Mutual UnderstandingsI feel like no one is willing to put in the time to get to know anyone anymore.
I feel as though I am going to search the earth until my dying day looking for someone who understands the difference between knowing a persons name; and knowing their soul.
I want to meet someone who wants to get to know my heart and soul, not just my face and my body.
It's a very lonely world when people seem uninterested in making any effort beyond, 'Hi, what's your name?" or "What's your favorite color?" and of course, "How old are you?"
Where are the real questions??
"If you had a choice between saving a child from a burning house or killing a man who would eventually be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of people (including women and children) which would you choose?" (stereotypical example provided for the sake of argument)
I want to know a persons heart, to know how strong their resolve is and how set-in-their-ways they are. I want to know a persons true colors and see them for who they really are; and then I want to shake their hand and tell them how sincerely happy I am to have met them.
I feel like either no one is willing to make the effort, or they're just incapable of understanding me.
Maybe that sounds conceited, but that's really the reason I feel that no one knows me.
