Today is my friends birthday. A very Happy birthday to her. I have all these years except for last year posted pictures and poured out my heart on Facebook/inst telling her how much she means to me and how great she has been.
Last year I thought that may be it was ‘okay’ not to post pictures and that she already knows how I feel about her. But after that day I kept regretting as if I have done a really bad thing by not wishing her through a wall post. Social media is a strange place but there isn’t any denying that it is now part of our life. We get our story, entertainment, social interaction from social media.
I know! I know! this is how the social media has taken control of us. But here it wasn’t about Facebook or Instagram or how many likes/comments it receives; it was what it meant for her! Did she expect to see a colorful wall? Was she disappointed not find any of mine? (Yes she was! She hinted later)
We had college days to meet each other regularly but since then it is very hard to meet her let alone keeping on to what was happening in her life. What we have is old memories to cherish, phone calls and text messages to remember them and social media to make wall posts just kidding 😉 to know where she ate her last meal no no 😉 😉
“to just know what is happening in her day to day life”.
And I have learnt that these post seems stupid to many who have finally realized that they should call their friends rather then just a wall post. But I feel no regret in making that Facebook post because;
Firstly I do call and text her to wish and I make the wall post later
Secondly if someone likes a wall post they just do and I am going post one nice smiling pictures of her where I think she looks the happiest and I would wish her in a small post written just in her honor.
Years from now I don’t know where life takes us but right now I am ready to be there for a friend even if it means to post a special message on her wall. After all it is a way to show care and love for the other person.
It is the small time one takes out of the so called busy life to acknowledge that their part in our life has meant a lot. And that their presence does made many things easier and happier. And that I am glad she was born in the right time to share with me the gift of her friendship.
Meeting her later today. Looking forward to spending amazing time together. ❤
