The Connection Paradox

I wrote about the paradox of something looking effortless.

Along those lines, I wanted to reflect on the ‘Connection Paradox’. The advent of communication apps and social media platforms has created more connectedness than ever before. There’s a constant dopamine drip.

I feel we’re less connected to those around us. We get a peek into people’s life via updates. But rarely know the struggles, joys, and everyday happening about people.

While these platforms have widely expanded our network, we have far lesser people we actually feel connected to :)
