My friend went crazy; should I delete them off FB or just ignore their texts and messages?

    I have a close friend who became Christian. Years ago I bought them that book A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle (they said they wanted it) and I spent a lot of time making them a workbook to go with it. I bought a Binder in their favorite color (hot pink) and put a bunch of Oprah's worksheets in plastic sheets to put inside the binder and added little things here and there. It was a going away present since they were moving to a diff state at the time.

    Fast forward years later: Well now when I post things on my FB the next day I'll get texts from her that basically will state everything and everyone is ungodly and she does it so nicely. I can't hide my posts from her b/c I let the "world/everyone" see it.

    I don't know if I should ignore her texts, delete her off my FB, or what. It hurts because we were really close friends. I think her divorce and finance problems led to her needing to find something. She also found a new man who is a strict Christian. She knows I'm gay and I don't think she agrees 100% with it but accepts me. But it's hard she thinks lady gaga is a satanist and I don't even care for gaga. I mean I like some of her songs but I prefer Britney or Rihanna when it comes to pop. Idk I just need to end it b/c it takes a toll on my sanity and it hurts b/c I know so much pain caused her to this breaking point of being a radical and trying to save everyone.

    Why do you refer to your friend on the plural? She's one person and you know her sex.

    blend88 saidI have a close friend who became Christian. . . . It hurts because we were really close friends.

    I don't understand why a rational person would want a nutcase fundamentalist christian as a friend - (A real friend would not bombard you with unwanted christian bs.) But if you want to keep her as a friend, ask her to please stop sending all the christian nonsense your way. If she goes along with this, then you still have your friend. If she doesn't, then defriend her, or whatever one does on FB to cut someone off.

    Thank you for the messag it meant a lot. It's funny how we lose common sense when we allow emotions to get in the way. Thank you again.

    To the other poster. I wrote all of this on my iPhone after receiving more crazy things from my "friend". The thought of grammar wasn't on the top of my mind. Heck I've had someone say they are an author and publisher yet they begin every sentence with a lower case letter and write "i" instead of I. But they get their message across which is the bottom line.

    Lol they sent me more fanatical links to websites via texts. It's a shame I called and talked to my mom about it, because my Mom knew her too. I was raised Catholic and I do pray to Jesus from time to time but I'm not an extremist and it always bothered me to look at other religions i.e. Jewish, Buddahism, Hinduism as if they were condemned to he'll for it. I just could never look at another human being like that.

    AMoonHawk saidDo you seriously need someone else to make your decisions for you. Come on, buck up and be a man and make the decision yourself.





    Right on

    Yes you can hide her from your facebook.

    Next time you make a facebook status click the right hand tab that is for privacy and go to custom. There will be a box for exception... You can add just her or whoever i do it with my Mom and any female family family members so i can still make pussy fart jokes and talk about dildos and anal douching and i don't have to ever explain what a power or pushy bottom whore is.

    edited: Ok you can't be PUBLIC and add an exception.. but instead of bitching about it... just alter to Friends and add her out.. or just tell her she is a nutcase and stop sending you messages. Some people make things more complicated than it really is.

    The biggest barrier to people and success is often their inability to make a decision. Even if it's not always the right decision, you weigh the options and make a decision. I see this all the time in the business world, people basically need to be told how to think in way too many situations. And that's why they're not moving up in their careers. Someone has to tell them every step of the way what is right and wrong. I also generally think that if you're asking a question, it's because you already know the answer and are looking for confirmation of your decision from other people. It's not that someone is looking for ideas and input, they're looking for validation on what they already know.
