I’m just asking because I’m telling everyone I’m okay. But I’m not really, terribly okay.
So yeah, in first world things, I’m okay. Embarrassingly okay. But I miss people. Like, live people not on a screen. I miss hugs and real life conversations and direct eye contact.
I picked two fights at work. One with a customer and one in a Slack queue with my colleagues, and I regret both terribly. They are possibly the first two fights I have ever instigated in my life. Wish I could have hasthtagged those. #firstfightbearwithme
Thing is… It’s not just me. I’m watching people fall apart around me. They are making my fall from grace look insignificant (which puts me in my place). But it it’s an interesting time and place to be a human on the planet. How we grow. How we identify. How we understand.
How can we find strength in this? How can we bond? Grow stronger as people? Face our humanity?
I think we are doing it. In interesting ways. Phone calls from people from the past. Facebook memes. Groups that bond for a cause.
This whole thing is a rough regeneration. Have you cleared your browser cache? Did you plug in and reconnect?
Perhaps this is a reboot to a new era. It’s tough, but maybe a refresh for a bold new future.
I know this post seems to be coming from nowhere, but it’s actually based on some phone calls that are really obscure that came from people from our past.
My friends are international, and I see everyone across the world finding strength and falling apart in equal proportions.
I apologize for rambling. This is a mind dump. I’m just thinking and expressing. Not comments necessary. Just using my blog as a venue for expression. No pics, even…
