Thought For The Day

“We are forgetting how to communicate. Adults are letting “social media” ruin their relationships. Talk to your partner and stop letting inboxes, likes, and retweets ruin what you’re trying to build.” (Tony A. Gaskins Jr.)

“Relationships are harder now because conversations become texting, arguments become phone calls, and feelings become status updates.” (Unknown)

“Technology is a useful servant but a dangerous master.” (Christian Lous Lange)

“Text messaging has also caused problems with social issues in people. Much similar to messaging people online, texts can have the same detachment from reality and in some cases make it hard for people to hold actual conversations face to face.” (Unknown)

“I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots.” (Albert Einstein)

Thought For The Day

Both of today’s quotes are taken from Anthony Venn-Brown’s book, “A Life Of Unlearning – a journey to find the truth.”

“If you are in the closet and fall in love with someone of the same gender, it doesn’t automatically remove the shame and fear that’s kept you locked away. The love you are experiencing encourages you to face the reality that this is who you really are and also has the power to set you free. The richness, beauty and depths of love can only be fully experienced in a climate of complete openness, honesty and vulnerability. Love, the most powerful of human emotions, is calling you to freedom and wholeness.”

“Make no mistake, hiding one’s true self away in a closet and creating a facade of heterosexuality is not without its consequences. It may appear to have a degree of safety but from my experience they are very unhealthy places and do all kinds of terrible things to individuals psychologically, emotionally and behaviourally…..to say nothing of projection. The damage of the fear, shame, guilt and self-loathing that exist inside a closet are often reflected unknowingly in the external life of the individual. In or out of the closet; there is a price to pay. Each individual must weigh up the consequences of honesty, openness, secrecy and deception for themselves. Coming out, for most of us, is like an exorcism that releases us of the darkness we have lived in for years and caused us to believe awful things about ourselves. On the other side of the looking glass are freedom, light and life.”
