MPL Episode 14: My Thoughts on Building Strong Connections and Friends in Today's Digital Environment

Greetings listeners,

I hope the weather is enjoyable where you are. For those who are having less than pleasant weather, please be safe, and keep yourselves as cool as possible. The summer will be over soon. 🙂

This episode is going to be more deep and reflective than most, but I hope you will enjoy it. I feel so disconnected in our digitally-connected world because people fail to grasp the meaning of real human contact these days. In this episode, I share my thoughts about the way we’re connecting as a planet, with people in general, and while building and maintaining deep friendships. The subjects can get heavy at times, but the episode is about 50 minutes of deep discussion. I’d love for you guys to offer your input. All comments are welcome. Let me know what you think. Do you still feel connected to others in this world where internet connectivity has become too easy a pass time to resist?

For those interested, I share a few interesting thoughts and findings from a very quick google search. Here are the links to the materials mentioned.

On Point: The episode from December 2022 that delves into the important question, “Why are Americans Spending Less Time with Friends?”

For those curious about how people’s personality has changed due to the pandemic, as I do believe this was still a significant contributor to the way people interact with one another in person,

Well, that’s going to do it for today’s episode. I really hope you enjoy it. Please don’t forget to send me your thoughts. Take care, and if you need someone to talk to, please get in touch. I know I’m very much an advocate for in-person connections, but if the internet is here to stay, we might as well use it for the greater good. I love meeting new people and interacting with them, even if it is in a virtual space. Please be safe, never hesitate to contact me if there are questions or concerns, and have a wonderful, fantabulous day. 🙂

Share and Enjoy !
