I had to unfriend someone today on facebook. She is the one who sends private messages about me being saved, shares evangelical videos on my wall, and constantly comments with non-sequiturs on my posts.
It was hard to get to this point. She was the first person I connected with in college. She has mental health issues and is a little - i'm gonna say it - dumb.
I have been disregarded and rejected by some I thought would be in my life forever. I know how it feels to realize a friend is lost. But, it's causing me stress to have her in my life. I think there was only one other person I reconnected with and then had to unfriend because the people we have grown up into are very different.
I started wondering how much I have changed. I feel like I have been so empty all my life, I haven't got much of a personality. I'm not sure what drew them into my life. I feel maybe these ultra-religious and judgmental personalities were always embodied by these two in particular. Am i so apathetic that I didn't even see it?
Anyway, today had some big steps in my life for my mental health. This seems like an innocuous act, but i feel a sense of relief on this front.
