With age, our priorities change too. But, who realises all this when we are kids or teens. However, reality strikes us sooner or later.
Mom and I shared a friendly bond rather than a mother-daughter bond till I was a teen. But with time things changed. It’s not that I don’t love my mom anymore or the feelings for her have vanished. It’s just that I am a grown up now and my priorities have changed.Initially, I use to share my entire days routine with mom in detail. Now, I hesitate a bit.
So, all this began to change since my 21st birthday. Before that things seemed fine. I was not much of an outgoing person when I was in my teens. Eventually, I began socialising and making new friends. Mom was always concerned about my choice of friends.
At the start, her behaviour was kinda ok to me. But then, she began interfering in everything I did. Also, she began to restrict me from talking to certain friends whom she disliked. I don’t say mom is wrong, but sometimes she too may miss-judge people.
Yet, I believe in keeping everyone happy. I respected most of her decisions and adhered to them. Though sometimes her expectations would reach the sky!
So, this one day, mom and I were having a good time relaxing on the couch. From nowhere, she brings in the topic that Sam is not a good guy, why is he on your friend list. I was amused to hear this, as I was not aware that mom checks my social media updates. This began to hit my head, as I started feeling that I have no privacy left in life. We all know that certain things need to be private.
However, I couldn’t say much to mom as I would never want to hurt her, neither did I want to break my friendship with Sam.
That’s where I remembered about the app LYK. It’s an app that values each individual’s privacy to the fullest. Not only that, it also allows you to keep your close connections invisible. For instance, I can keep my contacts invisible and mom will not know. In this way, neither do I hurt mom nor Sam. So, you see how LYK made my life simple.
