We are all searching for connection, and yet we are all avoiding eye contact.
We are all searching for people who understand, but we close ourselves off before we discover that they can relate to the struggles we try so hard to hide.
We convince the outside world that we are fine, even if we are aching for help, and that is why we don’t get it.
That is why the distance between us and everyone around us widens.
We are all running away from each other, when we should be running towards one another.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I have shared this video couple times. I may share this one hundred more times in coming years. Key & Peele is one of my best stress busters.)
