Easy A hug MaryAnn

Give rejection the awkward hug it deserves

Think about the time we spend engaged in debate: pleading, proving or otherwise bargaining for ourselves and our perspectives. At work. At home. In the classroom. In our own minds. On social media, especially. Sometimes we offer a point of view rooted in our most cherished beliefs, our deepest convictions. More often, though, we might find ourselves frothily insisting that, yes, we are sure we refilled the goddamn printer paper.


Facebook is the id of our culture...nothing but fear and impulse and immediate gratification. The id is unresponsive to the demands of reality. Just like Facebook.

Dear Facebook Fremeny,

I love how you come out of the woodwork just to contradict or crap on something I have posted or commented on. No, really. People waiting for an occasion to be offended are my *favorite*.

Because this: “If you’re not in the arena also getting your ass kicked, I’m not interested in your feedback.”
