    “You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won't mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever.... connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.”
    ― C. JoyBell C.

    Friends do not know whether this post of mine is good to read but I always get an urge to post something and feel happy to read the fbs. That way I feel I can keep in touch with my friends. Sometimes something is in my mind but I am not able to convey it properly. I take the help of quotes to convey what is in my mind. Thanks to google which helps me to convey my feelings

    In my experience with some people I become so close that I expect a lot of affection from them and if I dont get I feel lost. I dont meet them everyday but they are always in my heart . I know that when you expect something you wont get it. Like a small child I want them to be more close only with me and always shower their affection. I know Its not a good thought but what to do I am made like that. My grand daughter is also like me only she wants her parents to show affection only to her and not to others. If my daughter or son in laws helps me out in anything she does not like because she is very possessive of them.

    To hear what is unspoken,
    To see what is invisible,
    To feel without even touching…
    Is the miracle called “friends

    In the modern world we get addicted to computers. A good friend is also like a computer. They enter our life, we save them in our heart, format our problems, shift them to opportunities and never delete them from memory

    Nice post. It is good to have many friends, doctors say. It is healthy for good mind itseems.

    But I dont know if " Addiction" is good ! :)...because there will become too much dependence and lot of expectations. If there is so much dependence, we will only suffer disappointments even if a friend , even without intention, is a little bit negligent also.

    Very True Vijima,

    I this heard somewhere 'the greater the love, the greater the risk of hurt'.
    But guess it is worth the risk :)

    vijima, nice to know that you have many close friends... Addiction to them to some extent is ok...but we should not get affected by them... Hope god showers you with many more good people around you!!

    vijima,
    true when we expect our close ones to respond in some way and they dont respond as we think, we feel very bad..this is natural and dont call it addiction..it is human tendancy to expect from people we like

    Dear Vijima,
    I have started my day by reading your post today and you know I felt so happy. Really true Vijima, when we feel close to someone, we expect to be more and more closer to them all the time and our expectations go on increasing without any end. But we definitely have to keep a track on our feelings and give a break to our expectations inorder to hurt our loved ones and ourselves.
    Nice quotes Vijima. Enjoyed a lot reading your post.
    Hope you add up more and more friends in your list and wish you won't feel like missing anyone as one or the other will be there to relieve you whenever you feel like you are not getting enough from someone else. Whether anyone of your friends get to your expectations or not, your computer and all the ILites here will definitely try to please you, share you and reach your expectations.
    Have a nice day Vijima.

    Latha.
