Happy New Year to all !
