FAITH, EXISTENCE AND RELATIONSHIP 3
Man longed to feel free! He fought to improve living conditions, not to die of hunger, to be able to travel, to dream, to fall in love, to decide for himself what he wants. He built machines, travels the internet, follows and is followed by thousands of other people, from all parts of the earth. He puts filters on his photos, enters and exits virtual reality worlds! But he feels alone and unsatisfied. He struggles with relationships, hoping they won't betray him. He often betrays them first, as he feels the weight of commitment. He leaves chased by diversity. He finds it difficult to trust, he is afraid of strangers. He looks suspiciously at others and demands that they confirm his own self.
As she searches for self-esteem and self-awareness she realizes that joy in relationships remains the goal. Modern postmodern man seeks to be so self-sufficient in his loneliness that he feels relationship as a discount, a threat.
Stay married, divorce your relationship,
come-out your truth, get angry and forgive,
do whatever you want by making the paradoxical commitment:
don't settle for fake, don't identify with the pleasure it offers
the superficiality of ephemeral gatherings with the joy of connecting faces…
