It's up to you to like it or not.. but please, I never mean any harm. (^^,)*
Have you ever get any short message or email or letter that sounds (more or less) like this? This is something I got this afternoon..
"20.30.97 are the numbers of life or death. Do not delete this message before you forward it to 8 female and 6 male friends. If you delete this message, you will get bad luck on the 20th or 30th. If you forward this message, then happiness will come to you on 20th or 30th. This is not a lie and really true, because this message has been cast a spell by someone whose dead already. Sending message will cost you some (rupiahs), but why save it if it will give you bad luck."So, have you ever get those kind of message? I have, plenty of them.. saying "you have to forward this so you will have luck", or with a threat like "send this or someone you love will soon die", and some also "said send this to 10 people at this minute and you will meet your soul mate / true love tomorrow!!". WHATT??!! Give me a break!! Why do you have to talk trash like that? A thought like "are you cursing me?" even came up in my mind sometimes..
I really hate those chain message. Telling you to send them to other people, sometimes with a false hope and worst, with a threat. And some people just bluntly forward it. I mean, why do you have to believe that a short message can give you luck, can harm you friends and family? And what it says, for example the one above, a dead people cast a spell on the message??!! Did he/she wrote it by themselves? Wow! Wouldn't it be creepy if a ghost can have a cell phone and sending threating text to humans?!
Some people who has received those kind of message, then forward it, sometimes add a sentence like "well, I don't know if it's true, but it doesn't harm to send it". Why do you have to send it anyway?
For us, who have religions, Christians go to Church every Sunday, or Vihara for Buddhist, pray five times a day for Muslims, Hindus go to Pura, and any other religion.. you pray to God, you believe in Him, do you? For what I believe, He is the One who has the right to say when you are going to die, or sick, happy, or anything will happen to you.. it's His words, and not those non-sense messages.
All I wanted to say is.. please, for anyone who made those crappy message, please stop that.
And my dear friends, if you get them, just ignore it.. if maybe, whatever it says bothers you.. bring it in to prayer, ask God to guide and protect you and all the people you care about.
They are only short messages and mean nothing. Don't let it controls you.
Remember, mind over power. Don't let your head filled with those thought about getting bad luck or all those negatives things.. it's what those bad people (who create the chain messages) wants.. making you fell down, lost confidence, see you rot.. don't let them get the pleasure..
Only one to trust oke? that is God..
fiuhh.. lega deh..
P.S. almost forgot to say.. chain letters or messages are okay (to me).. as long as it contains information for the greater good, something that is useful for all of us. Like info about a friend getting married, or someone we know is having trouble & the others sending messages to gather helps.. things like that are better to me.
Oh well, this is only my personal opinion and how I feel towards those kind of chain messages.
This post is made with no intention to offend anyone.. and anyone are welcome to give theirs (opinions) too..
