The word became pretty popular in Facebook since the option became available to technically “unfriend” or remove someone from your friends list in the said social networking site. The act of cutting ties and burning bridges with someone who used to be dear to us (whether in a platonic or a romantic way), is nothing new. It happens all the time, as people say.
In my younger, immature days, I would opt to unfriend somebody, even if the reason is somewhat petty. Fortunately, God made a way to bring these people back into my life. We’ve all grown up and reconnected and decided to renew our ties. Now that I am older and my years have somehow made me wise, I have decided to unfriend someone in order to follow an advice from a song I like way back in college – Sunscreen. Well, it really is not a song if you listen to it, it’s just a narration of a man’s simple pieces of advice with a background music playing along as he gives out his insight on various things. Anyway, one of the things he mentioned is to – “stop putting up with people who are reckless with your heart”.
No, I am not removing this person from my friends list in Facebook. But if you happen to see this post and feel a hard tug in your heart, well perhaps you’re right into thinking that I am talking about you. You have wronged me so many times, and yet I remained a loyal friend and you never heard anything from me for all those ill-tempered talks and moods you subjected me to in the past. I remember the time when my son was not even three months old, a time when sleep was such a luxury for me and my husband, and you were on the other end of the line crying your heart out over this person you are seeing. There was a time when you didn’t even care to validate what you know and you readily fired ill-tempered words at me, just because you were my boss. Yes, we had good times in the past, and I owe you for a lot of things, but that doesn’t give you the right to treat people as if they were inferior. Most of all you don’t ask a friend to look after your pseudo-boyfriend/f*ck buddy and get mad at your friend for relaying what she found out.
You just turned a year older and I certainly hope you have matured. It’s high time you realize why you are attracting the wrong men and why the real nice guys who decided to look past your b*tchy self dumped you for another.
Well, now that I’m done writing my entry, perhaps it is best to unfriend you after all.
