Behind the Text
In today's world, it's so easy to text vs. pick up the phone and have a conversation. Why are we a society that craves social media likes, gaining more followers vs. a voice-to-voice?
Then the pandemic hit, people became angry with the restriction imposed. I am guilty as well of texting vs. picking up the phone.
Now there was a need for human touch, feelings, contact.
My frustration is when I have to text a long conversation with someone when it is so much easier to pick up the phone, so I would stop texting and call.
I love hearing the voices of family and friends.
Speaking with that special someone, hear their voice.
I crave it every single day.
Am not sure they understand what pain and trauma I endured for the 2 1/2 years?
A prisoner to a ding on notification on the phone the source of the connection.
How do I reach the heart of a text?
How do I explain the rare emotions?
There are so many people I wish I could speak with on the phone who are no longer alive.
Have we become our own worse nightmare?
