I saw yesterday in a program called (IF YOU REALLY KNEW ME) that like fourty people and almost all had lots of friends and still some of them even tried suicide before because they felt lonely, and it makes me think because how can the world be so big and full of people and still we cant interact with each others and like 40 years ago that problem wasnt so big and i think its something we should be worried about. Thanks for reading and posting :)

Yes, because these days we are encouraged to have independent thought, forsaking for that freedom whatever other agreements we may have with people we call friends. Example: a church-group I associate with regularly. Many of their 'elders' (pastors, long-time members, etc.) have their philosophies firmly-set in the church-isms that they were brought-up with (as do I, I'm sure) ... But sometimes I get new enlightenment that directly contradicts their ways of thinking (the non-existence of hell, the irrelevance of non-existence, the correct understanding of the fourth commandment (RE: the Sabbath), etc.) Whenever they weave one of those misunderstandings into the teaching of another understanding, I am reminded that I am entirely at the mercy of those who hear me (as regards my teachings' reputation)---if they don't agree with me (and change their teachings accordingly), I am 'as good as alone.'
