Disconnection.

Updated: Jun 21, 2023


Person walking alone in one direction while others go in another. Disconnection.

Disconnection?


The following text, I didn't do research, I didn't look on the internet or in books. Based on what has been happening to me lately.


You know that feeling of frustration that hits you when you have to guess what people are thinking or feeling because they just don't communicate anymore? Yeah, that's an increasingly common reality these days, both at work and in personal life.


The truth is that social networks are changing the way we relate to each other. Instead of talking face-to-face, we instant message, comment on photos, and share memes. And while this can be fun and convenient in many ways, it also has its downsides.


For example, when you need to work as a team, it's critical that everyone is on the same page. But if people aren't communicating openly, it can lead to misunderstandings and mistakes that could have been avoided if they had been discussed openly from the beginning.

The same goes for personal life. If you're in a relationship, it's important that the two of you communicate openly about your feelings and needs.


But if you're always texting and never meet in person, it can be difficult to establish a real, lasting connection.


And that's why I'm so disgusted. Because I feel that we are losing the ability to communicate with each other in a meaningful way. Instead, we're hiding behind our screens and waiting for other people to guess what we're thinking or feeling.


But guessing is not a solution. Guessing leads to mistakes and misunderstandings. Guessing means we're missing out on opportunities to connect with each other on a deeper level.


So what can we do to change that? Well, the first thing is to recognize that communication is key to any successful relationship. If we want to connect with each other in a meaningful way, we need to speak openly and listen carefully.


This means we need to make an effort to have real face-to-face conversations. We need to turn off our phones and really pay attention to what other people are saying. We need to be honest about our feelings and needs and be willing to listen to others' perspectives.


And of course, we need to remember that social media is not a substitute for real communication. They can be fun and useful in many ways, but we cannot rely on them to build meaningful relationships.


So if you're tired of second-guessing what people are thinking or feeling, do something about it. Talk face to face.


Listen carefully. Be honest about your feelings and needs. And remember that communication is key to any successful relationship.
