It's beyond me why people do what they do

Ok.  So we became friends online.  There are some people who don't think a virtual friendship is a "real" friendship, just like they don't think virtual AA meetings, are 'real meetings'.

Trust me - they're real.

Now, sure, I know all about the con's and the sicko's online - I've met my share (want email addresses?!).  But you, my friend, weren't like that.  You were real!  I know that because I followed you through social networking.  I know that because I became friends with your friends.  And I know that because you were everything a friend should be and because you reached through the screen and sent me God's love through your own hands!

Then, one day, you just unfriended me.  You froze me out. 

And I have no friggin' idea WHY.

Sure, sometimes friendships end, and we get it. 

But this is in the category of - I don't get it, I don't like it, I hurt, and it's building up that wall inside me, where now I'm even more afraid to get to know anyone.

Aren't you glad you contributed a brick?!

  2. Awww! I'm so sorry to hear that. People need to grow up and act like adults. Talk it out at least!

  3. sometimes, if you write joyful things, joy will find you, and lift your spirits!!

    i really value all my friends, on-line or real time!! i deleted my facebook for very personal reasons several months back. perhaps this friend is going through a personal struggle. perhaps a personal hand written note would be well received.

    i would fight very hard to maintain the friends that i love!!

    that's for stopping by my place and leaving a sweet comment. i'm so happy you enjoyed my special place!! xo

  5. I'm sorry that you had to go through this-- I have as well. But now you've opened up space for a great friend.

  6. I'm sorry :( its happened to me before as well. People act strangely on the Internet and I feel sometimes are not as genuine as they would be "in real life". It doesn't help, especially when you don't know the reason why. Anyway, HUGS to you.
