Five Minute Friday: Lonely

After a few weeks off from it, I'm getting back with Five Minute Friday over at Lisa-Jo Baker's blog. Five minutes of writing what comes. No editing or overthinking it this time. Today's word is "lonely."

Sometimes I wonder if the way our lives have changed have made us lonely.

We text.

We Facebook.

We email.

We tweet.

But when do we actually sit down across from each other and talk?

In our instant communication, we have stopped going deeper with one another.

But, the truth is we were made for community. We were made to really know each other. We were made to allow people to know who we really are.

So, by choosing to stay with instant communication, I wonder if we're missing something. And I think that explains why people are so lonely these days. We don't have the connection we need, and so we feel lonely.

We feel lonely because this isn't how we were made to live.

When was the last time you sat down with a friend and really talked about how you are both doing?
