Sitting in a busy restaurant with all my attention on my sweet kids, and their naughtiness I randomly checked my surroundings and saw my hubby busy in mobile phone, then few other tables, most of the people with families or without families were busy in the same activity.
I felt lil bad, and I said to Hubby: Are you doing something important?
He said: No just …..
I said: hmmm …….
Laughing of my children bring my nerves back to normal and I get back to the lighter mood, they are my energy boosters, my power bank 🙂
Food served after few minutes and we had a lovely yummy EID dinner together.
Now the question is, all the people who were using cell phones while sitting with family or friends, on the same table and as per my thinking they were absolutely there to enjoy and spend some quality time together?
Then why they need this cell phone?
Are we so much tired of talking and sharing to HUMANS? Oh let’s say, human around you, MOTHER, FATHER, SISTER, BROTHER, SPOUSE, CHILDREN, OKAY USING JUST ONE WORD —FAMILY!!!!!
And speaking before anything more let me make myself very clear, I am not against cyber world friends or relations , I know and I believe that good people are everywhere , I have so many friends also ,but What I am trying to say is ;
PLEASE DO THINGS ON RIGHT TIME, ON RIGHT PLACE AND IN RIGHT WAY.
We must understand the values and emotions of people around you specially your family.
Well, this is where we stand today, we know the pain, problems, hobbies, future plans, daily routine of our friends and colleagues but we don’t know WHAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR OWN HOME. We spend whole day with them and then after coming back to home we are still busy in chatting with them , liking their posts on FB , sharing stuff on whtsapp, and your parents, your grandparents , your life partner are waiting for your time.
SAD BUT TRUE!
In my country where we live in joint families, Parents and siblings are all living under the same roof, and still we don’t have time for each other? We are so much indulged in this social media and cyber relations, thanks to FACEBOOK, WHTSAPP and easy mobile phone internet packages and rates.
I WONDER, WHY?
ARE WE AFRAID OF EXPRESSING OURSELVES IN FRONT OF EACH OTHER?
FEAR of LOSING ?
FEAR of ANGER?
Thinking, thinking and thinking …
Yes the only reason I understand is , It’s always easy to express feeling to unknown and to the person who is not directly linked to you , because he responds you comfortably even for the blunders you make, and he can give you advises and encouraged you and SHUTDOWN the window. TING TONG BYE BYE.
And when it comes to family you are afraid of REACTION.
Afraid of Anger, sadness, tears, you are afraid that you can’t break your family trust, you can’t show them that you are depressed, broken , can’t move on … You are just afraid of MIXTURE of reactions which could possibly occur.
BUT, All I wanted to say is YOUR FAMILY LOVES YOU AND THEY WILL NEVER SHUT DOWN THE WINDOW. THEY DON’T NEED Wi-Fi TO CONNECT.
They are always there for you, good or bad, but they are with you .They deserve you and your deepest feelings, your time, your tears and smiles they deserve everything that belongs to you.
WHY CAN’T WE JUST EXPRESS AND SAY THINGS, JUST LIKE WE DO WHEN WE ARE INFRONT OF SCREENS. WHY CAN’T?
Have faith on your loved ones. Trust them!
You will be happy and peaceful if you treasure them RIGHT NOW.
TODAY they are here with you, who knows what tomorrow brings or takes!
PLEASE, SPEAK OUT YOUR HEART, LOUD AND CLEAR.
FAMILIES deserve respect and love.
And on lighter note ..
May ALLAH bless us all and our loved ones. ameen
