I’m writing this post to you dear reader. Yes you, reading this random post that you stumbled upon one searching for the term “Human”, or “Frustration”.
Understanding my fellow men and women that populate this world of 7.7 billion people is something of a mission of mine. Let me tell you why.
I’m a feeler. I’m someone who can gain so much insight into a person quite quickly. If you’re dishonest or have bad motives, I can usually suss you out immediately. If you’re an open and honest and want to connect, I love you immediately. It makes me very happy and enthusiastic.
This is a constant cause of frustration for me. It seems to me that most people I meet put up a barrier, making it impossible to get to know them properly. I’m selective with my friends, I hate small talk. As such, I don’t have many friends. I find it difficult to meet these people in my every day, and it causes me so much frustration.
How do you convince people to make that connection with you? You cannot force it of course. I read an interesting article recently that showed that, if you are more open yourself & not afraid to open up first, you’re more likely to make this connection. I’ve been doing this for 10 years already with limited success.
I’m interested to hear how you make this deep connection with people. Is it time that creates this? Is it luck? Whatever it is, I want to find it to make my life more fulfilling and allow people to be truly, human.
