The broken hearts, the family feud — the friend we no longer speak too — the falling outs of life. The people who went ghost on you.
When its really done, when you want to seal the deal that you are fed up entirely over with this soul, you open up your laptop, unlock your phone and do what any normal person would in this generation…hit BLOCK.
You block your ex boyfriend, that annoying coworker, your ex blocks, your ex’s new jealous girlfriend blocks you, your cousin who hates you blocks you, it goes on and on. There are 100 different reasons of why it happens and who does it, but:
It is the ultimate way that anyone can send you a clear message that they want you gone, never to be heard from again.
Instagram: (…) Block User [ Are you Sure?] (Cancel) (Yes I’m Sure)
Twitter- @NoLongerExistsInMyLife will no longer be able to follow or message you. BLOCK.
Facebook — You can block someone to unfriend them and prevent them from starting conversations with you or seeing things you post on your timeline. Block User:__________ BLOCK.
Phew! All Blocked. Now that’s over; I’m Queen B; we are on the way to good vibes all day every day. Screw em’. (insert hair flip here) Namaste.
My opinion: what an ignorant and immature way to flip me off. My mom: I don’t care. My 13-year-old daughter… Really bothers me that she is growing up to be taught to block problems instead of handling them.
Tim Latier, Linda Latier, and Pam Tilley choose to block their problems instead of handling them head on. I find that very immature and irresponsible. Life is hard… Handle your problems accordingly. Not immaturely, or ignorantly.
I sent a text message to my mom on a friends phone, and I felt like shit. I was basically told that I made a poor choice, despite the fact that his niece caused a lot of drama by playing on his phone months ago. Ignorance is causing a lot of problems in the world today. It’s making my heart hurt. I read the messages that my mom sent to the undisclosed third-party, you know what? Why didn’t she ask me? Oh, because she has me immaturely blocked.￼￼￼￼￼
My answer: Mom, you do nothing but criticize me and insult me. I’ve always had to walk on eggshells around you, and have failed. I will never live up to your standards. I’m done trying. As far as my daughters, I have fought tooth and nail to see them, or even talk to them. I have passed psychological evaluations, and I’ve never been proven a threat to my daughters. You have no idea how exhausted I am. I’m not “throwing them away”. Whether I did, or didn’t, how would they know? I’m dead to them, because *their dad doesn’t want me to be their mom.
*please don’t defend him, he started this war and has made no effort to end it
