A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity.
Robert A. Heinlein
After having a long in depth conversation with one of my closest friends, I realized that it is in my best interest to live life to the fullest and not worry about the foolishness that comes from the lips of others. Besides, there's no way that you can please everybody.I love my life and I try my hardest to accomplish all of my dreams and live life like there's no tomorrow. I applaud all others who do as such. I'm a strong believer that if you are truly content and fulfilled with your life, you can only wish that upon others. People who are optimistic are noted for their ability to see the good in everything, viewing the world as place full of adventure and opportunity. Food for thought!

Facebook "defriending" led to double murder, police say
NASHVILLE, Tenn (Reuters) - A Tennessee couple who "defriended" a woman on Facebook were murdered in their home by the jilted woman's father and another man, police said on Thursday.
"It's the worst thing I've ever seen," Johnson County Sheriff Mike Reece said, adding he had never seen anything like it in his 27 years in law enforcement in the area. "We've had murders, but nothing like this. This is just senseless."
He said Billy Clay Payne, Jr. and Billie Jean Hayworth were killed last month after they deleted Jenelle Potter, the daughter of one of the suspects, from their "friends" list. Both were shot in the head and the man had his throat cut.
The couple's 8-month-old baby was in the mother's arms, unharmed, when the bodies were found.
Marvin Enoch "Buddy" Potter Jr., 60, and Jamie Lynn Curd, 38, were each charged on Wednesday in Mountain City in northeastern Tennessee with two counts of first-degree murder. The men were arrested on Tuesday.
The case was not the first involving violence linked to Facebook. Last year in Iowa, a woman was arrested on accusations of setting fire to a friend's garage after she was defriended on the social network site, local media reported.
In Texas, a man was accused of hitting his wife after she failed to "like" a Facebook post he wrote about the anniversary of his mother's death, according to media reports.
In the Tennessee case, Reece said a couple of harassment cases had been filed against Jenelle Potter in court over "someone blocking her or taking her off."
"Once you've crossed her, you've crossed her father too," Reece said, adding that Jenelle Potter, in her late 20s or early 30s, stays home with her parents and was constantly on Facebook.
Her father, "Buddy" Potter, will return to court next week for a bond hearing after he hires an attorney. Curd, also a second cousin of one of the victims, was appointed an attorney and bond was set at $750,000 for each murder count. His preliminary hearing will be in March.
No charges have been filed against Jenelle Potter, the sheriff said. She could not reached for comment.
Curd's attorney, R.O. Smith, an assistant public defender, said it was "safe to say there's more to it than the Facebook problem, it appears."
"I wish I could provide more of what went on, but there's needless to say a lot of rumors swirling around and nothing substantiated on the rumors," Smith said.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A LIFE, GET ONE!
I think that people devote too much time and effort into other people's business on facebook. Some people take facebook too seriously. Recently, I decided to deactivate my facebook account for my very own personal reasons. In specific, I felt like I was devoting too much of my time just being logged on.....not trying to bash anyone else for doing so, but I felt like there was other things that I could be doing other than just being on facebook. I wanted to read a couple of books and see if I could apply to a couple of graduate schools instead of just being on facebook. I'm also trying to cut down on the time that I spend on youtube as well, but that's another story. Anyways, I deactivated my account on Thursday 2/2/12 and I received the following email on my YOUTUBE account on 2/3/12.
" This is ...... I think it's stupid that you added me as a friend on facebook and then you blocked me or deleted me. You first contacted me when you were getting married. I don't if you thought i'd be jealous or what. But I really don't care. I just had to say something about that. Why contact me in the first place? I don't see your point. Don't contact me again out the blue for future references."
First, this chick should really learn how to proofread her emails if she's going to be nasty. Second, she had the audacity to send such an irate email for absolutely nothing. She's lucky that my facebook is still deactivated or else it would've been hell to pay. It's disgusting how people think as if your life revolves around them. Facebook is not a priority in my life and it's really not that serious. I'm not the one to allow someone to speak to me or email me in such a nasty demeanor. I do not turn my back or turn my cheek whenever someone comes for me..........especially for no reason at all. My response:
I really do think that people take facebook out of context. I do plan to reactivate my facebook account, but in due time. I'm not in a rush and I don't miss facebook at all. BTW, this female decided to respond back to my message, but she made herself look more stupid. There wasn't much that she could say because she was in the wrong. I do feel like my message pinched a nerve and that it may have helped her to realize that she shouldn't go around stalking my facebook page.
