    Yes. The more the person matters to me, the more I will say something. I recently had a situation where my mum shared something on FB that was so unlike her and I just had to ring her and talk to her about it and tell her that it hurt to see her express those sentiments.

    My beliefs doesn't change no matter who I am with.

    Weather I speak up about depends on lots of things...

    *what the subject is and weather my opinion will matter. No point throw pearls to pigs.

    * how important the relationship is.

    *how important the topic is

    *whether me having a my say is more important than the hurt it will cause.

    *how deeply the hurt would be.


    It's complicated.

    Absolutely! But that's why I'm known as the 'witch'.

    For example, Dh often gets upset because if he offends someone I don't support him. He feels thats as his wife I should always stand by him. I do, but not when I feel you are in the wrong mate.

    I'm currently in a situation at work where management have decided that profit comes before patients (often we are talking very unwell patients and those who are dying). I don't believe any amount of profit is worth making those suffering suffer longer while I am expected to make them wait while I sell a Fredo. I have made it clear every day for the last week that I don't believe in this way of 'patient care' and that their wellbeing is my priority and now I'm getting treated like crp.

    To be honest, they are people I love because they are family. Because I know them. But they are not people I would choose to spend time with if they lived close by. I hope that makes sense. I do not see these people at all, Facebook has meant we "keep in touch" but it's not going to end well it seems as people think they should be able to post anything without repercussions!

    My brother is racist and proud, him and my sister, my aunt, cousin, bil are all against me in my challenge of their bigoted views and if I could delete them all, I would. I have unfollowed. It would be awkward to delete them but I never see them. My brother lives in another state.

    That's just fu(ked. I'm sorry. My family are colourful but my core family are ok.
    With this info, I'd just withdraw. Block them, and waste no more energy on them. Pearls and swine.
