In a time when we are connected more than ever due to the advances of technology and social media, we are actually experiencing more loneliness than ever before. How is this possible?
I feel like these advances—though brilliant at keeping us connected despite the distance between us—have actually added a layer of laziness to our connections. It seems that we have become too reliant on nurturing our connections from a distance through texts, chats and posts. This is breaking down the fabric of what true, deep, meaningful connections really are.
In this video I share about my experience with loneliness and talk more about what deep, meaningful connections truly are.
Deep, meaningful connections with others help to enrich our lives. They help us feel like we’re a part of something bigger. They allow us to share our love and to receive it in return. They are the threads that we weave into our heart’s tapestry.
Now that you’ve watched the video, take a moment to think about your relationships. How often do you schedule in-person time with the people who matter most to you? Are you able to identify the individuals in your life who would say, “When? Where? I’ll be there,” if you reached out for help?
Share in the comments below one person you will schedule time with in the next week to meet in-person to catch up. Your heart and soul will thank you for it.
