I think something we all have to wrestle with is the desire to seek attention. It’s in short supply so we have to compete with each other to demonstrate our status. We have only have to look at our Instagram feeds, Facebook profiles and Tweets to see this.
How long do we spend crafting our images and online personas?
The problem is that no amount of attention will satisfy the hole inside. The desire to be loved, feel safe and belong cannot be filled with attention.
It’s a race to the bottom. There will always be someone who tries something else to get more attention.
We need to stop and ask ourselves the question: what are we seeking?
