I don’t know about you guys. Maybe you feel differently, but I find the fake birthday wishes I have gotten on Facebook depressing. Here’s why.
I remember once feeling elated that I had received so many birthday greetings via Facebook. The glow lasts a few days only. You end up realizing that those who wished you happy birthday don’t even want to have much to do with you. What’s the point?
Facebook isn’t a great place to ask for advice. You get bad advice, or you get bullied just for asking. For instance, I asked on a page about finding a job. What was the response? I was told it was my own fault I was unemployed. I was called both stupid and naive.
I end up telling myself I shouldn’t ask such questions and expect anything but cruelty. Don’t ask what is the best pizza place, what is the best way to complete a class assignment, nor how to keep your hands warm in the cold weather. The latter ended up in ganging up on me and name-calling.
Each time someone is cruel I have a hard time shaking it off. No it is not worth it. Say no to cruelty!
I’m done. I deleted my account. Just in time for my birthday. I want to have a decent birthday free of fake friends and nastiness.
