Facebook has taught me one good thing about people… being critical about others is fine, as the person I criticize has done something similar at some point.
My world, at this point of time, is devoid of friends who actually meet me in person and speak to me, since everyone is soooo busy. Even my family members who are on Facebook never seem to be bothered whether I still exist outside this virtual world.
Mobile phones used to have a green receive and a red reject button on the touchpad sometime back and I am proud to say that people did take time out to actually meet in person as the main aim of the device was communication. Suddenly that communication has split into such a wide audience that most of the time there is a non-existence of this main motive. This has led to an unknown distance which never existed and was never expected.
Technology sure has grown leaps and bounds through the years but sadly it has only distanced people who were close and made the relationships non-verbal and emotionless. I am very sad to say today that even though I have 400+ friends here in my friend list, I don’t have one friend whom I would want to talk to or vice versa offline.
It has simply been a disaster for me staying away from my home town and my roots, I yearn to be beside my ageing father but destiny has something else in mind. I am really sorry if people raise eye brows and their nose reading this but it has been really painful. Even my friends have forgotten the call button which was such a favourite. The only thing they know now is to be critical and point my mistakes.

Everyone has problems in their lives, I agree, but ignoring also never gave any solution. If your favourite hobby is only to find faults please leave me alone, life has been full of it for me where I had to suffer because of others.
