People invest so much time into being seen, heard, discovered.
We create email accounts, make ourselves available through our phone and social media accounts. We think and rethink our cover letters, status updates, tweets, and photo captions. So much energy and thought going into being understood and loved.
And then there is the countless missed connections. Emails we forget to reply to. Personal reminders gone lost. Plans made with friends we drop the ball on.
The amount of effort put into making connections, compared to the amount of effort lost in the potential connections is huge. But why? Are we afraid? Are we lazy? Where does that desire to be loved go?
