Peach State says: Soap Box Thoughts

20120807-080251.jpg
With flustered heart and shaky hands I debate the intent of certain Facebook updates. I cannot find the conservative root in the thought on the page as I read the status again. Is this person, considered a close relationship, attacking people like me with these photos and words or does this person see this post in a different light? I don’t know! “It made me want to scream and press the de-friend button.”

I have found myself perusing my page daily and not liking some of the ideals and lifestyle updates.

“Am I getting to be of the mindset that today’s crazy youth have no clue what truth is in the world?”

I know that differences are needed…Lord knows I am different! (insert laughter here!) But, my concern is the subject matter on my page should reflect my general beliefs and certain things just don’t belong there. I try to be tolerant of the grey areas and overlook the post as I scroll to the next update. I remind myself that those close to me only see my posts and comments on their status’ and find relief. I consider posting the opposite concepts and ideologies to throw a wrench in their page….but, I am not that type of person. You know, as well as I do, that our friends typically share the same general lifestyle beliefs.

Politics comes to mind…I am conservative as are those close to me! I will post about voting…but will not flood the page with who I am voting for. I will urge my Facebook Friends to remember to vote. They have the right to decide for themselves…BUT…please don’t shove your anti-conservative mindset down my throat with your status updates. “Did I say that out loud?”
Maybe I should just relax and drink the rest of my coffee and enjoy my wonderful breakfast of peanut butter crackers.

“Please let me state, for the record, that I am not as square as it may sound! I love my country and I have strong core beliefs. I enjoy laughing and have a unique and sometimes weird sense of humor…alright…sometimes may need to be constantly. Thus, I have friends who are the same way…but our core values and beliefs are the same. I do not aggressively seek out controversy and conflict.

One moment while I wipe the itty-bitty beads of perspiration from my poor brow….phew! I feel so much better! So what should I do? Should I let it go or pick up the proverbial glove of challenge? I could always go with the Sports Rule: 3 Strikes you’re out!. What do you think? Please let me know and have a great day!
