In this busy world we are surrounded with different kind of people. We react and communicate with them according to their way of communicating with you. Parent's are becoming busy as well as friend; in fact their are few appointments that they perhaps fail to meet due to some important reasons. Thus, the adage "time is gold" is always the motto for every one. If your parents are too busy and they forget your special day what should you do? how about if your friend is always late in your appointment, what should you do? and lastly what if your best friend forgot to invite you on her/his birthday,what are you going to do?

I hate waiting for like a thousand years for someone, unless it's a job interview, I'm getting promoted, or I'm waiting for Megan Fox for our hot date. Time is gold, definitely, but for others, it means their time is gold, not yours. It's pretty obvious that they're gonna value their time more than yours, and you shouldn't be offended by this, because it's just how it's got to be. Sometimes we just got to understand that people are busy, and they have to be late. I'm sure you can tell these type of people from those that are just lazy to show up.

Well, it depends on a situation. if parents are too busy and forget my special, i am still ok with it and i don't mind about it also. if you friend is late in my appointment, i should know a reason or make a phone call to ask where they are while i am waiting. I don't mind about getting an invitation of someone birthday, i really don't care about it..it is nice if they invite me and i will go, if not, i am still happy with my life...

Hi This is Preethi Thomas, Really if we love anybody so much if they avoid us then we will hurt, but one thing we are loving them so much, if really they do directly we can ask them about they avoiding, what i do is directly i will meet them and i will share my feeling how i felt bad and hurt, so they understands us, and next they wont do that type of mistakes, if really they are busy at that moment we can also understand their feelings and problems also. Bye Preethi thomas

We are only human that's why we feel frustrated, disappointed or even angry at things that sometimes is out of our control. But what differs us from other species is the way on how we understand things if trap in those unforeseen circumstances in our life. Human nature tells us to devise a way to get out of it or plainly devise a plan to overcome it. Every move we make and every decision we decide tells us who we are as a person. So if ever you're stuck in a situation like this again, ask yourself, is it worth to be angry or disappointed or frustrated? Or better yet, take time to breathe and understand things first.

Our way of life today is very crucial, its fast and very high tech. Each person has many ways on how to adapt to the changes. Our world is constantly changing, adapting, improving and progressing, and we must learn to live with it. People may get busy sometimes but its not a reason that we tend to forgot the important person or activities in our life. We must learn to cope with the changes and always be happy on it. Happy Mylotting!!! .. :)

hmm honestly i would get upset if anyone forgets their appointments with me,or even worse make other appointments on the same dates when i was the first to "book" their time..but then eventually i would talk myself out of feeling down and just be reminded that there's always another day for these "dates",right?for one my parents are not the sort who celebrates occasions such as birthdays etc,they just dun feel these are important..as for my friend who's always late,well i haven't met a friend like that yet,i can always wait if she's late by 30mins,but any longer?well..let's just say she will likely face an interrogation from me on what led to her being late.. :) haha,and i would perhaps suggest ways for her to improve things so she can be on time in future..ain't that great? as for ur last qn,hmm my best friend never celebrates her birthday with a party so im afraid i can't answer u on that one either.. but i agree with u that "time is gold" and everyone seems to want to get the most amount of things done in the shortest possible time which is understandable..which of us wouldn't wanna take time out to smell the roses and watch the nice scenery?question is how many of us can afford to..hmm.. sorry for detracting a little off topic in my last part there,but in conclusion i just gotta say "take things easy and life will be much better"..if we wanna be unhappy/angry/upset,it just takes a second and any small little thing can trigger our inner resentment..most of time,i just try to calm myself down and not get upset if i can afford to.ultimately,i would be on the losing end what with all the fretting etc..

We have to divise our own ways rather than sticking to thinking wether anyone thinks of us. People around us are getting bussier so fast. Our parents are to move with time because if they fail, their families will face great problem and resultanly we have to suffer. Our friends are getting busy day by day. Let them do it. Dont please interupt them. Because they are gathering peace and prosperity in availing their time. Actually we all everyone are retained in time frame. If once we get timed out, we have to retreat.
