Solitary Confinement vs Social Behaviour

Geethica

My writings are reflections of my views towards life. I believe that whatever happens only happens with a reason. And the best happens when it is not seen. Because holding on believes that there is a past; letting go knows that there is a future. My piece of work gives me a second chance that life denies.
My words help me build my character each and every day. I read new articles every day and learn something new from them. And I am trying to write also regularly. All the visuals that happen around me make a place inside my brain waiting to be penned down as beautifully as possible.
Travel along my blogs to explore life and it’s happenings through my eyes. Do share your views as they will make me learn more. And they are highly valued.

    Money cant buy happiness. True happiness comes with family and friends.

    I am such a loner but your point did get to me and I am going to try more and more to be a social person

    Beautifully put Geethica. In today’s world, we are all trying to run the rat race at every stage of our lives and trying to go one up than the rest. While competition is good, as it keeps us motivated, we generally don’t seem to be happy even after we have it all. We may have all the money in the world but without love, family and friends, we still don’t have a lot.

     
  6. RamyaRao says:

    Thought provoking post Geethica. Solitary confinement is an awful punishment but since we are all social beings. And as far as social media is concerned, its a mirage
    🙂

     
  7. So well said! You are completely right! Social interactions are the need of the hour! We need to save ourselves from this self imposed digital confinement!

     
  8. anandsharma says:

    Well written. All the points are perfectly placed. I was so engrossed in reading this. Keep writing more stuff like this.

     
  9. I am so glad your raised this Geethica and it is so damn true, the unnecessary competition only tends to ruin our lives.

     
  10. Anchal says:

    You have beautifully put the truth out in the world. Life is a competition these days.

     
  11. You mke some valid points here but social behavior is not always source of happiness. One needs to balance between the two.

     
  12. vidhiduggal says:

    You have said a lot in few words. Very deep thoughts expressed in simple words.

     
  13. amazing read and i believe this reflects the society we are today or going to be

     
  14. I will agree but only to an extend- our desires and needs have become very subjective and it is not difficult to generalize what makes one happy and what does . That’s what i think.

     
    • Geethica says:

      Yes, diffrent things or persons make different people happy at some point. There’s always unity in diversity. Thanks Avinash.

       
  15. Hi Geethica! This has to be one of my all time favourite posts of yours. This is apt for the modern world that we live in. I´m going to be sharing this for all to read. A great reminder for all of us. Thank you so much for writing these beautiful and timeless thoughts. Keep writing! Love and God Bless!

     
  16. Motheropedia says:

    This post is hurtfully true. Social media, our screens, our need to have ‘me time’ are all such vices in today’s times. We are only growing more apart from each other.

     
  17. Beautiful post which reflects today’s truth. I need my my-space to breathe but after awhile I need people around me. Or else it suffocates me.

     
  18. TheMomSagas says:

    Such a wonderful post. Makes me thin and reflect more about life.

     
  19. Well said Geethica! I have seen many relations fall apart because of the issue you have highlighted. If only people focused more on family and friends around them more than the gadgets they so loving take care of.

     
  20. Disha says:

    We have become so confined by gadgets, that we are forgetting the need to connect socially. Your post leads me to thinking how the coming generation would be…

     
  21. Such a thoughtful post! Yes, we need a cooperative world rather than a competitive world.

     
  22. Shalini says:

    What a great thought, Geethica. It’s a sad truth. Even kids love to sit inside with a mobile phone or computer than go outside and play with other kids. Beautifully written!

     
  23. Such a wonderful post. Thank god I can not live without social life. Friends & Family around me, virtual groups… this is what drives me most.

     
  24. Shamik says:

    Very nice post and very true to its fact as well. Nicely articulated and thank you for sharing. I loved reading it.

     
  25. momsmethods says:

    You’ve put this so well.. I remember, going to our friends place in the building unannounced was a very normal thing.. but these days its all become so formal and like you said much less social

     
  26. Modern Gypsy says:

    That’s so true! People have become so focused on social media and external achievements and fame that they forget the things that really matter: family, friends, and conversations. If we don’t have time for that, no amount of money and fame can make us happy!

     
  27. Gayatri says:

    This is the paradox of our times Geethica. Excess of social media has created a rat race of instant gratification, insecurities and fierce competition.It is important to look for depth in people, places, experience and actions for contentment.

     
  28. Family on the wheels says:

    Grt thought ..Yes , IT has changed our world and with the emergence of AI , may be out thought process will be dead too .. Bots area going to do everything

     
  29. Atulmaharaj says:

    Totally agree with you on this. There’s so much competition around that you are never happy and want to be better than your neighbour !

     
  30. apsster says:

    This is just to the point. Haven’t we just forgotten how to live life? 🙁

  31. Agree on most of the things from growing together to spending most of the time with gadgets but in a way it is good to have gadgets around because society becomes annoying at times.

    At times people just want to gossip about other people’s life. They just to pull other people down. I feel that’s why people are getting addicted to gadgets.

