Relationships aren’t what they used to be. I grew up in a family that talked during dinner and shared stories throughout the day. We did family time and alone time. We used our alone time as a reflection of our day, our lives, or to do something for ourselves. Family time was just that, family time. For example we would go camping. During our camping trips we would spend time around the fire, out on the boat or swimming as a whole. But we also had times where the adults hung out and talked over a couple beverages and us kids ran amuck.
Over the years and through my own relationships (as well as observing others) I have found that most relationships don’t contain family time, kid time or adult time and if they do…its a once in a blue moon thing. Most people these days are just off doing their own thing. No regard for their significant other or children. Hell they don’t even take the time to get to know their significant other or children anymore.
In this day and age of electronic devices and social media, we have become too dependant on having a relationship with our friends and family via social media instead of actually going out and seeing them in person. And if, on the rare occasion, friends or family meet up….theres no real conversation.
What happened to building relationships, having personal jokes, keeping secrets and enjoying the physical company of another human being?!
TALK TO EACHOTHER PEOPLE! Learn something about someone else today! Disconnect from the electronic world…..love and love properly, not from afar.
