Always on

The ability to maintain contact with people all around the world as they face life’s challenges and discover its joys is a wonderful thing. Those who sneer at us using our social tools to rub shoulders virtually don’t understand the sense of being connected that it gives us.

The desire to feel connected is a powerful human need. But there is a downside. We can be overloaded and overwhelmed with all of these connections and sucked into dramas that are not our own. We need to learn our limits and learn to protect ourselves. We need to remember how to walk away and switch off.

As we head towards Christmas, with all the “real world” connections it affords, it will be interesting to see the balance that you all strike! Whatever it is – I hope it makes you happy.
