Sometimes I feel lost, pointlessly searching for answers to questions, which do not seem to matter anymore. Life has become a constant routine, measured by an individuals level of motivation, but governed by who you know. One moment everything is as it should be, life going the way it was intended. In the next breath, it is as if everything matters all at once, and everything must all be figured out NOW.

There are other times where I find myself just watching, observing, almost imagining what it would be like to be someone else. Watching how other people are making it through life. Picking someone out of a crowd, creating a whole fictional story, in my head, to go along with this person. Seeing the hurt in their eyes, the stress weighing on their shoulders, or even just observing the way they carry themselves. It is an easy temptation to fall into. How it must feel to own a certain object we do not already have. Longing to to have the body figure we have always wanted. Everyone always wants what they do not have, right? It is easy to forget how to live in your own skin. 

I fear for the world we live in now, everyone is so isolated from each other. Does any one on this planet even remember there is such a thing as a human race? There are other individuals with their own lives, thoughts, needs, desires, and opinions which we coexist with on this planet. Maybe our ideas and beliefs do not agree with someone else’s, but that does not mean they are wrong. Agree to disagree then move on. A big part of this problem, I believe, is technology. It has taken over such a big role in our everyday lives. Friendship is only requesting over social media. Forget about hanging out with friends. Walk in to any restaurant, almost everyone is on their cell phone. When did we decide that we would rather look at a screen, than have actual contact with another person?

  1. Great post! I agree with your concerns about technology and the demise of the ability to agree to disagree. One of the themes in my upcoming book “The Good Stuff” is the danger of prioritizing a perfect image over what is real , and how social media can actually be isolating.
