How many new people are you meeting each day? Do you make an attempt to interact with people and have even brief conversations that might lead to a deeper friendship or can just put a smile on someone’s face? It seems like society is getting more and more insular, replacing face-to-face interaction with electronic communication. This may be an excellent way to interact with a wider variety of people with no limits geographically. However there is something special about in person communication where you can fully exchange energy, and the warmth of your smile and personality can melt the ice of even the most guarded human being.
Simple trips to the grocery store can be an adventure in creating conversations. When you go to parties and networking events, do you tend to look for your friends and gravitate toward like-minded people or do you seek out strangers and try to create a conversation with them? Many people are experiencing isolation and loneliness to varying degrees. You have the potential to break down walls of separation and create a bridge to allow people to expand their consciousness if you will have the courage to reach out and touch the lives of strangers.
