Social media and devices have removed opportunities for quiet reflection and self awareness and replaced it with a distorted version of ‘other awareness’. This actually represents two significant disconnects that can leave you more lonely.
- Let yourself pause.
- Put the phone down.
- Listen to yourself.
Then, put your assumptions about others down, and have a conversation with a real person in real life.
This is all harder than it looks but if we don’t push against the ‘disconnect’ we will all end up very ‘connected’ and very lonely.\
