So many motives, so little time. Ok, let's take friending on Facebook.
I've commented on friendship before. It often denotes commonality, at least in some areas. Facebook friendships seem different.
I've been fortunate to meet some people who have become friends, even online. Some folks I've friended are networking for showbiz. Some just have cool things to share.
I don't get notching up numbers for ego gratification or for their own sake. It's not a popularity contest to me. It's a virtual hodgepodge.
I certainly don't agree with some of the people I've met. But most I've friended give and take. I do not pander or lie. If you read my posts, agree, disagree, leave or stay.
I suspect a couple of lefties monitor me. Let 'em watch. I doubt they will reform their ways. I expect to be watched by various people. It certainly happens here lol.
Just to suck up and coattail is not my style. I am a fan of the showbiz folks I like or friend. A few come and go. I am honest, I do not snipe. Heat and kitchen come to mind.
So it is with the 'me me me' mindset. The old joke comes to mind of a celebrity at a party going on and on about him/herself. 'Enough about me. What about you? What do you think of me.' lol
Only you know what's going on in your own head. The gov etc may want to find out and they surely have an inkling about where I stand. Have fun trying to micromanage me lol.
Comes to mind one of my mottos. I thank God for all things for it is from all things I learn.
Maybe FB friendships aren't much different after all. We have reasons for what we do.
May we be guided by truth, sincerity and a desire to know.
