#Thrive: Catching up with a good friend

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Whatsapp, WeChat, etc, all sorts of social platforms to help us stay in touch with friends. The irony of it all, technology helps to make it better, makes it easier for people to “talk” to one another, keep in touch without having to meet up. However, how often do you keep in touch with friends after parting ways?

I am glad to have met great people at workplace, and we become good friends.

One of the new year resolutions I’ve made this year, is to catch up with old friends. (Refer to this post.)

I love the personal touch and face to face interaction. I love to see the expression, the body language, which you can never get over text. One can hide some of the emotions behind a screen. (unless you do video-conferencing with your friends all the time, but that is quite unlikely.)

Though it was just a lunch appointment with this friend, but it brought me much positive feelings. It’s about learning from each other, sharing what we wouldn’t do in the digital world. This is social interaction at its best.
