I want to throw my phone away | Personal Thoughts

i want to throw m phone away

When the golden sun rays draw the curtains of my eyes, my hands search for my LG phone. My LG phone, with a big glass screen, wraps itself with a black rubber cover like a blanket and sleeps all night beside me. So when it is happily found, my index finger gently touches it and it recognizes my fingerprint and wakes up in an instant. On waking up, it radiates vivid colours on my face with its vibrant display.

Despite its positive appearance, it makes me sad when I see the empty notification bar. This sucks all the zestΒ  I have when I wake up every morning and creates a vacuum. An empty notification bar reminds me of my worthless existence in this virtual world. At that moment, I regret being rude to my friends who used to send me “Good morning” forward messages every morning.

After a boring day devoid of calls, messages, likes and follows, I lay on the same old bed at night. Amidst the darkness of the sky and the creepy sounds that I hear from the outside, I hope to see a “Goodnight” from someone online. But everyone is busy in their own virtual worlds. Late night warns me that I have wasted one more beautiful day in a desperate search for likes and messages.

When hope ceases, anger rises! Anger motivates me to throw my phone away to proudly show the whole world that I am unaffected by an empty notification bar. Throw it away to pretend that I am okay with it and heal my giant ego from the wounds made by the absence of virtual love and care. Throw it so hard at the wall and watch the phone shatter into ten thousand pieces.

Then why don’t you just throw your phone away?

Uhmm… Because those ten thousand pieces of my phone will remind me of ten thousand rupees that my loving mom had selflessly taken from her tiny savings. As long as I remember that, my phone is indestructible. As long as I am grateful for that, I will continue being quiet and jealous of the girls who get the adulation (more likes, shares and comments) than they deserve. :-/ :-3

Okay… It is time for me to enter the realm of dreams. Going to sleep, hoping that I would see some likes or comments on this post tomorrow morning.

Goodnight my precious reader πŸ™‚

  1. Haha.. I know sometimes I also want to throw my phone away but not for the reason you mentioned.. mostly because I want to enjoy the real world!

    1. Oh
      Different paths but same same destination πŸ˜€
      Hey, if u ever want to throw your phone away, throw it towards the indian ocean, i will catch it from Kochi

        1. After many years of waiting, i sing along the beaches of kochi

          “Kya huva, tera wada
          Phone abh tak nahi mila”

          1. Arey kuchh paane ke liye kuchh khona pdta hai.. bnde.. phone paane ke liye sing krne se kaam nhi chlega sea water enjoy krna pdega! πŸ˜œπŸ˜„

          2. Agar aap kuch jyada zor se throw kartha toh ye sab nahi hotha
            It is ur fault

          3. Mujhey lga you know how to swim.. art mai swim kr skte ho.. virtual world mai swim kr skte ho.. try once you will enjoy πŸ˜‰

          4. Arey agar aisa kar saktha toh main khud swim karke usa aakar aapse phone letha :-3

          5. Naa actually vo doori thodi jayada ho jaati and then you have to take care about legal formalities.. vhin try krna easy rehta hai Unni ji! πŸ˜œπŸ˜„πŸ˜„

          6. Toh aaj se intzaar karoonga
            Aasman se ek iphone aane ki intzaar
            Samundhar se ek galaxy s14 aane ki intzaar

          7. So it is owning a foreign costly mobile vs obeying mom’s warning about not going near the sea.

            Abh dangal hoga

  2. Nice way to ask for likes, comments and followers. Hehe. But keeping the phone down has become a difficult task nowadays though no one calls, no messages yet simply checking every now and then. There will be de- addiction centres soon coming up in the future.

    1. You are smart ji πŸ˜€ you realised my masterplan to get some likes and comments πŸ˜€

      Yes, de addiction centres are coming soon

  3. This desire for likes and comments can get vicious at times and so the moral is never get desperate! I take it fron your write-upπŸ˜…

  4. hahaha..I do want to throw my phone away sometimes..but the world lives on phone and breath on it..Even if I want to go away,it will pull me back.
