Not long ago when two people wanted to part and go their own way;you actually spoke to each other and said that “the relationship” is over…… a situation that requires tackt and nerves to say that….
Then along came the good’old text messaging and so only with a few words and not having to look the other person in the eyes…. Write the text and press “send” and the relationship is/has ended and then a quick login on a social network and the person changes their status to “single” again and now the world knows , with just a quick click you are alone again….
How easy it is to say “good-bye” and I don’t want to be with you anymore….. How impersonal electronic devices and the Internet make the world!
But now there is this so called “bean plant” that can do the job for you as I recently read. Just put the seed in the soil and follow the instructions and then in about 5 days you have a plant and on a leaf is written” It’s over” …. I see this as even worse than a text message, because a text message you get right away and with the seed thing you have to wait. This may make the person think that they are loved and not being dumped, or maybe it’s Good, because in the germination period you may decide to get back together again and dispose of the plant before you can see its leafs….. The wonders of nature!
I wonder if the folks who thought this bean thing up was having relationship problems and didn’t know how to say “good-bye”…… The never ending ways of breaking-up
If anyone out there has tried this method of breaking-up….. We all would be very grateful if you would let us all know how the person who received the ” break-up bean” reacted?
Life can be painful at times but greenery still has its moments!
It is said that people check their social networks 35 times a day…. Wow and when do you have time to work or do anything else; I ask????
I think it seems like these things are taking over people lives. I calculated what that would amount too:
35 x 7 = 245 times a week x 52 weeks = 12,740 time a year someone checks out their social network standing…. Any time for a life????
I guess there is no time for anything else like always… wherever you are to look at your mobile device and see what others are doing or to post that you may be sitting on a bus or the likes. I have really noticed that no one is talking to each other anymore and is totally dependent on their cell phone or the likes. Is it true that these devices are making mankind dumb and that people don’t know how to socialize anymore because of them and that before you make one step you have to go online to see if there is anything written about what you want to do before you do it….
Don’t want to be seen as un-cool in my social group because I didn’t check it out first before I did something….
Whatever happened to I’ll take a chance and do something.. like go to a restaurant before checking out what others said and besides that… Do I like what you like??? Maybe not and so how can things you read be true than???? Or the rating everything.. I read that lots of people do it for the money or vouchers that they can get… So again where is the truth???
Sorry got a bit side tracked from 35 times…. Ok, if that is so when do you have time for anything??? You get up in the morning check online, maybe post you’re going to take a shower “ IMPORTANT”.. After that breakfast and so on throughout the day…. And to be honest I am not the least bit interested in that and maybe many other people feel that way too!
I bet if these people went off-line for a couple of days they would find out who their real friends are and if anyone really contacted them( call/ pop by in person) then they would know… I have some real friends and if no one contacted them… then bad luck… no friends.
I ask sometimes where is this all leading us too?? Any answers out there… I’m off line
Perfect times seem to be a thing of the past. I got thinking-I can still do that; an amazing fact!!! About how it was when I was I kid. Life seemed sooooo perfect and the books we read or the TV shows we watched were full of happy people and there was never violence. Those were happy times!!!
What sparked this off was an old TV show that I saw on TV the other day; depicting the happy family. You may remember – Mom stayed home and cooked and was always perfectly groomed and smiling no matter what happened – Are mom’s like that today???
The kids were clean and happy and never complained. Dad was happy too and came home in the evening with a smile on his face as if he just had the best day in his life…. Maybe he did and we just don’t know what he was up too??? I don’t want to ruin the perfectness here… so the dad had a great day at work and is plain old happy!!!
Then there was the great book with Dick & Jane and their dog Spot – that book taught me to read and everyone depicted in the book was happy even the mom & dad. Happiness never seemed to stop. It was everywhere you turned and I was happy too, and didn’t know any better. Life was full of happiness.
I can’t remember as a kid my parents even arguing…. They were happy too, ok- they got upset with me once in a while or our dog but those were only trivial setbacks as I see it now. But back then that meant the end of the world, if I got in trouble!!!
Somehow through the years people stopped being so happy on TV and the people around me don’t seem as happy as they were years ago either. What has happened to being happy?????? Or has the world changed soooo much that people have forgotten what it is like to be happy.
Sometimes I wish for those carefree and happy days of the past again, because people seemed more relaxed and not always in a hurry or worrying about the latest up-date on their social network or some other device that distracts us, so that we have no time to relax and enjoy life.
It would be great to see more content & happy people around – and not in the superficial sense either. Will those sort of days ever come back or are they lost forever??????????
