Human connection


The Internet has brought the world together yet is creating a wider gap of social interaction like never before. That's right, social networking is making us less social in the sense of personable interactions. With the growing number of networks and way to stay 'connected' what is getting lost is the true purpose on communication with others.
 
For this Eid, It’s important to take yourself away from your technology once in a while, putting away your phone and simply sitting down for coffee with a friend without distractions. Basic communication skills like eye contact and a listening ear are vital in forming bonds with other people and something we should continue to cultivate, despite the changing times with new media replacing what was once commonplace interaction. 
 
Maybe we should think about what we’re losing – the social skills that help us establish trust and understanding with our fellow human beings, and rediscovering those quality conversations. 
 
When you “unplug” yourself from the web of technology, even if for a short amount of time, there is much to be learned from simply talking to others and keeping the human aspect of communication alive. Never forget the foundation of human interaction, which involves the bare bones of creating a relationship with the other person. 
 
In the meantime, spend a little deliberate time connecting with friends and family the old-fashioned way. You know—without the text-lingo, the friend requests, and the inflatable vest
 
Note:- To all my friend out there "Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir & Batin"
