Interesting!

I feel a lot of anger at the moment.  Yesterday I posted a post from Mind Elate on Suicide Prevention on my Facebook page which to be honest I barely check these days at it annoys me and it didn’t receive one ‘like’.  I am sure we cannot like suicide as an issue but surely we would like or try to show support for a post that encourages people to be sensitive and reach out to others on this issue.  I wanted to post a upset status at that point but just thought to myself What is the Point?  Mainstream society pisses me off no end a lot of days and is why I use this medium and not Facebook.  This isn’t an ego issue for me but it does make one feel alone and abandoned by who one thought we so called ‘friends’ who don’t seem to connect at all in any similar ways.  I am over Facebook which is why I so rarely have anything to do with it these days.  Do others feel the same?  A bigger part of me says to ‘let it go’ I can live without Facebook and be at peace. I feel happier these days not having anything much to do with it.

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.

  1. I know what you mean about facebook. The majority of people live in a very superficial mindset so find it hard to relate to sensitive people like us. WordPress blogs are a great way to connect with others of a similar mindset/disposition. Wishing you all the best. Hugs.

  2. I don’t know the post you are talking about, but suicide is a subject very frowned upon by some, and then there are some who are afraid of what to say. I have had family and friends who have taken their lives. My brother being the last one. It can be very hard to talk about, and just as hard to be silent about. I am sorry for any loss you have suffered. All loss matters… when the loss occurs, and years later. Please know I am thinking of you and praying for you. God loves you!

    1. I am so very sorry you lost your brother to suicide. How devastating. It is hard to talk but what price is silence? Things like this go deep and words can be so hard to find for sufferers and also those who want to help. Thank you for you loving comment. Deborah

      1. Thank you. I know God is taking care of him. You are right that silence can come with a cost. The hardest thing about speaking for me sometimes is that it doesn’t feel like it does any good, but I know what I’m really feeling is hurt that I still can’t change it. I still can’t bring him back. Or as I say at times, my Lazarus didn’t come back. I wish I knew the name of this book a friend from church had me read that was written by a Christian who lost a loved and focused solely on that story of Lazarus but being honest about our anger and hurt. It helped me.

      2. Yes it is one of those wounds that cannot ever really go away and permanently marks us. I can understand also a need for silence if in that silence you leave the wound alone for a time. Not all silence is bad but ideally you would share your pain and be connected to in love. It doesn’t take the pain away but it helps. Much love to you Gail. ❤

  3. Facebook has a system that chooses whose post shows up and whose doesn’t. My son has learned the system from a friend who does business using FB. It is frustrating because I don’t posts of friends that I would want to see regardless of the content.

      1. So true that is why I have been off it for some time I do like to see what my little grand nephews get up to but then some poses get eerie to me, that is when I say ‘enough’ ❤

  4. Never been on facebook or any other social media except a couple of garden forums. But WordPress seems to connect me with kindred spirits so I’m glad I’m on here and meeting people like yourself.

  5. I was thinking “there’ll be a few comments on this” and I was right! Yes, I feel the same. I also feel like people have hurt me or let me down and I want to shout about it, point it out, but again, what’s the point? Then you come across as the bitchy one or the attention-seeking one. And there’s everyone else, showing off their wonderful lives that they’ve created for others to see. It’s a tough call. I feel less anxiety when not going on there other than to specifically check things I want to check or to do with blogs. Sending a hug your way – you’re not alone in feeling angry/alone with social media.

    1. No, Caz and its good to get all this feedback. I understand about how you feel if you protest it comes back on you. I have had that happen not so much on there and sometimes I have been outspoken. But over the past year or so I feel less and less real connection with people on there and am tired of all the superficial and then posing esp with young kids where they are being urged to look or be something they are not to impress. Anyway I am giving it a wide berth. I hope things are okay with you, sending you love and a hug Deborah x
