Two Worlds !!

When was the last time you hung out with your friends?
When was the last time you walked those silent and lonely roads?
When was the last time someone smiled at you, just for you and just because of you?
When was the last time your teacher punished you because you were being naughty in the class in her absence?
(If you can answer all the above mentioned questions then it’s alright but if you can’t or taking too long to respond, think once again about your life !! )

We try to live in two different worlds simultaneously; one online and another offline.
Firstly, we log-in then we share mindless things, laugh at silly jokes, cry for nothing, like meaningless statuses, comment on every stupid thing on our wall, chat with every known and unknown person, poke each other crazily, smile when we got nothing else to say.

We use smiley(s) most of the times. We don't have to waste our words instead we leave a smiley and everyone will understand what it means, no matter what and no one cares whether those smiley(s) really reflects your moods or conveys your emotions. Everyone use them because no one has time to think beyond them.

We are so addicted to these fake emotions and the glitter of the virtual world that we never realize that we are missing the reality, true beauties of the life and the nature, some true relationships that need our time and attention.

And then comes life : offline, where neither fake emotions nor words help us much. Life cannot be planned. It's all about instincts and how profound we are at the moment of need. People see through us when we fake, at least the people who truly care about us. And when we smile, they smile too. They stay with us through our good and bad times.

Both lives online and offline have their pros and cons, however we should always prioritize reality because that's what is going to stay with us till the end.

keep smiling !!
keep rocking !!

Very true.. Somehow being part of a virtual world makes us lose our sense of reality.. how about a hug to expess our feeling for a loved one? Why just smileys? are we afraid to smile at people?
