Real Joy Comes from Real Togetherness
you. Even if our friends stay within the same city, we prefer to connect with them over a online channel. And if we do meet up once in a blue moon, most of the time is taken up by clicking selfies and updating them on social media.
On the other hand, being together with people can be fun. Whether it is just sharing jokes/stories or even working towards realizing a common objective, human interaction is stimulating and makes up feel upbeat. One ends up making new friends, discovering a mentor or an agony aunt and in case one is truly lucky, even a soulmate. Also, we much more stronger when we knows that there is someone to lend a shoulder during the difficult times.
Unlike the virtual world where people try to project a very different image of themselves, real world interaction are much more genuine. One finds it easy to accept people with their faults and all.
Children who grow up in an environment that fosters togetherness turn out to be happier and balanced individuals. It fosters tolerance and makes them more open to people, places and situation that are different from what they encounter in everyday life. Ultimately it is these kids who will inherit the earth and hence imbibing them with the virtues of togetherness will only help make the world and better and happier place.
