The Invisible

My Facebook's newsfeed is filled with wedding photos. Five on my friend's list got married yesterday, July the 30th. Oh wow. What's in the date anyway? The weddings were held in different location and in different themes. I got to see those who were invited. It's hard to ignore since the photos are swarming all over. Then it got me to thinking... why was I not invited? I mean, we've been colleagues and been in the same room before. Why was I not remembered? Then it struck me. I have like over a thousand friends but not a single soul said "hello" to me or asked "How I'm doing?" over the past days... Sure I message them on Mother's day, Father's day, Birthdays, Anniversaries and even concerned when I read someone was confined in a hospital. What's the purpose of having a Facebook anyway when no one knew you existed? Oh, well. I might contemplate of deactivating my account. But for now, I'm just a spectator of their world. Hello beautiful people of myLot. How are you today? (c) Photo was taken by yours truly.

It's not a good; they only wanted to show off what they had been into.

Yeah, Though I'm happy for their achievements, it makes me wonder if they do still remember me? Oh well, I'm just a number on their friend's list.

Yes. It would be better to just have those who are close to you on Facebook. Good idea. I'd better get over my friend's list and get rid those who doesn't give a damn about my existence. Sounds like a busy day, huh? I admire your positive thinking though.

@crazyhorseladycx That's true. They won't notice you're there and they won't even know you're gone. It's sad alright. Ironic, FB calls them "Friend". Sigh. Anyway, hope you'll have a lovely day today.

Could it be that they are trying to economize , so they just chose the closest friends and colleagues . Unless you are one of those closest friends , then you should really wonder , my friend . So don't be sad .

hahaha. It's okay. I'm over with it already. I used to be one of their closest friends. Maybe for them I'm not part of that circle anymore because I moved back to my hometown. The long distance friendship doesn't work, I guess.

@rachz_kisses Oh so that's why . Maybe they think you can't come any way . However , for friendship purpose they should have at least messaged you their invitation .
