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.

About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons, a daughter-in-law, and two grandsons. My hobbies include creating art with fabric (quilting and sewing) and paper (cardmaking), reading, writing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in our G scale garden railroad), travel and volunteering. I owned a secretarial and desktop publishing business years ago and was a professional proofreader. I closed my business in 1999 when my husband retired, but I continue to enjoy proofreading and editing for e-authors. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

    I can certainly understand why you are doing this. I agree, that the negativity and the hateful comments are at an all time high. I hardly ever read any of those entries any longer.

      Thank you. I learned years ago that I needed to protect myself from negative people and negative news because I absorbed the energy/emotion from them. I felt frustrated and that raised my blood pressure. :/ Not good…

    So sorry I helped drive you into peace. Now that trump has temporarily recanted and the kids can go to their families, all is quiet. George was kind to me this weekend, and I now have a skooter as transpportation. I feel guilty, but a bit delighted too. You are loved.
