People who I would unfriend/had unfriended on Facebook

Yes, I do purge my friend list occasionally, not with bad intention though. Types 1 to 4 on the list do peeve me at times, but they are still very bearable compared to the following:-

1) Persistent insurance/ MLM agents

Someone: Hey, sis! When want to yum cha with me? Give me a chance to help you to review your insurance policy 🙂

*we did not keep in touch for the past 12 years, only reestablished connection via FB recently and I suddenly became his “sis”…. And no, he does not share same religion view…*

Me: I’m very happy with my current agent. It’s ok!

Someone: Please, just help me! I still have not hit this month’s minimum sales.

Me: Errr…. Can you give another reason why I should really help?

Someone: because we are good friends!

*since when??!*

Another someone, also a pushy agent and we are only acquaintance and do not talk in real life at all. I had already nicely rejected her invitation to sign up insurance policy from her for 2 times, out of courtesy. On the 3rd time she pestered on FB, I pretended I was away and did not read her messages. On the 4th time she bugged, I hit the “unfriend” button. But she still sent reminder after that! I wish her the very best in her future undertakings, she’ll be successful, because she practices the following:-

So long as there is breath in me, that long will I persist. For now I know one of the greatest principles of success; if I persist long enough I will win. – Og Mandino


This case no. 3 bests all cases: a university friend died in a workplace accident. Friends offered condolences on FB. One persistent agent wrote something like: this is the outcome of not having sufficient insurance coverage: your loved ones suffer when mishaps befall you.  Contact me to review your insurance policy.

Unfriend! There’s no other way!

2) Virtual-world-is-my-real-world-person

Acquaintance added me in FB, out of courtesy I approved. Being an affable person, I greeted her one day when I bumped into her and… she ignored!

What’s the point of having me in your friend list when you are not going to befriend me in real life?

Inside the glass bottle…

“I want to walk tall, believe in myself, have the courage to ask for what I want and need, and live a life that mattered. I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and know that I am loved and that I belonged. I am desperate to feel worthy and I am hungry for the opportunity to live my fullest potential.” - modified from "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" - Debbie Ford

Under the apple tree…

"If you are not spending all of your waking life in discontent, worry, anxiety, depression, despair, or consumed by other negative states; if you are able to enjoy simple things like listening to the sound of the rain or the wind; if you can see the beauty of clouds moving across the sky or be alone at times without feeling lonely or needing the mental stimulus of entertainment; if you find yourself treating a complete stranger with heartfelt kindness without wanting anything from him or her... it means that a space has opened up, no matter how briefly, in the otherwise incessant stream of thinking that is the human mind." - A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle

Inspiring quotes!

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? (God in "Evan Almighthy")
“To love another person is to see the face of God.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Aggie: "But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?" Norman Babcock: "Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere." - Paranorman
“You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” by Walter Hagen
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, body totally worn out and screaming "WOOOHOOOO what a ride!" - by anonymous
When you travel, it’s not like you take a part of each place away with you; rather, it’s as if you leave a part of yourself there, like a part of you forever belongs to that place – the time, the people, and the things you saw; and over time, it gets burned deeper into your soul - by anonymous
