If you’ve noticed how people communicate to each other these days, then you know that it has become alarmingly easy to get your point across without meeting face to face or even hearing the other person’s voice. You may have also noticed that your group of friends and family are slowly drifting apart because of this technological phenomenon. People think they are communicating more, but it is all surface level stuff that is slowing pulling us apart from one another. So this year, be sure to send out some birthday invitations in the mail for the ones you love and throw them a party that requires the guests to actually RSVP.
It may seem like a foreign way to bring people together for us young people, but it’s a valuable tool to keep us from drifting apart and conversing in short, stunted text messages and terribly constructed emails. If you think that many of the people who are close to you are becoming more and more distant, then this year, you should do something about it. Visiting a long time friend who’s out of state and actually seeing them in person is a great feeling that many of us have forgotten. Throwing your best friend a bridal shower with real bridal shower invitations will give you that feeling too. Whatever you do this year, make sure it will touch the hearts and minds of everyone you care about.
