It started out innocently enough. A friend sent me a request to view their photos on facebook. The only catch? I had to sign up for an account of my very own. What harm could it do? Now some 96-odd friends and too many requests for things I have no interest in later, I am considering abandoning the whole thing.
I mean, it's nice to be thought of and all, but to be honest I don't look forward to emails that only inform me that one of my facebook friends has 'thrown Paris Hilton' at me, or 'sucker punched' me. It's actually a burden.
Because my neurotic personality is such that I feel compelled to reply and do something back to every request I get. Whether I know the person well or not. Even though I'll never be the 'street racing' champion, or have the most tiaras, or earn the most greenbucks by giving other people flowers to stop global warming, (which I don't even think exists) the people-pleaser in me MUST respond.
It was this very thing that caused Little Sister and I to let our dolls sleep in the bed and us to sleep under it. You can't very well let just ONE in the bed. It's showing favoritism. The others will feel bad, and keep you up all night with their crying.
Is this an illness only I suffer from?
Please tell me I'm not alone.
Know what makes it worse? I am friends with people from my past that I don't even like. It's a disease. Now, if you're one of my facebook friends, please don't go wondering if you're the one that isn't really my friend in real life. Just let me assure you that (wink-wink, nudge-nudge) I like all my 'friends' the same.
Which brings me to my next thought.
Why is there a new thing called Top Friends?!?!?
Don't these people know how much pressure they put on me when they add me and I don't want to add them back because then I have to put everybody in, and as I've already confessed, I'm friends with people from my long ago past that I don't even like and that is just going overboard to put them in a Top Friends category just because everyone else is ending up there? Do they??? If they know this, then why do they do it to me?!?!?
I may be slowly losing my mind. And the rest of the posts this week may just confirm that. But please don't send me condolences or flowers on facebook. Because that may cause me to send a rocket launcher through my laptop, and slightly anger the Prince.
Just leave a comment. Because six comments for a whole WEEK worth of posts is depressing me a little. But not enough to make this my only world.
**crosses fingers behind back** I PROMISE.
