Why people prefer virtual world over physical world? Because it is more responsive to our touch and less trickier to understand than actual human emotions.The virtual world is so much more tender and considerate with its words – ‘like’ & ‘friend’ and yet empowering with its words like ‘followers’ & ‘report/spam’ right at a click.What we don’t realize is this escape hatch is the easy way out but not the most gratifying way into breaking down our issues.We don’t want to face the grim reality but live in the happy bubble we made for ourselves that can be popped by anyone,anytime.You don’t wait for warnings in real world.Downfall just happens.And remember your life will roll exactly the same way in virtual world unless you take charge of your own problems.Internet is a tool we use to fulfill our demands.Not the other way around.

  1. Thank you for sharing this important insight, my friend.

    I would add that “liking” or “sharing” some meme, no matter how true and on point that meme might be, is easily mistaken as DOING something by the liker and sharer,

    Whatever the contentious topic… gun control, abortion, religion, politics, whatever… such bumper sticker “activism” is typically just a convenient way to feel good about doing nothing… and, more often than not, merely preaching to the choir… more like the cyberspace choir of likers and sharers glorifying itself.

    The rub is that the belief that one is doing SOMETHING when in reality one is doing NOTHING renders us even vulnerable than doing nothing at all.

  2. Thank you for sharing your views! Loved the last bit! It is so easy to mistaken that doing something virtually is equivalent to doing something in reality.
    If there’s a disaster happening somewhere – our 1 like is NOT equivalent to 1 blessing or any kind of aid – our bit is not done unless we nurture our reality.
