Could we make more of an effort to interact with each other in our day to day lives? Why and why not?
I think we can all remember the lesson that we were all taught when we were younger; "Never talk to strangers!" - The lesson was an important one that aimed to protect us from the dangerous hidden characters in our society. But as we all grow up at what point should we, if at all, break out of that habit of not talking to strangers (if that is even the reason behind the habit or not is not the question.
The question is; could we make more of an effort to interact with each other in public, without feeling intrusive or odd, and to what degree? I for one think that maybe a little more openess to talking and being talked to would not do us any harm; would be rather beneficial actually.
Or is it just right that we keep ourselves to ourselves and politely respect each others public privacy?
