Yesterday I got on a train, something I needed to do because I had an important hospital appointment. It was quite an ordinary train journey regardless of the weather being a bit odd. It was kind of sunny, but then really cold.
This isn’t the remarkable thing about that train journey though. I suddenly came to a realisation that people are really unfriendly, like remarkably unfriendly. I have no idea whether it is a generational thing or just the type of people that live in the area that I have to live, but its odd.
Why are people so closed off? Is it technology? Is technology something to blame? Thats what we tend to do though, as humans, we blame others, we give in to our narcissistic urges to please only ourselves and we are getting worse.
We are electing narcissists into power and promoting narcissists into high power roles. They are the people choosing what news we are fed, what we watch and read and judge other people on.
It’s not that i’m against the establishments or anything, because that would trigger people to think of me as crazy. No, I just want people to be friendlier. I mean, sometimes i fear that one day I will fall down and nobody will help me, that i will be left, and even thought thousands will go by me in a busy street, they will be too obsessed with the consumption of vapid media and unnecessary evil news. It’s sad, and it needs to change.
Talk to people more. Remember we are human and we possess the amazing ability to speak to each other. We are all alone at some point in our lives, no matter how popular we think we are. Popularity is an odd thing because even the most followed people on social media feel like they are alone, that they are shut out from the society around them. Don’t you agree?
