“I have 422 friends, yet I am lonely.
I speak to all of them every day, yet none of them really know me.”
Luckily, I only have 391 friends on my Facebook network.
• Having a chance to watch again this video by Gary Turk which was really inspire me a lots years ago, I would like to re-share it here in my own digital world – where we are heard but not seen, we type and don’t talk, we read as we chat, we spend hours together without making eye contact; a world of self-interest, self-image, self-promotion, where we share all our best bits, but leave out the emotion.
• Nothing worth having comes easy and it seems to be the same as the way we build up our connections nowadays: Because we live in a world where everything is available to us almost instantaneously: Tiki delivers only in 2 hours, we can binge watch a series on Netflix without waiting week by week, even have a date by using only one swipe on Tinder without any letter been sent – We’re impatient with those things taking time like developing intimate relationships.
• I believe in this perspective, that’s why, mostly every time I ask for a cup of coffee to make new friends literally – People would usually reply kinda: “what do you actually want ?” so then, I have to send an introduction message, just to say: I want to be your friend TRULY & HONESTLY only.
• It’s funny but true.
