I un-followed someone on my Twitter account yesterday. I write about this because she had helped me out earlier and so I was glad to follow her and see if I could return the favor. I don’t know if this will ever happen now. I talk about this not to be dramatic, but to express a little disappointment.
Not everyone acts like I want them to act. (I’m stating the obvious, I know.) Some of this lady’s comments just didn’t jive with how I am and what I value. She has a lot of other followers, which probably means that she is liked by others. Great for her.
I think the take away from this is that I learned that I don’t have to “listen” to everyone. I can pick and choose what noise I want to hear. I think a lot of people think that you need to follow everyone on Twitter that follows you, etc. I don’t think that is true.
Instead of trying to put effort into reciprocating the help I received, I’m going to pay to forward to someone else.
I hope “she” understands.
