Who are our real friends, anyway? Do we consider our 1,000+ Facebook connections to be real friends, or do we just like many of those people out of obligation? I love how, when you finally see/meet these people in real life, they can actually look right through you. I’ve had that happen. I’ve also unfriended at least one of them/you.
I know you’re now all searching to see if we’re still connected on Facebook. Go ahead…I’ll wait.
A real-life friend of mine from High School posted something recently…an article that he’d read that I agree is share-worthy. From Business Insider, the article “15 Things You’re Doing That Make People Dislike You Immediately” had a long, cumbersome title that drew me in anyway.
No…it was not because I was looking for ways to enhance my misanthropic ways. I think I’ve pretty much got that covered at this point. I wanted it to serve as a wake-up call for the rest of you…for whom there is still hope. While I don’t agree with several of the items mentioned in the article (I don’t think we have to worry about me acting too nice), I hope you all read this and don’t recognize yourself in anything mentioned.
Do you? Let’s discuss. And do you agree that they’re potentially detrimental?
