I use Face Book mostly as a tool to promote my work, but also to stay in contract with my friends and family. I try to not respond to political post, although I have from time to time shared my opinions about this last election; even though I said I wouldn’t. A dear friend of mine has been posting a flood of one sided political opinions that he knows is contrary to my views. He is not directing them just to me, but I know that if I were to post my opinions in the same way he would not forgive me and stop speaking to me all together. So I usually ignore his political post. Yet this morning he put another one up that I found so offensive I felt a need to respond. Unfortunately, with the way my feed has been jumping around I posted on the wrong thread. It was a non-political conversation between some friends. One of them asked me in a kind way to not try and start a political argument with them. I quickly apologized and fortunately I was able to remove my post. I realized that I had given into the trap of the mudslingers and I need to temper my anger. So, I will work harder at holding my tongue and reserve my opinion for the voting booth. Thank you.
