Facebook really needs to re-do its algorithms, re-evaluate their lives, something. I have never in all the years I've been friends with
my husband him, gotten emails about his status updates. But within the past month or so, they email me about his updates. Not even the same time either, at least a few days after. And they just suggested that I make an event for his birthday. LOL I can't figure out how to stop the updates. Maybe I'll just unfriend him. That might be easier. It's almost like that time it suggested my ex's wife to be my friend. Like really?
Facebook isn't always so terrible, as it did show some interesting articles on my newsfeed from Thought Catalog that I generally don't put much stock into. Don't get me wrong, they are good reads (most of the time) but I hardly ever find them applicable to my life. The ones I looked at yesterday, I feel like they apply to my situation and what I'm going through, just a little bit.
I clicked on this article first, and laughed at a few things, then saw this one on the bottom and felt a connection with it/the author. This part especially:
"You deserve someone who never leaves even if they found a better job or made more money or bought a fancier car. Someone who never leaves when they’re at their best, when they can get anyone they want but still choose you, when they don’t even care about exploring all these other ‘options’ to realize your worth because they know what they have and they know that you are one of a kind."
That part right there. Someone who doesn't care about the (un)known options out there. Or rather isn't as interested in them because they love you, they want you, they CHOOSE you. (That last one was a bit Pokemon-ish haha) I shared this on my page, and one of my friends pointed out that we are human and make mistakes and sometimes we take things/people for granted and walking away and coming back makes us appreciate it/you more. I get that, but then there are some people who just know your worth and appreciate you without having to walk away. That's what I'm looking for. It may be a fairytale and never happen, but at least I can hope right? I know there's give and take and sometimes we have to compromise about things. But I'm just not ready to settle yet. I want to keep the hope alive a little bit longer.
