  I have 422 friends, yet I am lonely. I speak to all of them every day, yet none of them reallyknow me.


  The problem I have sits in the spaces between, looking into their eyes, or at a name on ascreen.


  I took a step back, and opened my eyes, I looked around, and then realised that this media wecall social, is anything but when we open our computers, and it's our doors we shut.


  All this technology we have, it's just an illusion, community companionship, a sense ofinclusion,


  yet when you step away from this device of delusion, you awaken to see, a world ofconfusion.


  A world where we're slaves to the technology we mastered, where our information gets sold bysome rich greedy bastard.


  A world of self-interest, self-image, self-promotion, where we share all our best bits, but leaveout the emotion.


  We are at our most happy with an experience we share, but is it the same if no one is there?


  Be there for you friends, and they'll be there too, but no one will be, if a group message will do.


  We edit and exaggerate, we crave adulation, we pretend we don't notice the socialisolation.


  We put our words into order, until our lives are glistening, we don't even know if anyone islistening.


  Being alone isn't the problem, let me just emphasize, that if you read a book, paint a picture,or do some exercise, you are being productive, and present,


  not reserved or recluse, you're being awake and attentive, and putting your time to gooduse.


  So when you're in public, and you start to feel alone, put your hands behind your head, andstep away from the phone.


  You don't need to stare at your menu, or at your contact list, just talk to one another, andlearn to co-exist.


  I can't stand to hear the silence, of a busy commuter train, when no one wants to talkthrough the fear of looking insane.


  We're becoming unsocial, it no longer satisfies to engage with one another, and look intosomeone's eyes.


  We're surrounded by children, who since they were born, watch us living like robots, and thinkit's the norm.


  It's not very likely you will make world's greatest dad, if you can't entertain a child without ausing an iPad.


  When I was a child, I would never be home, I'd be out with my friends, on our bikes we wouldroam.


  We'd ware holes in our trainers, and graze up our knees; we'd build our own clubhouse, highup in the trees.


  Now the parks are so quiet, it gives me a chill to see no children outside and the swings hangingstill.


  There's no skipping or hopscotch, no church and no steeple, we're a generation of idiots, smartphones and dumb people.


  So look up from your phone, shut down that display, take in your surroundings, and make the most of today.


  Just one real connection is all it can take, to show you the difference that being there can make.


  Be there in the moment, when she gives you the look, that you remember forever, as when love overtook.


  The time you first hold her hand, or first kiss her lips, the time you first disagree, but still love her to bits.


  The time you don't need to tell hundreds, about what you've just done, because you want to share the moment, with just this one.


  The time you sell your computer, so you can buy a ring, for the girl of your dreams, who is now the real thing.


  The time you want to start a family, and the moment when, you first hold your little girl, and get to fall in love again.


  The time she keeps you up at night, and all you want is rest, and the time you wipe away the tears, as your baby flees the nest.


  The time your baby girl returns, with a boy for you to hold, and the time he calls you granddad, and makes you feel real old.


  The time you take in all you've made, just by giving life attention, and how your glad you didn't waste it, by looking down at some invention.


  The time you hold your wife's hand, and sit down beside her bed you tell her that you love her, and lay a kiss upon her head.


  She then whispers to you quietly, as her heart gives a final beat, that she's lucky she got stopped, by that lost boy in the street.


  But none of these times ever happened, you never had any of this, When you're too busy looking down, you don't see the chances you miss.


  So look up from your phone, shut down those displays, we have a finite existence, a set number of days.


  Don't waste all our time getting caught in the net, as when the end comes, nothing's worse than regrets.


  I am guilty too, of being part of this machine, this digital world, where we are heard but not seen.


  Where we type as we talk, and we read as we chat, where we spend hours together, without making eye contact.


  Don't give in to a life where you follow the hype, give people your love, don't give them your like.


  Disconnect from the need to be heard and defined. Go out into the world, leave distractions behind.


  Look up from your phone, shut down that display, stop watching this video, live life the real way.



  The furthest distance in the world


  The furthest distance in the world


  Is not between life and death


  But when I stand in front of you

  而是 我就站在你面前

  Yet you don't know that I love you


  The furthest distance in the world


  Is not when I stand in front of you

  不是 我就站在你面前

  Yet you can't see my love


  But when undoubtedly knowing the love from both

  而是 明明知道彼此相爱

  Yet cannot be together


  The furthest distance in the world


  Is not being apart while being in love

  不是 明明知道彼此相爱 却不能在一起

  But when painly cannot resist the yearning

  而是 明明无法抵挡这股思念

  Yet pretending you have never been in my heart


  The furthest distance in the world


  Is not when painly cannot resist the yearning

  不是 明明无法抵挡这股思念

  yet pretending you have never been in my heart


  but using one's indifferent heart

  而是 用自己冷漠的心对爱你的人

  To dig an uncrossable river


  For the one who loves you



  The little words that work marriage magic - Spike

  创造婚姻奇迹的小字眼 - 斯派克

  Using terms of endearment like honey or sweetheart from time to time is a small but important way to keep a marriage loving.


  These terms make the other person feel loved and special. There are some other words that can help make your spouse feel special and aware of how much you love and appreciate him.


  "Thank you." We would not never thank a friend or co-worker for helping us out.


  But sometimes we forget to thank the person who we love most: our spouse. All couples forget now and then to thank each other for all they do. But thanking each other is a good habit to fall into because gratitude is necessary for the growth of love.


  Knowing that their actions are appreciated makes a couple more giving toward each other, and the more you give to each other the more your love will grow.


  "Please." Please, like thank you, is easy to forget to say, but it too is very important in a relationship. Because it is another way of letting your partner know you don't take him for granted and that his time and effort count.


  "You are great." Do you know that this sentence can make him feel good about himself all day? Now that you know how nice it makes him feel to be complimented, you should try to do it as often as you can.


  As an added bonus, he will begin paying compliments to you more often. This is not surprising since, experts, say, compliments are a two-way street.


  So the more compliments you give, the more you get. Often couples will think nice things about each other but not verbalize their thoughts because they're just not in the habit of doing so. But when one of them starts, the other will pick up on the cue and begin doing the same.


  "I love you." in a new way a small variation such as "I love you more each day" can make a big difference in how you feel about each other.


  When you say "I love you" the exact same way over and over, your spouse may start to discount it.


  On the other hand, a fresh phrase can help keep the relationship fresh.


  For instance, you can express your love for him by saying "I'm so glad you're in my life." I'm sure he will be really impressed and touched, and you two will feel closer.
