Up until February I belonged to FB. I left when my account and my privacy was compromised. I haven't looked back...until now.
I miss the cute pics of my grand babies and hearing of the small things that are shared on a daily basis. A fish died...a play at school....a beloved pet's death.... I miss hearing about these things.
I miss the contact with my nursing school buddies, and my work friends. I miss my S-I-L's and their families.
I miss my BFF.
I may have had 70 or 80 friends on my friend list....or so I thought...but since leaving, I have heard from none...other than a few close family members. This is a little surprising and a little disappointing, as after all, my friend list was long....or so I thought....
FB, it seems, creates an illusion/delusion of friendships and relationships.
I may go back one day. I hope I don't. It all depends on how lonely I get, actually. For now, though, I'll refrain. I have more time on my hands since leaving. I have good friends that I have made through blogging, and for the most part, I have more in common with those people than I did with 90% of the friends I had on FB.
Do you cultivate your garden of friends? Do you nurture relationships?
BTW... Thank you to all that visit, and leave comments. I know that I post infrequently due to work commitments....but I love it when you say hello. I know it takes a minute to leave a comment, but your visit, and comments are really appreciated.
