When we have problems, the first people that we should seek help from should be our family. Our parents are the first people that would be hurt when they know that we are going through some phase. However, not all people could be as close to their families as others. Some would rather tell their friends to spare their families from pain. But how much of these people do get positive results? Whom should they trust?
Admittedly, since I was young, I would open up with friends. It was hard for me to speak freely to my parents because they were both strict. Telling everything to my best friends was like talking to yourself. But when you are younger, most often than not, whether you are doing a good thing or bad, friends would tend to just be going along with whatever you want or have decided upon. What does it lack? MATURITY.
But as we grow older, we meet new people. Some would stay, some would go. But those who stays are the people that have such great impact in our lives. Aside from the people that we have met when we were kids or teenagers, we, writers/ online addicts (LOL) have formed a bond among several people. These people are the ones we have met from different social media sites. Isn’t it amazing how the social media sites have become such a huge part of our lives that some have actually met the person they wanted to be with for the rest of their lives? I didn’t meet my husband on Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg must still be in his diapers when I was in College! But the people that I have met online are the people who knows the real me. Why did I say that? It’s because, during the younger years, all we have talked about was probably on boys, fashion, gossips and shopping. But now, it is about LIFE.
It is not about leaving old friendships behind. But rather having friends that would truly understand the new you and be able to provide you with helpful insights. I don’t know how to put it in a much simpler way, but what I feel towards these online friends I have are truly, genuinely, pure happiness. They knock my head to know what I should do without having to really hit me physically. Probably because they are writers, the level of understanding might be the same. Or probably, I just look up at them differently.
How many of you have considered your online friends as real good friends? Being a member of several writing sites, it has helped us unload our thoughts and somehow feel recharged after reading positive feedbacks from fellow members. Somehow through our passion in writing, it has gained us friends, not just wanting to have people to read your posts and to earn you a cent or two, but somehow creating a bond that goes beyond ordinary kind of friendship. The connection may not be just limited to exchanging comments, but creating a bond that can also last a lifetime.
I am sure you also have people in your life whom you value a lot even if you have just met them online. What are your thoughts on this? My virtual consolers are just a handful. And I am sure that as they read this, they know who I am talking about.
