I first learned my Dad's birthday when he sent me a request on Facebook.
true friends
social media
I deleted my account the other night and realised that actually, I really like it.

I'm afraid that if I let her know, she'll get defensive and start a huge argument.
I used to feel humiliation recalling all of it — like I’d somehow deserved the bullying — but now I just feel sadness for that poor girl I used to be.
I’m in denial that I have a gambling problem since I’m not feeding dollars or quarters into a machine in Las Vegas. Instead I’m seated at my dining-room table playing a free slot machine on Facebook.
Did you post a picture of you having the best time ever online? Yeah, that's a gloatgram.
My sister and I did not talk for months. And then we did. What happened in between taught me how to deal with grief.

I've seen the dark side of human nature. Now I'm going to protect my daughter with everything I've got.
high school
For years, I used resentment toward people who’d bullied me as fuel to power my career. Yet when my past returned on Facebook, I decided to turn the other cheek.
"Yeah I'm sure airing your family's dirty laundry on a blog read by millions of people won't pour fires on the flames at all...you idiot." Well, what are you going to do. Personal exploitation of my life is my job, isn't it?

I want to ice him out in a respectful way b/c I don't want to alienate a potential professional connection.
Facebook became the most dysfunctional area of my life, and ending things with it proved just as difficult as ending things with a boyfriend.
I am having a hard time seeing how this was my fault and not hers in the first place.

My daughter killed herself 16 months after being gangraped. This week, a company thought it was a good idea to use her picture in a dating ad.
The only person with the integrity to look out for me and tell me my ass is floating out freestyle is some girl who was a friend of a friend in HIGH SCHOOL.
You "get it," and don't want teenage girls to pose making an "extra-arched back and the sultry pout." One small request. Please Google "slut-shaming" on the Internet, OK?
