Random Thoughts at 3 AM

How sad it is to know that we get “too busy” to at least pay our last respect to the people who once became part of our lives. Is it really about being busy or the relationship was not just that deep that we think an online post expressing “our deepest condolences” will be enough? Will that online message even reach or console the family? I am just saying.

But who am I to blame people? It is their priorities anyway. And I am not excluding myself. I am guilty of committing this in the past and today, it made me rethink and re-evaluate.

That is why I envy our old folks. Because despite the arthritis and whatever disabilities they have, they find time to pay their last respect to their former colleagues and friends. They have no social network accounts, but they make sure they personally express their deepest sympathy to the family.

It is just sad.

  1. Oh Dear! Ouch!!!! Ohhhhhh (wincing my face in pain repeatedly). So sorry. Hope the leg is getting better now. I’m trying not to imaging the picture. Hugs

  2. This concept of time poor is an advertising ploy to charge more for time saving things. We still have the same 24 hours that we always had, we still have the power to make choices about how we spend it – it is just a case of making a conscious choice rather than what we are in the habit of doing.

    Older generations don’t buy into this belief – they have retained the skills they were taught when independence was essential and their routines include actual experiences rather than virtual ones.

    I still prefer a cup of tea with a mate to reading their Facebook feed, but then perhaps I am getting old!

  3. Hey BerryDuchess, who is keeping you awake with these sad thoughts? I totally agree that people should be celebrated always (dead or alive). Unless if we are saying they didn’t matter or make any impact in our lives and we don’t miss ’em. How busy can one get for love? I wonder.
    …and what happened to your leg? 😦

  4. Im afraid the new generation is losing a lot when it comes to values, yeah? The leg is still healing and recovering. But i can already do my regular activities. Thanks for asking Andy! 🙂

  5. There’s always time to pay the last respect to someone, especially! When they were a part of our lives, I’m afraid this was severely lost in this new generation.

    How’s your leg burn? from the oil? all recovered I hope 😊

  6. This is one of many examples of the old school way of doing things is best. People come into our lives and help provide it with meaning and we should cherish them in all stages of life. We live in a world where people are overbooked and stretched to the max. It’s sad we can’t take time to do things for others to help make their lives better.

Let me know your thoughts :)
