Good conversation is as stimulating as black coffee and just as hard to sleep after. ∼ Anne Lindbergh
I no longer have the patience or the time to waste on an empty talks or conversations with no real meaning or purpose. I have decided I am not going to waste any of my precious energy on anything else than a real conversation.
Of course, it may seem rude to people at first, and they might not understand it, but if you’re going to talk to me, you better have something to say.
It is not just about us, the people, but the social era we live in. All these networks, Facebook, Instagram, have bombed us with a bunch of information that are just superficial conversations and empty words. But at the end, when we turn off our devices, nothing of what is left is real, and nothing is actually being said.
I am so f*cking tired of all the artificial noise.
I just feel sick of it. I don’t want to fill my mind with stupid and pointless conversations, and I don’t want to get stuck in the system where all of us are talking, but no one is actually saying anything.
We need to start doing things with more depth and get more into everything we do. We need to speak our minds and hearts out. We need to stop pretending to be someone we are not for someone to like us. We need to start being the best and truest version of ourselves.
What is the point of having meaningless conversations? Will they make you a better person?
Well, such behavior and such surrounding leads to death. An early one. A death of the intellect and the real. So in order not to let our thoughts, opinions, and feelings die, we need to stop being afraid and allow ourselves to go deep.
A good conversation can change people’s lives and their beliefs, direction, and opinions. These conversations matter.
And no, we don’t need to make more friends and have more small talks. We need to have more real conversations with the friends we have. We need to make connections; we need to build relationships.
We also need to be more aware of the fact that we are getting older and we are growing up. We need to make ourselves better people with time, and that will only happen if we are surrounded by people with great minds and great abilities to have a real conversation.
We need to step outside of our comfort zones and find the courage to speak up. We need to have well-formed opinions, and be able to state those to other people.
Silence is better than bullsh*t.
When we feel like we don’t know or don’t have anything to say, we should be quiet and don’t say anything. The worst thing is to say whatever comes up on our mind—just to say something. Don’t underestimate the power of silence. Just stop giving the wrong picture of yourself and keep your mouth shut if you don’t have anything to say.
The sooner we realize how valuable a real conversation can be, the better. Talks are cheap, and we need to move on from them. It is then when we will realize how stimulating a good conversation can be. How motivating and helpful these discussions can become. They can even give you a new purpose, or you can find comfort by sharing some other people’s experiences. Once you feel the difference a real conversation can make, you will never go back to the empty talks and wasted time.
To start that process of our lives, we need first to acknowledge and realize that we are more than just shallow people. We are more than empty words and meaningless conversations. We deserve more than nothing. And we should be more than nothing. We should not be scared to go deep and real about our feelings and our true-selves. We don’t know how much we can help others. Even if you help just one person find their meaning in life, you have succeeded.
