What does she have?

February 18, 2010

I hate Facebook and the stalker it has created out of me. While once upon a time exes and old friends disappeared from your life like a distant dream, they’re now a constant reminder. A constant threat to my sanity.

Ding! Facebook newsfeeds blast tidbits of my “friends” lives onto my computer screen when I swear, it was only my intention to check my event invites. Posts proclaiming how happy and in love everyone is. Hearts where new relationships have finally been made “official” through facebook. Pictures of his new girlfriend. She’s much prettier than the last and even though I’m happy now without him, I liked it much better when his girlfriend looked like a troll.

I can’t help myself from stalking my way through her photos. What does she have that I don’t? I wonder.

And then I realize it’s that she wants to be with him and I didn’t.

    Ahhhh I know exactly what you are talking about with the "i liked it much better when his girlfriend looked like a troll" thing! Facebook makes me a stalker too. Especially recently.

    I had this exact problem with Facebook for the longest time. I would constantly compare myself to people and the lives they lived. But people can make imperfect lives seem perfect – however they want to. Now I'm pickier about my friends list, often remove things from my news feed, and try to tell myself not to judge my insides by someone else's outsides. I hope you feel better.
