Too often, we take what gets offered to us at face-value. And have little or no time to pause and reflect on what’s underneath.
Read time: about 1 min 3 sec.
Hopping from one tweet to another, from one headline to another, has made us surfers in the endless waves of interactions where those information doesn’t sink in.
Words seem to have also lost their meaning in the world of chatter. There’s probably something hidden, something much deeper that tend to get lost in the filters and noise around us.
Maybe we need to think a bit.
There is some truth hidden when someone says, “I was only kidding.”
There is some feeling hidden when someone says, “I don’t care.”
Some are probably hurt when someone says, “It’s okay.”
There is a desperate call for help when someone says, “Leave me alone.”
There is some fear hidden when someone says, “I am not sure.”
There is some deep sadness lying beneath when someone is quiet.
Next time when someone dear to you says something like this, then take a moment to zoom into those words – perhaps hidden maybe a cry for help, a longing for a hug, a desire for a company to share some feelings or be there for support.
We are quick to click the links to take us to the next news, new deals, or what others who are not part of our lives are doing. Remember to double-click on the link that binds us together as human beings.
Maybe once in a while, we need to dive a bit deeper. You never know what you may find.
Thank you for sharing some of your precious time with me each week.
Until next week.
