A Bitter Pill To Swallow
Everyone tells me I should have a Facebook account. I'd rather not be found by people I know years ago. Recently, I discovered exactly why I did not want to be on Facebook. Not having an account of my own, someone got me on through theirs. I thought I would have some fun looking up people from high school. No harm, right? Wrong! While playing around I stumbled upon someone I had a falling out with and she had become quite successful. She opened a gym and weight-loss center. She has written a book and has a radio show. Sure, I am glad she is healthy after losing over 100 pounds. But honestly, I am jealous! I mean how cool, writing a book and radio show. After finding out that most of my high school friends had good jobs and about all of them had long marriages, I really felt down. I know that this was not the path God had chosen for me. I am not really sure what my purpose in life is. Maybe I won't find out for years from now or maybe not at all. But I am sure I have one, maybe not to be successful. Maybe not to be well-known. Still, it is a bitter pill to swallow.
