If somebody wants to impersonate me, then they need to get over here and do the work that goes along with being me. They can start with paying the bills, cleaning the house, and going to work for me :) I bet that would cure them of envy real quick.
Seriously, you know how I am. I'm proud of being different, and the fact that my authenticity has been made a liability means it's time to disconnect the drama. So no more. If people were relying on getting information about me and Rick through Facebook, they'll have to resort to the old fashioned method: they'll have to talk to us. As for the others, they know where else to find me online if they wish. I get more responses and activity out of Twitter and Goodreads than I ever got out of Facebook anyway.
Not everybody on Facebook was bad, and I am sorry that the good have to suffer as well - but truthfully, I've talked personally to many of those people, so this should come as no surprise to them. They know the issues I've had, and said they understood my reasons for backing away. That I decided to leave altogether probably doesn't surprise them.
I'm just amazed at how relieved I feel. It's like a tremendous weight has been lifted. I feel good about it, and I'm happy that it frees me up to spend more time with other people and things that mean more to me. That time suck is closed. Thanks be to God!
In other news, I'm finally starting to feel much better. I think getting some rest and taking care of some things that have been hanging over me forever has done me a lot of good. I needed it, and thank God for the opportunity to rest and restore myself as I should have two months ago, when I should have. Maybe I could have prevented this relapse. But as with Facebook, better late than never, and at least I finally "got it."
That's all today. I just wanted to give you a heads up on what's going on. Click on "About Me" if you want to know where else to find me online.
