Last night I decided that I’d had enough of the negativity and the battlecries of people complaining about Trump and the dilemma of undocumented people. I posted one final note on Facebook, telling people I was going away for a while to give my mind and heart a bit of a rest. I’m a bit of an empath, and I tend to absorb other people’s emotions. Sadly, there’s been more negative posted than happyness. I quit reading the newspaper years ago because I couldn’t handle the violence and political negativity. I have quit Facebook for the same reason.
I’ll give myself a couple of weeks to clear my heart and mind and perhaps I’ll consider returning to Facebook. I’ll keep my garden railroad page, but the other page can just drift away for all I care at the moment.
I’m always saying that life is precious and it’s always shorter than you think it will be. So why waste it reading trash or other people’s rants about things they have no control over. I have better uses for my precious time…
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Know that you are loved, and that you can take control of your own life. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.
