Please DO NOT LIKE this POST.
As much as I would like to be “liked” or “loved” or whatever other emoji Facebook // Instagram has created for me to crave and count, I would rather you complete this post than “click” on it (and no, clicking on the “See More” button does not count #youtriedit)
So what exactly do I want you to do?
- Call a friend does not have social media. (Unicorns are real people.)
- Call a friend who rarely posts on social media. (Once a month or less.)
- Call a friend instead of liking a post on their social media.
And if they don’t answer your call, leave a message, send a text and/or an email letting them know that “you know it’s random // it’s been a while but you want to catch up // say congrats on XYZ // etc.”
Use the voice message, text, and/or email to set up a time to have a phone conversation or Facetime session or whatever app / program you prefer.
For Extra Credit and / or Superstar points (Don’t judge me – I have a 2 year old whose newest obsession is superheroes.) :: you can set you a time to meet up in person.
Why – oh why – am I asking you to do this?
Because the people who need help the most often have the hardest time asking for it.
So I’m asking.
I’m asking you to help me,
A little about me…I have a mood disorder – and no I’m not talking about PMS. I said mood, not moody lol There are days I move at warp speed – I was probably a kick ass ninja in a former life – and there are days I can’t even brush my teeth – luckily I’m not french kissing anyone these days. or nights. #sosingle
But all jokes aside – I am lucky to have people in my life who take the time to not only call me, but to reach me. And when they can’t, they don’t give up. THEY SHOW UP. #literally
I won’t lie and say that I have always been receptive to their care and concern. In fact, at times I have been downright hostile. #sorrymomanddad But it is because of them you are reading my obnoxious commentary instead of my obituary.
So please help me,
And after you’ve completed this post please comment “Done” so I can thank you with an obscene amount of emojis. Oh and don’t forget to share with / tag anyone who you know would like to be a part of this.
P.S. I have an unlimited amount of emojis. 🙂
