I do not like country and western music, but since a former friend does, I'm using She Thinks I Still Care as the hook for this article!
I am doubled over with laughter while reading her latest vituperative comment about one of my BLOG articles. I could delete her comments, but I shan't; I could prevent her comments being posted but that would take away my being able to laugh at her pitiable palaver.
I "defriended" her on Facebook and discontinued the direct sending of my BLOG to her inbox. To read my articles, she must put forth an effort to go online to find them. Unlike her, I won't engage in any personal attacks. I have no interest in her comings and goings and her self-aggrandizing, whiny "please-feel-sorry-for-me" Facebook postings.
I'm embarrassed to quote Dr. Phil, but this quote is very a propos: "The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior." I have seen her react this same way numerous times. She is a creature of habit: she cannot "let go"! I can let go, and have.
I have no respect for her but I am the kind of person who would never betray a confidence and I cling to that misplaced loyalty because I gave my word long ago that I would never divulge secrets and I am a woman of my word.
She obviously needs professional therapy--rather than Facebook--to deal with her problems.
