From a very young age, most people want to be accepted by their friends, family, classmates and others in society.
However, as we grow older and gain experience, we lose friends over differences in belief systems and even personality clashes. This is not a bad thing, this is growing up and learning where our own boundaries are located. This is a healthy lesson to learn. Although it is very difficult to watch your child go through it, if you search yourself and be honest, you realize even at 44 years of age that you are still learning this lesson every day as well.
Keep true to your beliefs, compromise for no one and be sure you are fighting for the right things you want to keep in your life.
Being friends on facebook does not mean you are best buddies or even family. I know lots of people who live fulfilling lives and they are not on facebook. At times, I really envy them that stance. But again, that is their choice to make.
I often clean out my friends list because of political issues and just things they post that I plain do not wish to see. It is not personal and most of them never even notice or say a word when it happens.
A true friend does not need facebook to keep up with you, they can call, text or see you at work and you can have a thriving growing relationship that feeds you both what you need.
Standing alone can be a freedom stance and I pray each of you find the strength to stand up for what you believe in and do not let anyone on this earth change your beliefs. The only relationship that truly will save you is your relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
You are worth fighting for and I pray you look in the mirror and believe in yourself every day.
