Talking To Strangers

When was the last time that you talked to a stranger?

I don’t mean the passing “hi”, or “excuse me” when at the local coffee shop.

I mean, actually had a conversation with someone you don’t know, simply for the sake of having one.

Loneliness is becoming an issue in this modern society of hyper connectedness.

You’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t have a social media app installed on their phone.

Yet, we are becoming a more distant society.

The next time you are out somewhere and in the same spot for more than a few minutes, try starting a conversation with someone.

The first few times you will probably fail miserably.

Though, if you keep going, you will find it easier talk to strangers.

Once you start finding it easier to talk to people you don’t know, they will find it easier to talk to you too.
