Recently my so called friend branded me as "sad" which was so hurtful....hmm....why she thinks like that???
Lets see from her point of view :
Sad because I have no social life;
I spend "all" my time sat in front of the computer;
Reading a book;
In other words, doing what this person considers to be unnatural...hmmm.....odd and "sad" simply because normally people don't do it.
Is anyone care about my point of view....hmm...???
I don't get out much...have never had much of a social life....not even after the marriage.
And it's never bothered me...not in the slightest.
I enjoy my life at home...keeping myself to myself...lol...enjoying spending time with the few friends I have....I care about my mum and my beloved husband. What else could a normal person do???...baahhh
And so it was quite hurtful to have been branded as "sad" recently by a so called close friend.
They don't blog....they don't do much online at all apart from a quick browse now and then.
They have a social life...they have more friends than I could ever handle...lol...
And in my opinion that's up to them.
Just like my computer enjoyment is up to me.
If I enjoy it, does it make me sad? Does it make me odd, or different from the norm? It is not something imposed on me by my sadness or it is not because I am taking a rescue in blogging on being alone or not having a social life...it is simply I like it.
It simply makes me who I am;
a person who loves to write when she isn't helping her mother or not having free time in home.
A person who has made many good friends in cyber space because of her ability to communicate...
And a person who - get this - actually enjoys having no social life...looks forward to settling down in an evening with an open laptop faced with lovely people offering interesting conversation.
Perhaps I'm missing the point of how people actually perceive a "sad" person.
But I...for sure....am not sad. I'm happy....I'm content...I'm me.
Get over it, "friend" !
