I disagree with the ruling in this article!!
Being upset to such an extreme degree by being removed from the friends-list of someone who prefers to not have contact, is a more accurate definition of social immaturity than to describe the person who did the ‘unfriending’ as such!
This whole social media thing is breeding its own version of hypersensitivity, and could well spawn a whole new outlet for even more irrational political correctness, which in most instances, causes more suffering than it alleviates.
More often than political correctness is used as a vehicle for sections of the community to feel offended and then vent their spleens accordingly; whereas, without this excessive seeking out of ways to take offence, the situation would have previously been either ignored or not even noticed!😡.

The only way to teach effectively(IMHO)…..😊…
We MUST START from where THEY ARE!… not from where WE feel they SHOULD BE!. And then… using avenues that are familiar and fascinating(taking whatever detours are necessary for immersion, reinforcement and interest), teach with enthusiasm, never humiliate, and ALWAYS engage them with a good sprinkling of lightheartedness and humour. 😀.
“I hear and I forget…
I see and I remember…
I do, and I understand!”
Works every time! 😆…. IMHO 😄
That statement should strike deeply into the minds and consciences of all empire builders, colonialists, and those intent on world domination; and hopefully engender a new respect for those gentle indigenous souls that they once referred to as ‘savages’ or ‘natives’, just because they objected to explorers etc. having the nerve to plant their flags, and take possession of something that should not ‘belong’ to anyone! Agreed?
Serenity and compassion.
If we all showed these two attributes most of the time…. heaven!!
Please feel free to pass a comment on this quote from Anthony de Mello:-
“Problems only exist in the human mind.”
I find photos of abandoned places which show nature gradually taking over again, intriguingly satisfying. They can serve to remind us of the fact that our existence is so fleeting, and.. that the earth will always heal itself, despite whatever we proud, arrogant humans think we can do to it!!
Nature Rules! OK!? 😊
“Beware procrastination! This is one that most of us know only too well. Sometimes we clothe it in words such as, ‘taking the line of least resistance’, etc… but however we try to ‘spin’ it, either to others(or, more stupidly, to ourselves), the fact remains that whatever it is that we are putting off, or trying to avoid; we are relegating it to the future(!)…. removing it from the reality of ‘now’, which renders it completely null and void, because the future and the past are but thought forms…. figments of our imagination!!😉 – A.G.Rolls
