It’s Time to Break Down the Walls

Through many experiences that I was been involved in and witnessed, I have noticed that most miscommunications and drama that has occurred is because of walls. If you take a moment and think back on some situations, most (not all but most) of the conflict caused is because of walls. Walls cause destruction.
People put up walls. With walls up, obviously communication can not happen the way in which it is supposed. If one literally put up a wall in between two people and they tried to talk to each other through the wall, the words would become twisted and morphed on the way to pass through the barrier and because of this people interpret them differently. Same thing metaphorically, if you replaced the wall with other people, space, or time you will receive the same result as the wall with the two people on each side.
Phones are walls. The same thing happens with them as with the previous example. In this generation so much drama happens and is created via texting, Snapchat, Instagram, or any other social medias. People are hurt and bullied over these devices. Texting; the wrong impression can easily happen. A sarcastic joke can easily turn into a sharp, wicked threat or insult that can put the two people in a fight when the only intention was to make a funny remark. This would not have happened if the wall, in this case the phones, were not up. People think that putting a phone in front of your face, is like putting up a wall. You can not see through a wall and neither can you see who is on the other side of that screen. Because of this, people think they have the immunity to say whatever, and do whatever they want, at the expense of whoever or whatever they want.
Walls are one of the factors that cause the destruction of relationships. Let us all do ourselves a favor and break down those walls. The world will be an easier more well-functioning place is we did not have them.
