My sister recently sent me a very interesting article which contrasts the unrealistic goals we set for ourselves in this narcissistic technological age of instant gratification and “liking” things with our expectations in actual relationships. He presents love as a threat to the techno-consumerist order. It’s a bit hard to absorb off the jump, but once you get into it the author makes a lot of really excellent points. Basically in this world of self promotion and putting yourself out there for hundreds, if not thousands, of anonymous strangers to ‘like’, we set ourselves up for the initial sting of rejection when faced with actual human emotions and interactions. My favorite quote from this article: “Love is about bottomless empathy, born out of the heart’s revelation that another person is every bit as real as you are. And this is why love, as I understand it, is always specific. Trying to love all of humanity may be a worthy endeavor, but, in a funny way, it keeps the focus on the self, on the self’s own moral or spiritual well-being. Whereas, to love a specific person, and to identify with his or her struggles and joys as if they were your own, you have to surrender some of your self.” Read the full article here.
