We live in a world where many people expect instant gratification. In the blink of an eye we have the information we need at our fingertips through the internet.
We don’t have to write drawn-out letters to communicate with family or friends any more. If we have access to a computer we can e-mail, quickly and efficiently. Through technology we have moved forward.
Technological advances are positive, but the flip side of that is that we continue to expect things at our fingertips. Whilst we have created a niche for ourselves through the latest technology, we think we can have the same in our relationships.
We can never have instant gratification in our relationships, instead we must work at those. Patience, empathy and understanding in relationships needs to be cultivated and nurtured.
Instead, we should look at how we can be more patient, how we can be more kind, how we can be more understanding, and who and what matters to us most in our life. It is time we change the way we think and communicate with each other.
