As humans, we want to be acknowledged, wanted and needed. What is wrong with feeling this way. We are interactive creatures who need to be cared for and loved.
Women tend to crave more affection and love than men generally, however, men need to be acknowledged in special ways too.
Interaction is such a large part of what we need as humans. Without interaction and communication we would simply exist. These are ways we learn about each other and teach children how to care about one another. How Else would they know how to start out in life but they didn’t know they could approach other people, friends and relatives who paid attention to them? While interaction in our culture has changed in recent years due to technology I still believe that there’s a good portion of parents and teachers pastors and others in positions where they can communicate with others that still make it a point to explain things to people. In my opinion it is part of their profession to clarify things for people so they are understood.
Imagine with me for a moment, not knowing if you could walk up to talk to someone or wave at them but constantly being paranoid about what you should do when you see someone. No one wanted superior stuck up and our culture has taught us it’s okay to way even when you don’t know someone provided you’re an adult. Our children look to us for ways to live to communicate with their friends family and their teachers.
I know there are some proponents of the internet and cell phones and some opponents of them. I for a long time, was an opponent of cell phones with teenagers. I believed that a stop them from talking to people because they could always be other gadgets and not come out and talk. However, I have decided the cell phones have furthered our communications. They encourage communication across the miles with people that we can’t talk to you on the phone because it is expensive to have a long phone call. There are places such as Facebook where people share freely nose and recipes and things that relatives pick up in Friendswood and it goes for miles and I think it’s wonderful communication so I stand corrected.
If used correctly you could make someone understand that you care about though just by calling them on your cell phone or texting them and the words I’m so over express that you care. Someone who might not answer their phone because they’re busy or overwhelmed with the situation might see your text later and respond to it. I think this is wonderful.
I think that the cell phone has bridged gaps but span across the entire country. One such example would be my sister who is married to a man for Morocco which is in Africa, her husband can talk to his family in Morocco daily by phone or by computer. To me this is simply a miracle. My sister’s mother-in-law I recently had a stroke and she is here in America the rest of her family is in Morocco. Our social media made it possible for them to see her and her hospital room and to communicate with her in ways that would’ve been thought of years ago.
I am encouraged that was started out as games and stuff like that seems to have advanced to get people to communicate more with the cell phone I know it has influenced my life. And I am not a football person I’m a text person.
Sometimes hearing a person’s voice of someone you know can directly bridge the gap of loneliness and socialize again. I am so thankful for this.
A few thoughts on a beautiful fall day!!
