Allies but never friends?

On this solemn Friday, I woke up to discover that I've earned my first Facebook stripes of honor of the year. I have been unfriended for standing and speaking up for what I believe in. In a way I am proud to know that the persons thinks I am a big enough threat to the universe that revolves around them. 

I am also glad I never told them not to think too highly of themselves, I don't make a post specially for one person, I only write when I think the issue is too rampant, I don't either have the time or energy just to rant about anyone in specific.

There are many more who don't believe in putting another person in their place for differences in opinions, that's why we can coexist peacefully, for this I am thankful. Friendships, both in real life and on social media are too precious to be confined within the limitations of sharing the same ideals and opinions, it's the varieties that makes us all the more interesting. 

While I am a tiny bit disappointed, I realized something else, perhaps we were just foot soldiers of the same allies who met and fought alongside each other in the same war, but we never really became friends. And because of that, a battle that sees us on the opposite end ends what could have been a good friendship.

Have a great weekend peeps.
