An Exorcism

On Friday night I performed an exorcism of sorts.

I've never really liked my FB network. And stepping away from FB is not exactly a solution. So I did the only thing I could think of: "unfriending" a whole bunch of people. "Friend" - what a hollow word it has become. Or has it always been like this? In my case, I mean.

I did take a moment before "unfriending" you, though we haven't been friends for a really long time anyhow. Have we ever been friends? You show such a soft side on your page. One that I've never known. Or that I don't remember? Why were you so intent on showing me only the opposite: guarded, cool? I've been accused of not letting people in. Have I learned that from you? Or maybe I've learned that alongside you. From our emotionally illiterate parents. But now it's too late to ask these questions. The damage has been done. And besides: I don't know you anymore.
