Loneliness is one of the scourges of he modern era. Whether you live in Wales or Algeria it matters not. Despite all the changes brought about by social media there remains a huge gap of real one to one contact that is any more than superficial.
It is the superficiality of the great mass of social media that is doing the harm. Rather then allowing individuals to make meaningful trustworthy contacts it is often doing the opposite. Luring people of all groups and ages into superficial avenues they really don’t want to enter. But they do. And by following these traits their lives are devalued rather than enhanced.
I’d like to try to start some group conversations where, whoever you are, you maybe, will meet a decent friend, who will share with you his/her day to day interests and cares.
I must confess to having no idea how to proceed. I know what I don’t want. I don’t want to be an influencer with a marketing tag, I do not want to be an agony aunt, I do not want to be a political commentator.
I know to a limited degree what I do want. I want to be a catalyst for those who are lonely to find a friend, I want to spark new interests to lonely unstimulated minds, I want you to be interested in others for their sake as well as yours.
If you have any knowledge how to help me do even a little piece of this please write to me. If you want a chat, or want to start a journey to you know not where, give me a shout.
I know I am luckier than most, I am older than most, happier than many, better off than most.. Never mind these handicaps, get in touch.
