STRIVING FOR AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIPS

4 Jan

ImageI have come to the conclusion that many of my interactions with people are not authentic. In my professional and personal life, I find my self not feeling like I cannot be real with people.  Why? I am still trying to figure out why. One of my conclusions, is that I have a traditional viewpoint of relationships. In our world today, social media has become the center of many of my interactions. Sometimes, I feel forced to participate in social media to maintain the friendships that I have. I realize very few of my contacts call me and ask me how I am doing. I reached a point where I am trying to step away from one sided relationships where I have to be the first one to call, text, email and etc. I want to feel as if someone is striving to maintain a relationship with me and me not being the only one trying to  maintain a relationship with others.

    I know exactly how you feel. I’m in a long-distance relationship though and all of the social media helps us keep our relationship online, especially Skype. I miss writing and sending actual letters instead of e-mails. It makes things so much more personal

      Hello,

      I feel the same way. Our society has moved away from face to face communication to online communication. I do not really like it. However, I do believe there are people our there who appreciate traditional forms of communication.
