F - Facebook Friends


She:
Why do you sleep so late everyday?
He:
Just like that
She:
And you keep on passing your time on facebook?
He:
Yup
She:
What do you keep on doing there? Doesn’t it get boring after some point.
He:
Well, I talk to people.
She:
Not all facebook friends are 'friends'. I hope you know that.
He:
I know. But it helps me somewhere.
She:
Helps you? In what?
He:
Seeing things through
She:
Explain
He:
Sometimes it’s these random strangers that understand you in a way even your closest aides haven’t been able to. These strangers have the ability to touch your soul deeper than your own blood. Sometimes, these strangers don’t let you down the way people in your life have. It's these strangers that can possibly lift you from the abyss that you keep falling into without any control. You know why?
She:
Why?
He:
Because they show you the mirror you cannot see or don’t want to see. And you know what, you ought to believe them.
She:
But how can you believe them? They don’t even know you.
He:
On the contrary, I believe them precisely because of the same reason.

  1. I do believe that friends are friends. It doesn't matter whether they are in the real world or in the virtual one.

  7. As others have said, friends are friends, whether online or in the physical world. I've had the opportunity to meet a couple of my Facebook friends, and they were just as genuine in person.

    1. Oh I agree to that. Some of my closest friends are from facebook whom I have never met. So yes, some friends are friends, no matter how you have met them.

  9. I know some people like that...
    Such social media has also reduced the need for real people around...
    Virtual connectivity is seen as a blessing...
    And I think that it has both sides!

    1. Just like every other thing in the world, social media has both sides too.
