The brilliance behind the whole idea of Facebook is that now you can keep in contact with all the people you've once, still is or probably will be affiliated to.
The problem is some people that fall in either one of those categories are either d-bags, weirdos or trolls. We also sometimes befriend a family member, and he or she does something that you don't ever wants to know, but the image/memory lingers still. And when we meet said person, we can't help but purse our lips and pray to God to make time flies faster so that the awkward encounter to end soon.
Just like everybody else, I too have cousins, aunts, uncles, brothers and parents in my friendlist. I myself have this cousin in his teens, fifteen to be exact. He kept posting statuses that suits those girls who by choice made their account a diary for all to see.
So every hour I could see in my newsfeed his rant about people hating him, him being lonely, you get the jizz. To use the technical word, bitching. The statuses made me want to tear my foot off and throw it at him. Seriously.
He reminds me that once, maybe I was too a bitchy teen who likes to make emo statuses for everyone to see. Urgh.
He made me feel old. Now this guy, who once I played tricks on him just because I am much older than him. Now he too have the same problems I once had as a teen. Now he too is going through the rough years of not being sure who you are and where you should be. Now I can give advice, like one of those old people!
Sabda baginda Rasul s.a.w,
ان الله ليعجب من الشاب الذي ليست له صبوه
Maksudnya; Sesungguhnya Allah sangat kagum dengan pemuda yang padanya tiada sifat kebudak-budakan.
I guess as every body else is growing up, I am also growing old. I can no longer pamper myself so much and start stepping outside my comfort zone because, in order to be great I must start today. Time is a luxury that I can no longer afford. So I probably need to start thinking like an adult then :)
