«Happiness is only real when shared»
Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild
Modern world and aspiration to future change our values . We talk a lot about individualism and independancy. We want to be free. Sometimes, we refuse from everything that might limit our freedom - from families, from relationships. As a consequence, nowadays , one of the most widespread problems is loneliness.
Why it’s important?
“Loneliness creates a deep psychological wound, one that distorts our perceptions and scrambles our thinking”
Guy Winch, psychologist
“Loneliness Might Be A Bigger Health Risk Than Smoking Or Obesity”
Well, I want to talk about values, that, on my point, we have to remember. About people and loneliness vs happiness.
WEDO - it’s a prototype of an internetional webservice, where you can find an event to visit, help, or people to spend time.
It works just on area you chose on the map, so main idea of WEDO it’s- join people from the same local together.
I believe that it can help sociaty to feel more happy and remember, that people are important.
Categories of events are created as an answer to different kinds of loneliness:
New-situation loneliness - DISCOVER PLACES
I’m-different loneliness - DO ART
No-animal loneliness - PETS
No-time-for-me loneliness - DO SPORT
Untrustworthy-friends loneliness - KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE
Quiet-presence loneliness - HOME ACTIVITIES
Thank you and enjoy!
