Before I go on with a new blog, it would mean a lot to me if all you read my blog, to please subscribe, leave and even share my blogs with friends. While writing is very healing, my mission is to bring inspiration, truth, love and hope to others.
I sometimes feel like an old soul, or that maybe I could have been raised in another life time or country.
Why you ask?
Because sometimes I find myself so frustrated with this generation, even myself included. I mean, we have the ability to communicate with others in mere seconds. But something so simple becomes so difficult.
A friend was telling me recently that she believed that technology is actually making people more disconnected then ever. I agree with her. We are more apart then ever before. Some of us would rather look at our phones, or lap top screens rather then actually talk to the person closest next to us.
It’s almost as though, it has become difficult to look someone in the eye. Or even listen to someone without having to look at our phones. It’s as though a vast majority of us have A.D.D. Again, I am not perfect in this area either.
But it simply annoys me that with all of our avenues of communication, we cannot communicate (however quickly) that were not going to be able to make it to a meeting, or that were going to be late. Perhaps technology is even causing us to be more withdrawn or focused on ourselves.
That then leads me into another of frustration, that being that I have to be the one reaching out to others in my own life. I once thought that friendship goes both ways. Or so it seemed.
The reality has to be two fold, either people are seriously introverted (which is fine) or people lack communication skills, which is a problem. Is it not? I’ve noticed this problem that last handful of years of my life.
Very few people can execute basic people skills, for example I could say to someone “hi, how are you?
They respond: I’m good, thanks…
See the problem?
Being understanding, kind and gracious toward other personality types is one thing. Allowing others to stay as they in the name of tolerance is another. It’s a lie. A lie that only longs to keep us at a distance from one another.
Our society is in great need of reform, in every area. Loving others is great, but love also requires to want more for each other, because we are called to love others.
The reformation starts with you and I, lets not live in slow motion any longer.
