I have fallen into the same trap as so many others. In an effort to help (I thought) I have offended people with my words on facebook. Some very big problems with that, the biggest being the inability to take it back or explain it. Correcting a mistake on FB is akin to walking on quicksand.: the more you move, the deeper you sink. In this case, the more you write, the worse it gets.
I have said, and I think rightfully so, it is not what you say but what is heard that really matters. You would think I would be wise enough to heed my own advice. But no.
I think it is time to stop adding any commentary to Facebook. It has become a habit, similar to cocaine. It is very hard to not add your opinion (s). It is hard to realize that those opinions are unwanted and many times useless. I think we all want to "matter" but fail to realize that sometimes we just don't.
It is time to shut up. Boy, it is hard to do that. I never realized how hard it is to say nothing. I will try to wait until I am asked and then, choose my words wisely.
