Confidence

Confidence to communicate

Some say we have unprecedented communication.

Some say we have more friends than ever before.

Some say we are linked to people across the globe in numbers unseen previously.

I say we are loosing touch with other.

When I see teenagers chatting to each other in the same room, but over Viber or WhatsApp, when I hear that young people would rather text than talk face to face, when I hear that students avoid interviews because they would mean being judged at a real and personal level, it scares me. What is happening to our communication? What is going to become the norm in 20 years time? How many people will still use their mouths to speak and how many will only use their fingers? Even deaf people communicate visually.

Have the confidence to SPEAK to each other. Have the courage to ask a stranger a question and listen to the answer. Experience the JOY of touching someone both physically and emotionally at the same time. Though much can be learned on the internet, relationships cannot. Communication cannot. Life cannot.
