We live in age of constants -motion, information , sensory – as far our senses go we are never deprived. We have television, web sites, tablets, smart phones, vibrators, neon signs, 3-D exhibits, food tastings and the ah to keep our senses stimulated and satisfied. Our hearts and our souls are another matter.
A lot of the information we receive is filled with rhetoric or visualizations that claims to ease our pain or make us rich or sexy or get the person of our dreams.
Even those close to us buy this notion – a need for a sphere of influence – sometimes not to help us but to stop
us from growing and thus stop us from leaving them ( as our changing means that they too must change).
The thing is to listen for and watch for their constants -belittling? Competitive? A feeling of remorse after contact – cut these people loose.
