Our Story - Language and Technology
Everyone has their own story. The story that you tell yourself about you. This frames a major part of your identity, self-esteem and mindset. Unfortunately, we are consistently incredibly unreliable narrators of our own story, which leads to anxiety, depression, isolation and countless distorted perceptions of the world around you.
When coupled with technology and online interactions, every post, text message, email and engagement can have our feelings projected onto them. We interpret in the way we want to, altering our story to fit and often becoming vulnerable in the process.
Anyone can be vulnerable at any time, but the nature of technology can exacerbate it with its anonymity, its lack of tone and empathy, leading to our own bubble of vulnerability.
