Just another pointless diatribe...nothing to see here, move along....

It is disturbing to me to witness so many people blissfully untouched, unmoved, uneffected by the tragedies that are occurring to very REAL people every day. How is this possible??

I am all for relaxing and enjoying oneself. No one enjoys reading and laughing at a funny story more than I do. Laughter is essential in my life, so I embrace it whenever I find it. That said, I have something serious to say.

People remove me from their circles quite regularly. My friend count fluctuates frequently, so therefore, I pay very little attention to it. I suspect they have their reasons and the truth is, I don't really care. I rarely add people of my own accord. Chances are you fanned me and I added you, to be nice. I have several hundred fans and less than 200 hundred friends, because I don't add everyone who fans me.  

Adding someone to your circle is NOT a contract. We are NOT bound to one another. One of us enjoyed something the other wrote and wanted to receive a heads up the next time that occurred. We aren't married. We don't have to speak every day and I don't need to know what you ate for breakfast this morning. 

I have my own life. Including a husband, three children, a home and an extended family. I appreciate you being a part of my online family, but don't get your panties in a wad if I put my REAL LIFE before my virtual one. What kind of mother or wife would I be, if I didn't??

My youngest daughter has a t shirt that proudly proclaims, "It's ALL about me. Deal with it!" It's cute and she actually believes that to be true.
She is eight years old, she doesn't know that the world does not revolve around her yet. And that's okay. She will learn.

YOU, on the other hand , are supposed to have already learned that life lesson. Whining about other adults not showing you the attention that you feel that you deserve is not only ridiculous, it's beyond pathetic. You don't need EP, you need a psychiatrist. You have issues.

And finally, not to rain on your parade, but there are REAL tragedies happening in the world. You know, earthquakes,disease, tsunamis, cancer, famine, abuse, loss, neglect, even death, etc....

Sadly, it's NOT all about you or ME, either.

I feel very lucky to have you in my life as well, mi amor ~

That was so good & so true. Perfect. I'm happy to be part of your circle & whatever time you have for me is just enough because any of your time is a gift. I hope I can be a good friend to you because I feel lucky to know you. *big hugs & kissies* :)

LOL.....I share your sentiments, BlokeTop....

Perhaps I will do that. I would like to just forget the entire incident. I've said my apologies, it's old news, as far as I'm concerned. Thanks honey.

You can edit the story too, should you feel that it has run its course... : )

LMAO....cute, jimmy. &hearts;<br />
<br />
I want to delete this story, but I hate to do that to all the kind people that left comments.....*grrr*...

Well... I can only add that you... errr... have an ...uhm... interesting chest... *cough*...

I believe people can and often do change, aviva. I appreciate your comment.

LOL....here, have the rest of the bag, WIB.

no, don't mind at all ... just don't drop too many crumbs ... pass me another cookie!

no, don't mind at all ... just don't drop too many crumbs ... pass me another cookie!

*crawls under there with you* Hope you don't mind. I brought the Playgirl and the chocolate chip cookies!

I must have been asleep for the past week Chiquita cos I missed all of this and have no idea what this is all about ... hope it's all sorted out anyhow. **crawls back under duvet**

I didn't even go look, Pix called me and warned me to avoid it...lol...thank goodness for my friends! *Mwah Pix, peanlo,Kitten, Vignette, DEGrated, Marji, Mother,JRGEN, Shep, Fungirlmmm, Mewold*

I very rarely delete comments unless they are rude are obviously written to instigate unnecessary drama. <br />
<br />
I appreciate your opinion as well as your comment. <br />
<br />
I wish I could tell you that I handled this in the best possible way that I could have, but I honestly don't know if I did. It was a somewhat emotionally charged gut reaction. Her "so called" reason for removing people seemed to me to be a bit self-indulgent, "because these people don't tell me how utterly amazing I am on a routine basis." <br />
<br />
It was so ridiculous to me that I had to take issue with it.<br />
<br />
Whatever, it is in the past now. Well, except to those that have nothing else worthwhile to drone on about.<br />
<br />
Thank you for reading and commenting.

I am a little crazy. lol

P.S. I don't think you are one of the crazies either! Sorry I didn't make that clear. *hugs*

Nooo,Mother. I was referring to the people that are badmouthing me without knowing the whole story. I did not mean you, honey! I never thought or said you were a loser.

Interesting story. As always, there are two sides to every story, but yours makes a great deal of sense. I have a slight volumn of friends, and I can't talk to all of them every day. But I do enjoy when I see one of their stories, or when one of them comments on one of mine. But you are right. We are not tied to each other. There are a extremely few of my EP friends who have actually become real life friends with me. I cherish them.

Hey sugar. I'm great. Thank you for asking. How are you today?

@nadtime, perhaps if I had been her friend a bit longer than a few weeks, I could have read her stories and gotten to know her better. She made the assumption about me first when she removed me.<br />
<br />
Doesn't matter. It's old news now. Move on.

LOL@ Smooches. Perfect timing, mi amor. *blows you a kiss*

LOL...I love 80's music!

Ohhh I just love stalkers (insert sarcastic face here) lol Gosh so many of my friends are commenting on this story. I think we need a reunion. We can all sit around a campfire and sing love songs from the 80's. ((giggles())

<br />
You are too kind...lol..<br />
<br />
Thanks for the comment. = )

Fungirl, honey.....I know you and I are cool. We go wayyy back and I would stalk your booty, if you dumped me...haha...

haha! It is not your place to make me feel special and that is hilarious that someone thinks others can make them truly feel special. I love you Chic. I am cleaning out my circle but it has to do with changes within me and not you. You will notice that I haven't removed you from my circle nor will i because I see you as real and unedited and i like that a lot. I may not comment on a lot of your stories but i read them and dayum it, if I don't make you feel special then so be it. We are friends and that does not mean I have to talk to you every day of my life but that i know you are there when I need you and that i am here when you really need me. ((hugs))

And YES, DEG, IT IS ALL ABOUT YOU!!!!!!! *Mwahhh*

I love your little messages, D! I always try to respond.

Thank you, peanlo. I appreciate the positive feedback from my true friends.

If it makes you feel better, than I concur! LOL

*applauds* AMEN to that!

I feel soooo much better. *sigh*
