Beyond Screens: Navigating a Phone-Driven Society in Pursuit of Simplicity

We heavily depend on phones, and I often contemplate how my mental space would be without one or with a device that promotes depth rather than superficiality.

Considering a phone solely for texting is appealing to me, as the emotional nuances often lost in text can be critical in meaningful conversations. I'm disappointed by the misuse of texting for arguments and personal debates, feeling that in-person discussions offer richer connections.

I wonder if the avoidance of confrontation is a driving force behind these communication trends. Instances where words are twisted against someone are not uncommon, highlighting the varied ways people interpret information.

Phones, with their text-based communication, create opportunities for lies and facades. While they scare me, I acknowledge that my unease may stem from personal mental space considerations.

In my ideal world, devoid of phones, I seek simplicity: financial stability, the ability to travel, freedom from bills, and the joy of growing my own food. Building a house, finding genuine love, and pursuing creative endeavors drive my aspirations. I really am a simple man, I want love and financial stability. It’s all I want.

To live free from the outside world and appreciate the world itself, in/with all of its nature. Phones scare me but people scare me the most.

The ongoing pursuit of comfort motivates me. I admire those who find solace within themselves, and I will channel my envy into positive determination for success through creativity and self-sufficiency.

Communication fascinates me as it is the simplest task for humans but is often the most challenging for others. I question why effective communication, which would allow room for growth, seems elusive. Our hyper-individualized society may contribute to the creation of problems despite our commonalities.

Real and genuine communication, rooted in respect, would minimize hurt and pain. Yet, society's tendency to justify rather than confront emotions reflects a lack of empathy. I believe that anytime negative reactions to openness or negative connotations reveal individuals not worth engaging with.

Our world is fueled by double negatives and standards, creating numerous interpretations for all the numerous ways of thinking. My hope is for readers to consider others' perspectives, fostering empathy and understanding. Put yourself in someone else’s place before acting.

I struggle with self-reflection and I am working towards maintaining a balance. True connections with people who share genuine empathy are vital to my humanity. As I find more appreciation for those who make me feel comfortable with being me.

Overthinking, coupled with empathetic thoughts, intensifies emotions, prompting a need for balance. Just imagine a person with pure empathy who also struggles with overthinking; think of the damages that can be caused.

Improving my communication and prioritizing my self-care without compromising empathy are ongoing goals. I thrive on human affection and touch, which is why I feel more sensitive to lack of consistency with individuals. Spending so much time alone, the want for physical touch is intensified. I do recognize the importance of feeling comfortable with myself, so I am striving for balance in my interactions, and appreciating those who genuinely accept and understand me. Your presence with others can only be genuine when you've first cultivated a genuine presence within yourself.
