The “Un-Friend” Situation

by Sankinator on April 18, 2012

The sorrow I feel when I decide to un-friend someone is deep and strong. I truly feel that those in my list are *really* my friend.

So, when I come to the realization that it’s not true and not real, it hurts. I really feel it. I wish it didn’t have to be this way.

I’ve learned the only way to remove pain from my life is to nip it myself. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I refuse to be miserable at the hands of others. Coming to this decision was long and extremely arduous process. I do not take this lightly. I feel that this person did not and does not share the same feelings for me and my family as I do for them.

I know that they will never understand how I feel and how they did me and my family wrong. It is for that reason that the scales tipped in favor of the “un-friend” move. It will have some serious fall-out. I can only hope that time will heal the pain this decision may cause. It’s possible that in the future I will send a new request to be my friend should the situation change, though I highly doubt that it will. It is not in this person’s nature to concede or admit any fault, let alone recognize an error and apologize for it.

I will still interact with this person and be as civil as I can possibly be since I still love this person. I just don’t have to share this space with them if I so choose. This is not a war, a battle nor do I feel it has to be a subject of inquiry. As you and I both know, this will have intense ramifications. I’ll be ostracized by mutual “friends” for my decision an I know it and I’m ready.

Make no mistake, this space on FB is mine and I alone make the decision about who I share this personal space with.

It is really a very sad situation. I’m truly sorry that it must be this way and it pains me deeply.
