Hi, Elsa007, it seems that you're almost reached a satisfactory answer. You don't have to go looking for a trouble. My advice is not to walk straight into the exhibitionist's trap. They just want blessings from many and unspecified users to share their boring life together. Some people are weird craving for a celebrity-like lifestyle and they can be delusional in their belief that "I'm superior than... at least YOU!". It's easy to know it's a gimmick.

Luckily or unluckily, your close friend has such a sister, which is a reality, regardless of your likes and dislikes. I think your concern/frustration is caused by viewing the fact that your friend's hanging out and merging with the wrong crowd on the other side of your friendship, right? Sounds sad...... ʅ(´-ω-`)ʃ
Well....you can't control the situation, but you can believe your friend's real thoughts at any time. I bet your friend is a much better person than you suspect. I hope you can clear all misunderstandings! Don't be swayed by the kind of stuff and focus on your study for future success! Good luck Elsa! =͟͟͞͞٩(๑☉ᴗ☉)੭ु⁾⁾

Hi Ken
Thank you for your reply which put me back the smile! You brought up a good point. Oddly enough, it rang the bell just when I was taking a social study class today where we learned about the current situation of Korean Peninsula.

I thought geopolitics is very similar with how human beings behave. Of course, it's much more serious than what we do in our daily life! :) There is an unpredictable bunch in the world, yet we still have a choice about what we do and which way to go. It's okay to avoid visiting places where I get a creepy feeling! I'll ask my friend if we can enjoy our study and take pleasure in association. :)

Social media is fun actually, but at the same time, it's a pain in the neck when we are addicted. Annoying comments and images are sent on a one-way, so they can be like a violence to viewers. Little posters who are entirely preoccupied with themselves know their posts are unwelcome. There they go bragging again...!!
If I meet such people, I would be able to keep off and show my reactions, but on online, I just end up feeling negative about the phoo-phoo time!

I have a problem. To be honest, I don't want to have a peep for posts by who live a useless lifestyle, but since my close friend has that kind of sister, I'm sometines forced to bear the pain...!! My heart hurts...., I'm a sensitive person. What should I do?? Should I stop contact my friend online?

Well, I'm figuring out now..., maybe my friend wants to have one for a family, particularly for the exhibitionistic sister to meet her demand.
Then, if I don't really want to see the nonsense, perhaps I should NOT care about my friend's family matter even though we are close friends. (...wait, does it really matters? What they share out there is originally empty of all meaning. Sorry!) I don't know what I will do... ahh... I wish if my friend could make a peaceful site for us where we can tell EACH OTHER what is going on in our life. You know, girls want to share together, not one-way massage but... ;) Can anyone help me!? Give me an answer-----!
