Under the Surface:
The interesting thing about building up layers and scratching back into the subsequent layers is the discovery of what is underneath. The same holds true about humans -the older we get the more layers we have built up. Layers of experience, wisdom, stories, hardship etc.
I find in today’s society more than ever people live on the surface, few people seem really interested in scratching below the first layer or two to get to know someone. I think we are missing out on a lot by not having deeper meaningful conversations. I have always detested cocktail talk and discover along time ago that I was not made of the right stuff to be a high society type of wife hanging out, looking chic and making small talk.
Is social media to blame, our busy lives – not having time, being self centered, mixed up priorities, has it become all about me, stuff and money? Well I don’t have the answers just the questions!
I do think is that we are missing the boat and it is time to come out of our cocoons and make a concerted effort to get to know someone, to take a real genuine interest in them. One thing I can guarantee you- it will enrich your life. I challenge you to dig below the surface, to start a genuine meaningful conversation with someone. You might be surprised about what you learn.
