Many people think that being a social butterfly is pretty fun. You always have people to hang out with and you constantly have company. Well, let me tell you THAT ISN’T THE CASE.
Here are some reasons why:
You can’t talk about your doosray walay friends when you’re hanging out with one group
‘Oh acha, woh hum se zyaada important hai?’
Your plans with multiple friends groups clash and you have to choose which group to ditch
And both (or more) plans are all equally important. In such situations, it’s better to just not go anywhere. Make everyone unhappy.
Your phone goes absolutely crazy when every Whatsapp group is active, at the same time
Constant vibration. Buzz Buzz Buzz Buzz Buzz.
You have to make memories with all friends groups and that is a struggle
There are two ways to look at this problem. First, you can’t show overt affection/closeness with one group. You cannot have the other people feeling like they’re any less loved.
Everyone thinks they are your “best friend”
You’re a human being. You’re bound to be closer to one or two people out of a group. Well guess what, that isn’t very much liked either.
You know EVERYONE so people come to you asking about the randomest people in the world
‘Hey, do you know Aiza?’
‘Woh Aiza, Physics class walay Ali ki cousin’
‘I don’t know either of those people’
‘Oh acha, lekin tum tou sab ko jaantay ho?’
You sometimes feel exhausted with all the events on your social calendar
You’re expected to be everywhere at all times.
If you forget one plan people will make you feel really bad because they think you go everywhere else except with them
Because you need to put stuff down in your calendar a few weeks in advance.
You have actually considered using a calendar app to plan all your hangouts
Well isn’t too bad, zyada organize hojatay ho.
You have to decide who you’re to ditch every night
It’s a tough decision, believe me! This decision literally evokes the deepest anxieties in your life.
You can’t just post about one friend and then not even think about the rest so you have to manage your social media shout-outs for EVERYONE
You’re the mediator when people are fighting because “tum toh uskay bhi dost ho na yaar“
Most of the time the joking about what group you like more is a joke, but sometimes stuff gets serious and then you’re screwed.
You feel like you’ve become a professional juggler
Allocating time between everyone in crucial, but there are only so many hours of the day, and only two days in the weekend. You’re really in a tight spot.
Friends are the best, and honestly, the more the merrier (well to some extent). More friends means more drama, but you would rather have this *ittle wittle* amount of drama, rather than like, dying alone.
