Other peoples stuff

When you interact with someone that is in a bad mood or is angry you might find at the end of it that you feel bad too.

That’s what happens when you take on other peoples stuff.

It might seem that when someone directs anger and frustration towards you that you have to take it because what else can you do. But you always have options.

If someone asked you if you wanted to feel bad I’m certain the answer would be no. You have to keep that decisiveness when interacting with someone that’s angry.

When you learn to do that you’re not so effected by how the other person feels because that’s not your stuff and you don’t need to take it on.

More connected than ever

If you want to reach me you can call, text, WhatsApp, dm on Twitter or Instagram and even catch me on FB messenger.

We’re more connected than ever with regard to the countless channels that are available. So how ironic is it that it seems like as a society we’re more alone than ever.

I think it’s something to do with technology being used to replace actually having face to face conversations. As much as technology can imitate and replicate person to person interaction as Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell once sang ‘ain’t nothing like the real thing baby’.

You can go on Twitter and see people interacting all day long but then they’ll tweet about feeling lonely.

I think online connections are great as a supplement but not a replacement. Perhaps we actually need the eye contact, the sound of someone’s voice, the pauses between speech and the sight of another living being.
