Why does modern life overwhelm us so? The answer lies in our lack of essential elements: intimacy, peace, and silence. Our world is inundated with relentless mental velocity – technology, social media, the internet – fostering shallow connections among people and a swipe-left culture that encourages abandoning relationships as soon as they become complex.
To remedy this disquietude for oneself, begin with awareness. There’s no immediate need to combat the feeling of being overwhelmed; rather, simply acknowledge its presence alongside your yearning for true intimacy and moments of tranquility. With this consciousness comes the first step towards reclaiming serenity amidst the chaos.
