Does Anyone Really Care Anymore?

Does Anyone Really Care Anymore?

Do you long for the days when people really paid attention to one another during conversation? It seems like nowadays people don’t really give their FULL attention to anything or anyone. You can be having the most in depth conversation and someone always has to take a peak at their cell.  You know what that says to me?  You don’t really care about me. You aren’t really interested in what’s going on in my life. To me, that says you are way more concerned that you are missing out on something instead of really truly being invested in our relationship. This happens with husbands and wives, between best friends, and with co-workers. Seriously? Put the dang phone down.  Give it up for ten minutes. Have a good ole face to face conversation without the distractions and you might find yourself a little more relaxed. I hear people all the time say, ” I never get a minutes peace, this phone is constantly ringing, dinging or vibrating. ”  Well, let me remind you:  YOU decide when people can intrude your personal time. You decide to look at those messages and take time away from the most important people you love. YOU have the power to say it can wait. For those of you who say, ” but what if its my kids or my husband and it’s an emergency?” Well, I’ll share some advice that was given to me not long ago. Give those in your ” Circle of Important People” all the same ring tone. Then you KNOW that you should answer. Until then, lay it down. You’ll be surprised at how your relationships grow and the more work you get done because you’ve limited the number of distractions in your life. Besides that, it’s just RUDE when you pick up the phone in the middle of a conversation.  Don’t be that person. Can you imagine what we are teaching our children?  Think about it. Now watch these cute babies who are totally engaged in one another, notice the eye contact. Notice the connection.  Let’s get back to that.
