Hi my old friend,
I have just read the article you wrote earlier this week. I am sorry you thought I was harsh by ‘unfriending’ you. You are not in my life anymore though so to be honest I am surprised it bothered you. We have nice memories but time has moved on. If I saw you in the street I would probably look the other way or grab my phone and pretend I hadn’t seen you. You were clearly in my life for a season and not a lifetime.
I confess to having stalked your pictures. I know what your husband and kids look like. I feel like I know your life but I don’t. I just liked having a nosy. I liked seeing what you were up to and what your house looked like. I liked looking through your pictures every now and again if I was bored. Sometimes I would smile to myself about one of the outfits you were wearing or a new hairstyle (some nice and some not so).
I used social media to snoop on people. Why would I comment or hit like? I can’t be bothered with that nor do I have the time.
Yes we had fun and lots of it. Those days are gone though and I have moved on. So I decided to delete you and many others from social media. I felt like a hypocrite because we are not close anymore so why should I see intimate details of your life?
When I had my 2nd baby I decided to delete people who are no longer in my life. I was fed up of everyone putting so much focus on facebook. People have got so lazy these days – I don’t get a party invite if I am not on facebook. People forget my birthday because they weren’t online for a facebook reminder!!! What a joke.
I am pretty skint these days so I got sick of seeing all those exotic holiday updates and all those toned bodies. I had two c sections – go figure.
I may change my mind but right now that is where I am at. You will think I am turning a bit bitter as the years go on – call me a cynic but we are all different. That’s what keeps the world exciting right? Take care. I will always be your old friend, just not your ‘facebook’ one 🙂
