FFS Friday - Random

Hello Friday! We meet again. Yay!
I hope you've all had a lovely week. Ours was pretty good. I don't have much to complain about, but never fear, I'll come up with something. 

I've been thinking lately about how we criticise others so much. We can be so very nasty and judgemental. But what I don't understand is this: why are we not okay with other people being different to us? Just because they are different, it doesn't mean they're awful. If they do things we wouldn't do, that isn't necessarily a bad thing, it just means they're different to us.

For example; I was on twitter reading a conversation between three people (none who I currently follow, so if you're thinking I'm talking about you, I'm not).
They were saying how they hate a certain social media personality and that they can't be friends with anyone who likes her.

I just don't get it. Firstly, why would you hate someone that you don't know? Why invest all that time and energy into reading what they have to say and then deciding to hate them? If you don't like what they have to say, unfollow. It's easy and means you're not wasting your time on negativity.

Secondly, so what if your friends like different things to you? Doesn't that make the friendship interesting? How boring would life be if we all liked the same things? 

The thought of having friends who agree with everything I say horrifies me. We'd have nothing to talk about. I love when my friends disagree with me, it leads to interesting conversations. 

We can't hope to expand our interests if we stick to the same old same old.

Stepping off my soap box now.

Next topic: Some people are truly amazing. They really are. They face such adversity and despite it they continue to thrive, they're positive, happy and just amazing. 

That's all.


  1. As you know, I am friends (on FB) with people you and other mutual friends are not. And that's fine. I am aware of your issues with her, and you are aware I'm not going to ditch her just because she was a cow to you. And that is as it should be. xx

  2. Exactly! That's just how it should be xxx

    1. And I am so happy! My Google account is working again, so my comments will show up!
