Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child, before you understood the meaning of any word, before opinions took over your mind. The real you is loving, joyful, and free. The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun. ~Don Miguel Ruiz
“In my experience, the people you care about let you down, but only if you let them.” ~Veronica Mars

No one likes to be lied to or betrayed. However, there are those that thrive on doing just that to other people. And then there are those that are just careless. The problem isn’t really intent as much as it is actions. We’re all guilty of telling something we shouldn’t have or for accidentally letting something slip. It really sucks when we’re betrayed like that, but so goes life. We can stay mad about it or we can learn from it. Yes, it sucks to realize that you can’t trust someone with a secret anymore, but that’s no reason to throw a friendship away. It just means we need to watch what we say more carefully. Odds are, if it was that big of a secret…we probably shouldn’t have been talking about it in the first place. Afterall, two can keep a secret if one of us is dead.

The other day, a friend of mine said hello via IMs. No big deal, right? Okay, I should also probably add that he’s not a friend friend, he’s more like a friend of a friend. Seemingly nice guy that I don’t really have an issue with. However, something strange happened after he said hello that day. He offered me a hug which was nice…I accepted, but afterwards, he patted my ass. *sighs*
me: I’m not one of those girls.
him: I know 😉
me: Then why did you do it?
him: I thought I was being cute. I’m sorry.
I forgave him and moved on about my day. Unfortunately, I can’t stop thinking about it. I had a guy hit on me via Facebook recently who had a rather unusual approach. I assumed he was being creepy and asked him to not be that guy. He responded quite defensively and suggested that I was asking for creeps to approach me, because of the sexy photos I post. Now, I know that’s bullshit. I don’t care what kind of pictures I post. No one deserves to be spoken with anything less than respect. Here’s the thing though, people use Second Life as an excuse, but honestly…would these same men approach a Playboy model or porn star by smacking them on the ass or grabbing at them? I’m sure they get an array of bullshit online like we do. However, I need people out there to understand that just because the POTUS grabs women by the pussy and gets away with it, doesn’t mean everyone else will!

I was so excited when I heard about these dobermans. Many many years ago, I stayed with a family that had several dobermans and upon my first visit, I was absolutely terrified. Mostly, because one of them would jump right over the fence and greet people at their cars. She was simply excited to see visitors. She turned out the be the sweetest dog ever, but man did she put the fear of god into people at the time. My experience with them has been nothing but positive so I named my main doberman, Mittens…short for DoberMittens. *grins*

Once upon a time, Sady adopted the most wonderful young woman as her daughter in Second Life. This beautiful young lady was very quick to point out all the adult toy boxes that Sady was putting in her photos. Then one day out of the blue, Sady logged in to receive her very own vending machine full of adult toys. This was an amazing gift from her naughty daughter who said, “Now you have a real toy box!” *laughs* Well, like mother like daughter, my sweet Chickadee is a brat!! I know, shocking! God, I love that girl!

As people in a world that seems to revolve a great deal around social media, I think it’s important that we choose our words carefully. I’ve seen it so many good people virtually destroyed because of a rant on social media. We’ve all seen it. Then there are those that go back and forth, arguing with one another on a very public social forum. Even more reckless are those that jump into those arguments not really knowing the entire story. We must be careful jumping on these bandwagons, because we really don’t know who is watching. Nor do we know what their perception of the situation is. I think its important that we take a step back and ask ourselves if its really important. Is the rant worth a public audience? Does this argument really need to take place and if so, is it truly necessary that it occurs in public? Do we know the facts of both sides? Have we asked any questions or are we surfing straight into a tsunami? They lied to us when we were kids…they told us that words can never hurt us. As adults, we all know better. So, please, take care when participating in this social media dramas.
