If you follow my blog regularly you might’ve noticed that my last few posts have been a little gloomy. I haven’t been myself of late. The tone of my blog has suddenly become morose and I’m not striking the right chord with my readers either. Well, we’re all human right? We have our good and bad days. Thanks for bearing with me. I really appreciate you sticking around.

One thing that I did notice during this phase, however, was how in-the-moment we’ve become. With technology on our side we can let the world know the state of our mind, without saying much. How? Display pictures, status messages and updates on social media ofcourse!

It so happened that I put up some weird ‘I’m Bored’ dp on my Whatsapp last week and also removed the status message. Now, I keep changing my dp often and usually put up personal pictures. There’s some quote or otherwise if I don’t feel good. The status message is a bit tricky; meaning that it stays or goes anytime.

Now, I was rather amused when my cousin mom-in-law saw it and messaged, not only to enquire what happened but also to insist me to change it! She said it unsettled her and she’d feel blessed if I did the needful! That was certainly unexpected and like a good daughter-in-law, I followed her advice.

I have to accept, her words perked me up and I smiled for the first time that day. I wasn’t venting out in any way, but knowing that someone understood and cared felt good.

What do you think your dp says about you? Do you change it often or use it to grab attention?

    1. That’s a good idea. Keep everyone guessing. ????????
      Thanks for the comment…err…please don’t mind me asking…what does this bigggg word mean? What made you choose it? ☺

      1. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious means “atoning for educability through delicate beauty ” or simply fantastic. 🙂
        It’s from the movie Mary Poppins. I wanted something unique and different blog name, and what else can be unique than the one I chose. 🙂

          1. Ohh you speak Hindi! Now this is unexpected. I sort of assumed you weren’t Indian. Don’t know why. ????????

  1. Oh no.. my dp is what I set when I got whaysapp. .I bet people have got sick and tired f looking at it..????????

    I should change mine I think…

          1. What I mean is that many people just browse through profile picture of their contact list n even comment on ’em!

          2. Really?? Never heard that or did that! I do comment if i come across a profile pic…but don’t go around looking for them.

          1. That’ll surely please apple executives … They’re quite tensed with falling iPhone sales of late! 🙂

  2. i change my DP frequently and that you must know 😉 however, the change is only when I get hold of a new picture of mine, mostly I avoid using kids’ pics etc as DP… so if you have it, flaunt it 🙂

    Hope you are feeling better now, a quick chat?

    1. Ya I know you change your dp frequently. ☺????I too avoid putting up kids’ pics. Not too comfortable with it. We both got it, isn’t it? ????
      I’m much better now. Friends ka asar. ☺

    1. Wah…how nice. My husband as a rule never puts a pic in which I’m there. He and the kids…that’s it! Although I’m the one to change his dp, he prefers keeping me behind the curtains. ????

    1. I’m good now…thank you! ???????? It was a temporary low phase.
      I change my dp often..I like to. Try doing it…you’ll be pleasantly surprised if some lovely unexpected compliment comes your way. ☺

  3. Such a simple topic and yes after reading it I realised it happens… We don’t shed tears or fight and scream but it comes out in such a different way. I will keep a tap on my do and status now 🙂

  4. Honest confession, after reading this I check my Whatsapp DP. It’s same since 1 or 1.5 years. and same goes to status message. Guess I am odd one. Also, this post gave me an insight why my cousins change their DP often and ask kaisa laga…

  5. Really not thought about it. Is your dp your identity or something others should relate to? I change it frequently with a recent image or family picture

  6. DPs whether self portraits or messages and status updates speak about your state of mind at that time. It’s sweet of your MIL from extended family to reach out to you. Glad that the conversation with her lifted your mood.
    I dont change my DP and my status update is the boring old standard from WhatsApp 😀

  7. I only make sure that my face is visible in my DP because my whatsapp number is also my work number. Therefore, it should be decent. I don’t change frequently but maybe every 4-6 weeks or whenever I feel I have a picture worth my DP.

  8. Yes Dp and status says a lot about the person’s mindset. People start judging our lives with dp and status updates, well which is not the right way. I have also faced similar things in past, so I am very careful about my postings.
