Does the recent rise in social media cause you to struggle with in-person connections? 

“In today’s technologically driven world, it seems we’re constantly plugged in, turned on, and connected to others in our neighborhoods and around the world. But are we? Ask almost anyone if they truly feel connected to others, and the answer is likely to be hazy at best.

Why is that? Perhaps it’s as simple as this: Those polished pictures and self-edited posts just don’t feel real.

We are social beings who need genuine connection — not just any connection. Pings, likes, and tweets aside, social media just doesn’t feel authentic to most of us. We need more.”
