Do you get that feeling sometimes where you are like where is everybody? Why am i not seeing anybody lately? Why havent i heard from people? Is it just me? This is something i have been really struggling with lately: feeling lonely. You know like Britney sings the kind that can feel like it´s killing you. I feel that in the world we live in today where “selfishness” constantly gets encouraged and stimulated especially in the social media where its all about me, myself and i and taking SELFies we aren’t encouraged really to think of togetherness. Of how important it is to connect, to reach out, to call a friend, text a friend, show those you care for that you do love them. Because even those who come across like strong, independent, I can totally take care of myself and i don’t need anybody else type individuals (sounds familiar?) also need to feel loved, to feel acknowledged. Everybody needs that.
I am always the initiator, the connector, bringing people together and i love that, its in my nature to look after others, to look out for others but that doesn’t mean that i don’t appreciate it when tables turn. When people call me, or text me, or invite me over for dinner which hardly ever happens. So this is a request to those who consider me your friend, please reach out more, i would appreciate it so much. This is also a request to every single selfie taker out there, to every self who exists in this world remember that we need other people. To gather together is what my dear teacher Sharon Gannon calls it. To. Gather. Together. Because it takes two. We could have so much fun, but it takes more then one. (Alan Watts)
Nothing feels more empowering then the coming together of people who are on the same frequency, who have the same mindset, who make you laugh, who make you cry, who lift you and your spirits up. That is the kind of togetherness i am talking about. Look out for each other. Look after each other. Reach out for each other. Because in my opinion friendship is a plant which needs to be watered, which needs to be fed or it will die, simple analogy but that is what it is. And even to strangers those we don’t know we could be so much kinder, we could be so much more compassionate, we could be so much more together. I strive to make this world a better place not just for me but for ALL beings on this planet, that i hope to do TOGETHER with all of you, who is with me?
