What made this so easy to happen? Well, it is this 21st century age of instant communication. How impersonal with each other this technology has made us. How easy to fly off the handle and trash a friendship of so many years in just a moment's post. I thought the phone had made it easy to hide behind when you wanted to verbally fight. Then the email gave us cover to snipe at one another. But, I was wrong now you don't even have to post you can just un-friend them and not even get into an argument.
It is too easy for us to fold up our tent, steal off in the darkness and walk away. We have made it too easy to throw away people and our friendships with them. I don't believe in divorce but I am enough of a realist to know that it happens but I am grieved when it does. And this feels to me like a divorce from a loved one. Will I be fine - oh sure, but I still like to think that I am important to my friends (as they are to me) and they enjoy my friendship. But this time I guess I realize that it has become easy to be "un-friended" and be with out a friend. C.
