It's hard to believe that there was once a time when phones with chords existed and the men who used them wouldn't consider ignoring women like they do today.
Call me old fashioned, but when it comes to communication, I've got standards. I don't answer my phone after 10, and if your intentions are getting to know me over text, chances are you won't be getting to know me.
Something that a lot of people can't seem to understand is that our cell phones and computers are actually taking away an essential part of our emotional process.
It's so easy to interact behind a screen, because it gives us the comfort of not having to face the reality of human interaction. We avoid the burden of feeling. We skip the steps of hearing sorrow in another's voice, or seeing the agony behind one's eyes. How can we possibly abandon these painful interactions when they are the vital lessons of our evolving existence?
Most of us feel as we've solved the riddle by ignoring people, pushing them away as far as we can, because perhaps ignorance is bliss. And it's true, for a while it is. Until the people and the problems we've pushed so far away, come back full circle to face us once, or twice again.
In a generation full of women who are wondering if there are any gentleman left, what does it take to help a person see that they don't have to be afraid to feel? Why is it the moment we think we've found something real, we suddenly experience a lost connection?
