I think it’s because we can’t seem to find someone, a friend, a person/individual whom we can really relate, connect, and understand each other..in our real life.
To find a similar like-minded individual,
or someone who’s probably undergoing or in the same situation like us..in our real-daily life.
You know..the more I see all the thread posts here, and seeing also the comments by other people, which can actually sometimes even give so much comfort, relief, and even there’s somebody I’ve read that can keep continuing her life, because she probably got encouraged, inspired, and/or helped by the comments posts from others; the more I see & observeÂ all of these,..the more I conclude that how amazing human connection really is!
And this is all still only thru online (hence the often-mentioned phrase I’ve noticed here in this website: “we’re so far,..yet felt so close with each other!”) ..
Just imagine if we’re all able to meet, and know each other IRL (in real life)!
‘cuz there’s just some things, someÂ additional ‘warm’Â thingsÂ that can’t be provided by online interactions. for example: to be able to hug, to pat on each other’s shoulder, to be able to see, hear, and walk together (which involves more of our senses, not only through seeing words on our computer screen).. and obviously thus to be able to relate & share more,..than just by typing words.
I could only imagine how much strength it would probably give to each, and all of us here..
It’s so unfortunate the best people we’ve met can only be met (& ‘encountered’) through online, separated by distances, even countries & continents,..isn’t it?
Perhaps human connection is all we really need….to be able to endure a living.
I just feel that we’re such a lonely souls here… often misunderstood, often judged, often scorned, often got used, often got our trust broken, often betrayed, and many other bad unpleasant things.. which in the end only hurts us and give us such a bleak perspective on the WHOLE humanity & mankind, and sadly, about this Life (that perhaps could be wonderful had we met with souls/individuals/persons we can relate & understand each other,..like here)..
No wonder we often feel hopeless, and want to just stop…living.
HOPE, which I believe is the most essence thing in human’s life, is lost,
and when HOPE is lost,..no wonder we’ve lost any energy to keep on living (“why should we keep living if there’s NO hope left?”).. don’t u think so?
