Anyone who has a facebook account will probably know what im talking about, thing is its swarming with pictures of tortured animals and humans on a regular basis, often posted with incorrect information encouraging people to repost it to "stop" these people.. The problem is that while I understand the whole "people need to know this happens" part of it I see this everyday and I am extremely sensitive to it, it gets to the point where im depressed and edgy all days because im constantly having images fresh in my mind of extreme cases of animal torture.
I guess im posting this to reach out to people who might feel the same way, how do others deal with this stuff if you feel the same way? Ive considered removing the people who do this frequently, but I feel like this might offend them since alot of them are close friends or relatives, I have been trying to unsubscribe from updates from everyone who does this but once I do someone else starts so its quite futile since all it seems to accomplish is to make my facebook very empty.
And to the people who post these sort of things.. I respect your compassion and appreciate what you are trying to accomplish, but please try to understand that im not the only one who feels bad from this sort of stuff even though I might be more sensitive then most, and chances are alot of other friends of your friends are posting the same things, leading to an endless circle of suffering.
In the end if considering just removing facebook all together, maybe im just to sensitive.. Would be a shame though since its my only way of keeping in touch with alot of friends and family I cant see regularly in real life.
