When was the last time you had a real conversation with a real, live person? With email, Twitter, Facebook, and such, it’s possible that it’s been a long time.
Conversations have give and take. They involve the exchange of ideas and any accompanying emotion. In conversation you can disagree passionately without harming the relationship. That’s not really likely in what passes for conversation today.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m a fan of Facebook and other social sites. I love my email. I’m just concerned that we’ve become a society that talks at people instead of with them.
Face to face is best, but a phone call will work. Reach out to those around you. Engage in real conversation with someone soon.