     
    • Geethica says:

      Yes, there are different reasons for different people that pushes them towards gadgets. But it is important for us to make a balance between all.

       
  32. shraeblog says:

    Yes,life is not a competition.Social media has created jealous behavior with relationship and lifestyles.

     
  33. Diya@februaryreve says:

    Hey!
    I feel it’s the virtual socializing (the itch to check every other app) that gets so taxing that people start inching towards solitude at times.

     
  34. ashiot says:

    If only there was a competition of who is most happy, everyone would be chasing happiness.

     
  35. anindya0909 says:

    Hey very nicely and in a simple manner you have highlighted some of the modern day problems and it all depends on us how we try to solve it . Great post

     
  36. SoulMom says:

    Social behaviour and solitary confinement both have their highs and lows. Yet both are essential for our growth and to lead a balanced life. Nice thoughts here Geethica. Good Luck to you!

     
  37. Ah this has got me thinking on so many things ! Great post

     
  38. Akshata Ram says:

    Thats a great thought – its is true though we are richer, have better comforts, life feels empty without our loved ones. I only fear it will get worst with time.

     
  39. Varsh says:

    Humans are social animals and solitary confinement, unless necessary or advised, isn’t healthy. Good post.

     
  40. zainab says:

    We need to dig way deeper to look for that happiness. Loved your post, G!

     
  41. Iram says:

    This is the topic that almost everyone can contemplate to. We are caught up in our own world. Where earlier people used to go out of the way to help each other, these day we don’t even offer plain help gesture.
    It’s very sad but true and we all are part to it.

     
  42. Very good insights .Happiness is an inside job I feel .People look for it in the wrong places

     
  43. Novemberschild says:

    Some people see solitary confinement as one of the most difficult ways to do time, while others seek it out to feel safe. So, is it an ethical incarceration practice? By weighing down its pros and cons, each of us will have sufficient knowledge to decide which side of the debate he or she supports.

     
  44. arv! says:

    It is true that today we have more things with us but we are not happy, the reasons are plenty. expectations, wants and ego are few reasons why it is like this. Enjoyed reading this post Geethica!

     
  45. Ashima Jain says:

    It’s ironical how social media is the cause of solitary confinement. Well said, Geethica!

     
  46. anupriya says:

    I completely agree with you Geethica. People today have heavy pockets yet empty hearts. All your thoughts are so very true

     
  47. Such a simple and hard hitting post, Geethica. Material happiness is all what we crave for, leaving behind the real form of happiness which is with family and friends.

     
  48. I agree with you. Humans are social beings and our lifestyles today are inhibiting that natural tendency of ours.

     
  49. nuttynupur says:

    So short, but so powerful. Great job.

     
  50. Ruby Singh says:

    I personally feel that your personal happiness and solace is more important than the social one. If being solitary gives you that then why not.

     
    • Geethica says:

      That’s fine. But after a point, you may need someone in flesh to love you and talk to you. Still these are all personal choices.Thanks Ruby.

  52. This post is what we all need to read right now, our vague idea of chasing happiness.

     
  53. Obsessivemom says:

    You’re right Geethica. All of us need to step back a little bit and focus on happiness rather than getting ahead in life.

     
  54. I agree with your thoughts, Geethica. Well written post.
    Competition is fierce, in everything . I wish people would compete for happiness and contentment instead.

     
  55. Geethica, we must stop competing and enjoy what life gives us. The more we enjoy, the more happiness will come our way. We are what we think.

     
  56. Hena Jose says:

    Great post Geethica..so true…We are so busy with life that we forget to live

     
  57. It’s very crusical topic these days. Everyone talking about the harmful effects of using phones and net and encourage that there should be more social gatherings but still no one taking any initiative towards this. Even I am one of them. So your post is a reality of our today’s life.

     
  58. With so much of technology and competition, people have turned themselves to confinement…Wo so need to come out of this…

     
  59. A wise perspective for Solitary Confinement Vs Social Behavior. You put it very effectively. And looking forward to read your posts on healthy competition. It’s great choice at present. Happy to join with you for #MyFriendAlexa !!!

     
  60. alpanadeo says:

    Awesome Geethica. Your post has pointed out exactly what’s going on in our lives and society. Busy lifestyle, less time for socialising, nuclear family. But it has to change and we are one who should change it.

    Lovely read!!

     
  61. You nailed it Geethica. Social behaviour is what makes us what we are today but we are all going towards social confinement and its not good.

     
  62. Jiya B says:

    This what we are today. confined to ourselves. I loved the post it shows us mirror.

     
  63. Tina Basu says:

    Life sometimes is unfair. We lead very different lifestyles than what the previous generation lived. Solitary confinement is to be blamed. Happy alexa month

     
  64. True that Geethica I so much agree with your post here. Solidarity Confinement is some where responsible in we getting aloof from other humans and getting more and more insecured on trivial things. Beautiful thought

     
  65. Aesha says:

    Life has become competitive. If this is how adults conduct themselves, I worry about what we will teach our children. Empathy and social skills need to be nurtured in children and our behaviour as adults needs to be the teacher.
