Difficulties in connecting with other people

Difficulties in connecting with other people

Even tough we are today living in a world where everybody is virtually connected to everybody, there seems to be a serious issue with people actually succeeding to connect with each other.

The reason why this is happening is quite simple: individuals who have trust issues and who do not love themselves find it difficult to openly express their feelings. And, while social media is full of people who have a great amount of likes and followers, real friendships are becoming more and more rare.

You may feel like you are continually failing at your job, but that would be wrong. It is more likely that your manager is bad at delegating.

Venting At The Office

Due to the stress accumulation, many team members and managers vent out in their daily team meetings. Whether it’s work problems, family struggle, or mental health, they find it therapeutic to unload it to others.

This kind of venting, however, can be stressful for others, especially if they are being forced to listen. Negative ranting wears down the listener and uses up the emotional bandwidth, making them anxious.

Feeling Guilty For Shopping

As shopping for non-essentials becomes a luxury, our old habits of ordering whatever we want, whenever we feel like ordering, is now making many of us feel guilty.
Brands are eager to restart the economy and are putting on great deals for us, and many crippled businesses might need our support too.
