You might wonder what do my headphones have to do with the title of this post. Well, not much really (aside from making me feel a kid again of course) but they are likely the reason why a lady just greeted me on the street a few minutes ago. She had some headphones too and obviously this thing in common triggered something.
How many times did you go for a jog, cycle or just walked your dog and met some people on the street doing the same as you?
What were your first thoughts and what did you do?
Isn’t it funny to see how we are so “educated” by society in living in our comfort zone, often reducing interactions with a stranger to minimum? Then we see we have something in common and instantly feel a tiny bit more comfortable or even safer and are more prone to make a first step.
What would we have done if we have never knew what we know today, and would see the world from the eyes the child we once were?
What is this all indifference we learn to masterise about?
Honestly, don’t you believe sometimes it would be good to drop the mask and take a breath of fresh air?
Think about it people, think about it 😉
