Let’s stop beating around the bush. When reading certain blogs you can just feel the animosity inside them. The blog writers wonder why the hell they aren’t dating anyone, but really… it comes as no surprise to me. Every other post is about how the opposite sex has wronged them in almost every way imaginable.
Typically I read these blogs and try to offer some helpful tips, boost self-esteem, or offer an alternate approach on something. I guess what really troubles me is some of these writers seldom truly reflect on themselves to make changes. They don’t dive deep enough into their psyche and try and find out why. It makes me wonder how often some bloggers interact with actual humans instead of those staring back at them via their computer monitors. I love blogging and all its greatness, but there’s something to be said for actual human contact/interaction.
If those are the intimate thoughts a blogger shares with Jane Doe reader, can you imagine what must be going through their head during an actual physical encounter? I know the blogosphere is a nice relaxing place to dump your thoughts, observations, stories, pictures, etc. At what point though do you leave it behind, pick up your chin, and approach people with more confidence?
Does blogging have the ability to change a person’s personality or perceptions of the world? Do I really think differently about Australians, Canadians, or teachers now that I’ve been interacting with them for about 30 months? You better believe I do. There’s so much to learn about other cultures, professions, and countries via their thoughts on this shared piece of internet real estate.
Change is good. It can be a scary place to venture outside of one’s comfort zone, but there’s a whole world waiting to be discovered. This is perhaps why I’m most anxious to be a parent. Seeing the world through a child’s eyes will be incredible. It’s similar to when you entertain out-of-town guests in your hometown. It provides a unique opportunity to see the world in their eyes in your city.
Heck, what was the point of this post again? Oh, I think I’m simply trying to encourage people, myself included, to try new things. Don’t dwell on issues (such as dating, jobs, weather) for too long; vent and move on. By the way, I will be in my office should you need me.
