That's really great Caz. If I could change just one thing of the people around me, it would be that.
I get so f**king sick of people at work talking only about football, or who got evicted in BB. How about talking of the REAL you; What do you think about, what are your fears, dreams, what makes you cry, etc.
Stuff like people being tethered to their devices whenever I go to coffee shops. It's awful to see. How about being present with the people you are actually with.
Materialism. I could really go on about that.
Attitudes to debt. We live with it, but all debt is bad.
Religion. For every penny of good, it causes a tenner of harm.
Perhaps a better way of 'connecting' with the opposite sex (or not, if that's your bag) would be to have an honest and open discussion (good luck with that British people), which would quickly reveal if you're on the same page. I find people are not open. They hide who they are. They fear honest connection.
