In a world where texting and online dating and Facebook are taking over social communication, do you really know the person you are sitting next to or
living with? Do you have any close friends, or any commitment in your relationships?
When you are on an online dating site, and texting someone nonstop, never willing to meet, or talking to everyone at once, and you meet up with your
date while texting other guys or girls or whatever it is, how are you going to get what you are searching for if it is right in front of you but you
are too distracted wanting things that aren't?
If you are on Facebook searching out friends, or texting people, but meanwhile there is someone right next to you to interact with in person - how are
you ever going to accomplish this if it is right in front of you but you keep on getting distracted by things that aren't?
So we come back to communication. In order to build a real friendship or relationship, it involves knowing how to socialize in person, it involves
spending time with the other person, it involves focusing on them and them alone.
Only by doing this, can you get to know someone, and only by getting to know someone, can you move on to more.
In a world where each of us is involved in our own little universes, we can be sitting next to someone and never know anything about them.
But how can you NOT know about the people you are living with or sitting next to? This is ridiculous! If there is a problem, and your friend or
significant other and you are not talking, this is ridiculous! If you don't know what is going on with your friend or significant other, or you
haven't talked to them about what is going on with you, this is ridiculous!
Only by bringing out these issues and getting to know each other, can the two of you trust each other and move on to better things!
There is no excuse for silence.
P.S. If you are fine with your situation, you are fine with it, and that is okay! This is just advice for people who might feel something is lacking.
Also, focus can be used when hanging out online or whatever as well!
