Disconnected Connectedness

A friend on facebook had been posting really depressing stuff on facebook, so finally a few people spoke up:

“Hey man, I’m here for you”

“Do you need to talk about it?”

…that sort of stuff.

And his only response was to brush those people off, assume they’re being fake because it’s over the internet, and basically to remain in the dumps.

How is it that we can reach any person, any information, at the blink of an eye, but so many people feel isolated?
