Thank you so much for your interest in The Insight, by Sheba. I hope you enjoyed this week’s blogs about “The Importance of Human Interaction.”
Next week’s topic will be “The Tools You’ll Need.”
Friday Review: Happy Reading!
- It’s simple, fun, and convenient to be attached to your phone or computer all day. You can communicate with your friends, your employers, and access all sorts of information with a touch of a screen or the click of a mouse. But is convenience worth sacrificing personal, physical interaction with those you love and care for? Turn off the phone and the computer and avoid isolation. Take the time to go for a walk or sit and talk with another person face to face. That sort of interaction helps us to validate our own human experience and reminds us that we’re not alone.
2. Who are You?
- Whether or not you perceive life as a stage, we are performers and as such, our behavior is a choice. Choose to show the real you. It’s okay to show others you are nervous when you’re vulnerable, or giddy when you are elated. The important thing is that you stay true to who you are in any company. Others will respect and trust you because of it.
- Social Interaction is not a new concept. People have been building their people skills and interacting since their first exchange. The one set back is that we have a tendency to get in our own way. If your goal is to engage others, then be receptive and open minded to their needs when communicating.
- Connections are an important part of a satisfying life. We, as human beings, have an innate need for connectedness. Filling that void is essential when life presents challenges. Create an action plan to build and increase the constructs that you feel are lacking in your life. Decide which measures you will take and make them a daily practice.
The Insight: We cannot escape interaction with other people, and we ought not to try. It is beneficial to our well-being to engage in fulfilling relationships. But engagement means that investments are made on both sides. Offer your support and friendship and put your best self forward to create lasting connections.
Have a wonderful weekend!
