kind of a big deal/grok/understanding.. be\cause this:
love the explanation in this video (shared on fb by erica) at 2 min:
we’re sacrificing conversation for mere connection..
so what is the problem in having a conversation – well ..
it takes place in real time and you can’t control what you’re going to say..
there’s no editing ourselves.. in order to present ourselves… we are in the raw, in the vulnerability of context.. swimming in and embracing uncertainty..
if we’re not able to be alone… we’re only going to know.. how to be lonely..
talk to self. talk to others.
and a commenter on erica’s post suggests:
true connection happens when there are no distractions.
getting into echo/anechoic chamber ness.. and the ability to remain authentic while attaching.. ness
We didn’t have to talk then, and that is real friendship. Never uncomfortable with silence, which, in its welcome form, is yet an extension of conversation.
