Re: Why Exactly?
Maybe if you could get outside of your head a little more, you wouldn't be feeling this bad? I really do think that the internet (in general) and specific types of sites (in particular) are contributing to the way we feel about ourselves.
Before the internet (social network sites especially) we wouldn't have had any knowledge whatsoever about whom was hanging out with whom... and how often. Folks are in each other's space so much more now, there is very little privacy and it is far too easy to get caught up in other people's 'business'.
When you're feeling like crud, instead of going to have a gander at the pages of the people that have hurt you in the past, perhaps you would feel better by just stepping away from the keyboard? Or at least instead just trying to connect with those current friends that you've (previously) mentioned? Rubbing salt into a gaping wound isn't doing you any favours.
