I believe I have been CANCELLED by my friend because I refuse to talk politics with her. She doesn\’t talk about Biden at all – she rants about Trump. \”what do you think of this? What do you think of that?\” I don\’t follow his every move like she does – She\’s obsessed! When he was sick with covid19, she said she and her sister were on a death-watch, hoping he would die. I replied back,
\”That\’s not cool.\”
That\’s why I think she is no longer answering my texts and why she never made a comment back about the 2 photos I sent her of my niece and my grand-niece. On Twitter, I saw that her sister who she lives with her tweeted out that they are praying Rush Limbaugh dies a painful death. Wow. While I am sad that perhaps she has canceled me for good, after years apart, maybe I am better off. She ALWAYS wants to talk about Trump. I have told her I did not want to discuss it with her. We used to be best friends years ago and we drifted apart. I wanted to protect that part of our friendship – I will just let her be – and if she never contacts me again, then so be it.
Then yesterday one of my bay area friends on Facebook commented on how she thought it was funny that my county is now locked down. I told her many elderly have died and she replied back, \”oh well.\”
THIS from the compassionate and tolerant left.
So I replied back to her, by unfriending her and blocking her. I thought about it first. Has this person ever shown any signs of wanting to be an in-person friend? No. As I thought about it, she has said some catty things and I have let them slide. So looks like I did some \”canceling\” of my own. Oh well.
I don\’t like to be this way. I do have some liberal friends (remember I grew up in San Francisco and the bay area) who have been nice just classy all around. I respect them. We find other things to talk about. It can be done. I\’m thinking, these others, must have never liked me, to begin with, and are using this as an excuse. I really think some of my friends who have become Obsessed with Trump Hate need to get a grip. Do they really like what they have become? Some have even, alienated their family members. Wow. I wonder how their blood pressure is? I hate to say it but my friend has problems with her high blood pressure. Me? I\’m 110/75. My health is most important.
I figure I am 66 years old. I don\’t have time to walk on eggshells around those with differing opinions and who want to push my buttons. I don\’t push theirs. When they start calling on people to die etc, then they\’ve lost me. I don\’t speak that language and I don\’t think it\’s funny.
