How Technology Makes Us Appear to Care Less, Not More
Because communicating by electronic media is a skill all its very own we are more likely to get a wrong than get it right. Because communication is an art heralded so often by the wisdom of hindsight, putting another barrier before relatedness, as in technology, will not help. Many times we use technology wrongly or haphazardly, and then we can appear to care less than we actually do.
What We Want Most From Others – But Often Don’t Get
Certain things cannot be communicated via e-mail or chat or text message. Human communication, especially conflict, is more intricate than that. We cannot expect technology to replace character. What human beings need most of all is to relate with other human beings.
When Giving Is Not Giving
Have you ever woken up to find yourself in an intimate relationship where you knew you loved your partner very deeply but realized you were emotionally tired, spiritually drained and mentally confused? Where you questioned whether your partner really loved you for who you are and not for what you can give to them?
Why Some People Are Doubtful and Others Are Confident
Have you ever spent time with a person who doubted nearly everything they did or how about a person who is confident in their speech or actions? What if they grew up in the same household yet there this huge difference between the two of them? How can this be?
Why Some People Never Learn to Trust Others
Have you ever wondered why some people cannot seem to trust anyone? Maybe you are married to someone who despite all of your positive efforts of encouragement still struggles with being able to trust you. Maybe you have a friend who automatically distrusts everyone they come in contact with including supposed safe categories of people such as the police or a pastor. Or maybe you have a child who mistrusts everything you say. Regardless of any positive outcomes, they remain steadfast in mistrust.
