Why We Women Love Whatsapp?
Women love gossiping, it’s not just talking that happens there but a lot is shared including a lot of pain and anger. Sometimes women who gossip feel lighter and some weird studies even show that they tend to stay stronger emotionally; all said and done, I can pack up gossiping in a really pretty gift wrapper but at the end of the day it is a vice and one from which we ladies should stay away.
As we have been working on motivating you, my husband came up with this idea that I should motivate us women to not gossip.
Forget all that I have written above and let’s get gossiping but with a twist. Let’s convert the art of talking about others into something positive. This has been achieved by my friends in many ways and all thanks to one app in particular, whatsapp.
A few months ago we started out with a college group, for the benefit of our readers I studied in a girl’s college and so you can understand our need to talk 24/7. Instantly there were a whole lot of conversations on. At the onset I asked all of them if they were using their phones or anyone was using their hubby’s phone.
The very first day that we started we broke all records of beeping at home. All our phones kept beeping. One of my classmates had put her hubby’s number and the poor gentleman got so sick of us yapping through the day and night that the very next day he gifted her a phone. See advantages of talking….
Next hubby darling walked in and announced that you know these groups are active only in the first few days and then it just dies down. What he said was true as I had seen his groups go down that lane but a girl stopping talking is something I couldn’t fathom. The girls came up with this idea that we would announce that it’s our birthday, kid’s birthday or wedding anniversary. In a month at least 5 to 10 such occasions are celebrated. A lot of us share our kids’ victories and accomplishments. In this way the group remained active. With the birthdays coming most of were entering the 30s club. There was a lot of depression and hesitation in saying that we are 30. Once again a pact was made and that is from now on till we are senior citizens we shall remain 30.
During festival times we initially felt that all of us would be cooking and cleaning and wouldn’t have time to ping each other. It was completely the other way around. Each one was sending in pictures of their cooking accomplishments, pictures of swachh bharat abhiyan at home kept pouring in. Mathangi my classmate sent us pictures of milk pedas that she had made. Recipe was shared and six of us made the same dish within the next two days.
There are times when we share out the emotional turmoil that we are going through. While one shares others help by giving her the take it easy policy advice. Someone just cracks a joke and makes us forget the tension. At the end of the day sometimes you just want to get all that negativity in your life out. This group absorbs all that negativity and sends positivity back.
Every day we have a chat about topics that no one can imagine and every day we are stress free. Thank you to the girls my group for keeping us young, energetic and most important of all happy. A special thank you to the makers of whatsapp for letting us all connect in such a lovely way and for helping us chat without creating any noise pollution.
We motivate and you initiate is the topic we have been working on. Motivation today is to talk and get negativism out of your life. To read more on motivation try Cooking up a storm, Cleanliness begins at home but need not end there and Baking- A passion and much more.
