Pricey Amy: A buddy of 35 years lately “broke up” with me through electronic mail.
It was attributable to politics, I conclude, though we’ve got by no means mentioned politics in individual, by cellphone or by electronic mail.
Nevertheless, I steadily publish my convictions on Fb. I intention to be civil and to again up my opinions with factual, credible hyperlinks.
My buddy and I’ve by no means had a dialogue on FB about politics or candidates. Nonetheless, out of the blue, she despatched me an electronic mail and mentioned, “I don’t like what you placed on Fb and I can’t be associates with you anymore. Have a pleasant life.” That was it. After 35 years.
I might perceive that motion if I had pressed my case over lunch or despatched hyperlinks in emails. I by no means did. I’ve a few family members/associates who publish on FB extolling their help for the candidate I discover objectionable, and my selection is simply to scroll by and never have interaction.
My husband says, “You’ve been handled unfairly and poorly, so contemplate it completed and transfer on.” Nonetheless, there’s a deep damage over this.
