Writer's Block: Unfriended, Unspecified!

Jan. 27th, 2010 | 02:18 pm

Has anyone ever unfriended you without explanation? Did you ask why? Have you ever deleted someone from your friend list without saying why?



Yes, yes, and hell yes.

I'll answer the last question first as my previous post indicated, in times of despair, I defriended people and was just a terror to them because they had the nerve to convince me that life was not meaningless.  Usually those people (for the sake of given them a name, I'm calling them, "Daisy Randolphs") would say that one day, I'd snap out of it and realize I do have something to offer the world, but that they would continue to support me anyway, even as I pushed them away.

The problem is some of those Daisy Randolphs actually defriended me when I stopped being (as) emo and thinking of myself as the worst person ever.  Usually I ask for explanation, but either I get none, or they're mad about the same things they told me to get over and act judgmental in the same way I used to do.   It's strange how the same Daisy Randolphs who begged me to get some self-esteem and stop being trapped in the same circle now shun me for it and now try to convince me that I am the worst person ever, especially over the same junk I used to wallow in.

Why can't everyone be positive and loving at the same time?

Speaking as one of the ones you pushed away way back when, I did and still do believe that you are worth caring about. Perhaps I kept my distance a little bit longer than I should have, but I did eventually come back and attempt to make peace with you, which succeeded. If I didn't care I never would have bothered.

The only reason I have Twitter, or even Live Journal, is because you are on them.

I may not be particularly positive about myself these days, but I respect and support you in anything you set yourself out to do. I'm glad that you've finally attained a sense of inner peace.

I didn't mean you. You know when I blow up at you, I say "Kieben, you jackass" and write a three page harangue detailing every single reason why you're a jackass.

I didn't mean Miluda either. Let's just say anyone I'm talking about isn't reading this journal, and definitely would never reply, why I'm not mentioning the Daisy Randolphs by name -- they're just that to me at this point. Unlike the perps I unmasked at the end of last month's Scooby Don't episode, these people aren't going to let it be known that my words matter as much as theirs.

Besides it's not inner peace. I'm as feisty as ever. I'm just going to combat criticism with self-affirmation instead of trying to absorb it.

I am a jackass. I'm ruled by my emotions, and do things that make no logical sense. I am intelligent, but I'm not smart. In fact I'm quite naïve.

Its good to hear you're still the same old Nang, if for no other reason than my own foolish sentimentality. I thought you were becoming complacent, but I guess this means more angry, opinionated rants are on the way!
