I haven’t really discussed this on WordPress but I have on Facebook, but as I sit here this morning on my porch, in the quiet of the morning I couldn’t help but think about some stuff (while checking my facebook feed) and thought.. what the hell.. I”ll post about this today. If you know me at all, I’m a very much live and let live kinda of person. I try not to judge anyone, but I am only human and I do, but at least I try to keep those judgement’s to myself. I mean of course, if your raping children, beating old people to death or so on.. oh yeah.. I’m gonna judge you and I’m going to let it be known how despicable you are and that you belong in prison… but if your gay and want to be married to your partner.. go for it. Your unmarried and get pregnant, okay.. it’s not the end of the world, after all this isn’t 1950 anymore. If you like to eat pickles covered in RediWhip… (my son just did this).. ummm okay then.. it’s gross but hey.. you go for it!
Lately however (I’d say over the last year) I find that I am more and more under the magnifying glass and being judged for what I post on my page.. did you get that.. MY page….which is fine. If you want to judge me, condemn me to hell, or just decide you need to pray for my soul.. then go ahead. That’s not the part that upsets me at all. In fact I want everyone to pray for my soul because frankly I don’t want to get to Heaven and God say “Hey, um Shannon.. how come you had no one love you enough in life to pray for you?”. Yeah, that’s not something I want to have to explain to my father so yeah, pray.. and pray hard! What my issue is is the big deal made over it. I have “hidden” dozen’s of people that I don’t necessarily agree with their beliefs or maybe they post things that I just find offensive, but I don’t contact them to try to make them feel horrible about themselves. I don’t lecture them on what I believe they are doing wrong.. nope.. I just let them live their lives, and sometimes I say silent prayers for them. That’s it. So I have to ask why do I not get the same consideration? I dunno, maybe I’m a pillar in the Facebook community and I’m held to higher standards… I doubt that but maybe.. who knows.
Now I know your probably wondering what it is that I’m doing so wrong on my page.. well let me give you a couple of examples. First thing is our current Commander in Chief. Yup, I don’t like the job he’s doing. I’m a republican and I just don’t think he’s done anything that’s helped this country. I try very hard to not discuss politics at all because it usually just ends up in a huge online fight that has everyone TYPING IN ALL CAPS… but not once have I been told “hey.. your a republican and that is your opinion” (I take that back.. only 1 person seems to do that and her name is Monica).. but the rest is always a race thing.. I guess your not allowed to dislike the man or your a racist.. which I find extremely funny and hurtful at the same time. You see my best friend in the world.. whom I love dearly and consider her my sister, hell closer to me then one of my blood sisters is ….. black.. GASP (love you Nikki.. and surprise, your black honey).. I know right! I’ve dated white guys, black guys, French guys, an Italian, Rednecks.. whatever.. if they treated me nice and asked me out, sure, why not? I’ve even dated a girl once… (well it was really just a weekend thing but still)…I don’t’ see colors on people.. I mean yeah if I look at someone and see they are a dark skin then obviously I realize they are not white (unless they are like tanning mom and over did in the tanning bed)! But I don’t think right off the bat, omg that guy/girl is white I bet he/she is awesome and omg that guy/girl is black I bet they are horrible… nope, sorry that’s not me and not who I am.. so if your going to throw out a race card on me.. your wasting one of your cards. Might wanna save that for a fight later on.
Another example is the “Porn” images I post. Um, I don’t remember posting any porn but I have posted pictures of extremely sexy men and women. I find the human body beautiful in all shapes and sizes. I’m an artist and I have an artist heart. I’m also a very sexual woman and yeah.. sometimes you just see a picture of someone and you think “Hot dayum!!! lookit that sexy beast“.. and you share it. I mean all I want to do is share the love… teehee. I will also post pictures of people who are tattoo’d because I find them sexy.. and artistic. I can’t help that they may have tattoo’s in their nether regions, but not once have I posted a picture of a woman’s vagina, a man’s penis or the two of them locked in throws of passion where you can see the actually penetration (hence porn)! On occasion I will post something sexy on my husbands page that lets him know that I love him and desire him. I think it’s kinda great that after 4 years of marriage and 6 years together and being in a constant state of hell and rough roads thank’s to others who want to see us fail that we still find each other as sexy as we do, that we still want and desire each other, that we love each other and that we aren’t posting these things on other people pages! Okay, yeah I get it.. you have kids and you don’t want them seeing that kind of stuff.. that’s fine, hide my status updates.. but please, don’t try to act like you’ve never seen anything like that before and your virgin eye’s/ears can’t handle it.. I mean after all.. YOU HAVE KIDS.. so you’ve had sex.. at least however many times you’ve had kids.. right? I don’t think you have given birth to the new Messiah.
Well now that I’m more then sure I’ve pissed off several people and will probably even be delete for this blog I guess I will wrap it up for you all. If I do offend someone, please trust me when I tell you it’s NEVER my intention to do so. I try to let everyone live their lives the way I’m wanting to be allowed to live mine. If you love me enough to be concerned about something I may post or write, feel free to talk to me about it.. not at me, but to me. If I’m a little to risque’ for you and your child(ren) then please.. please hide my status updates. I don’t want anyone to ever fear logging on and seeing something they don’t want too. My children personally do not see my page, my daughter doesn’t have Facebook and won’t for another 3 yrs at the least and my son, well he’s 16 now and doesn’t really get on Facebook at all anymore.. after all it’s not Xbox is it?
Thanks and I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. I ask for continued prayers for nephew Christopher, he has shown no signs of improvement. Love always
