I’ve written about communication before, but it’s still something I struggle with. We want to be heard and we want answers, but people don’t work in our time. They have their ‘stuff’ too.
I think the problem is not the actual lack of communication. It’s that we don’t like to feel ignored when we’re left on “read”. It’s difficult, because I know go from one extreme to the other. I waste a lot of time catching up on all my messages or try to leave my phone is another room and not go on it.
The fact is that we live in a world where we are “active online” most of the time. This is a blessing and a curse. We’re more connected than we’ve ever been in history, but it still sometimes feels like we’re so alone. We don’t want to be ignored. We want to be seen and heard. But that’s sometimes difficult when we feel we can’t tell anyone what’s going on in our heads.
But please talk to someone if you need to. I was struggling last week a bit and didn’t really want to tell anyone. But after getting it off my chest to someone I felt so much better.
Is there someone you can reach out to if you need to?
