The age of 'dis'connnection
The Age of (dis)connection

On the radio this morning it was stated that research has found that people are lonelier than ever before. I was wondering how is this possible in our age of constant connection? Just look how people are constantly connecting and following each other.  People are also becoming more obese despite more written about health and healthy life styles than ever before. It is something of an irony: the more one side of the scale is focused on, the more the other side builds up with the opposite energy.

For me it feels that every day there is another person from somewhere following me; or wants to follow me. Exciting! Or is it?  I feel a bit like the Pied Piper sometimes; and other times like a celebrity. The only question I have is where do I lead all of them (my followers).? What’s the purpose? In the ‘good’ old days one was followed and ‘stalked’ and ‘checked out’ in real life, but now it is all online; always more connections and more followers, masked as friends. All from people on a variety of apps.; too many to name it all here now.

Following each other is not a new thing; Jesus was followed everywhere by his 12 disciples; so the bible tells us. And Vera Lynn sings: “Another day another love”. I feel the same:  Another day another friend request. I have never had so many ‘friends’ and connections ever. And my few close friends are so busy connecting with all their new friends and followers that we hardly have time for each other anymore.

What has become? I remember the days when I was still at school and seeing my best friend all day long at school and then later in the afternoons we will have long telephone conversations, sharing our news for the few hours we haven’t seen each other. Those were the days we still phoned each other. And before that we actually spend real time together; visited each other. The paradox we live in is this:  The more connected we become; the lonelier (and disconnected) we also become. Something similar to the faster we can do things with all our time saving gadgets the less time we actually have.
If you really want to connect again, ‘swim in a different direction’; so to speak. Do things differently.

  • Set time apart to also get away from your gadgets. They can be (dis)connection devices in disguise, if you don’t know how to use them responsibly.
  • Say hello to the neighbour.
  • Go and sit in the park and look at the ducks, dogs, without your phone. No, you don’t have to put it on Facebook and frantically look if anyone has like it or comment on it. Just be present and enjoy the moment.
  • Talk to someone. In your real voice and real words, not texts.
  • Look at your partner or children when they talk to you. Put down your gadgets.
  • Delete some off your apps. You don’t need them all.
And if you need more help because your habit(s) are being driven by a deep seated need for validation and approval; contact me so together we can reprogram your unconscious ‘limiting’ programs.
