While the concept of writing a physical letter has seen its day (Sorry Jane). Cyberly, our current norm doesn’t engage with others as in the days of pen pals or writing to strangers for the sake of positively connecting physically. Some say those days are over. Yes, today it is clearly no longer a typical daily social norm in most of our circles. However, some are highlighting this nostalgic expression as a way of bringing people together again. The article below shines some light on an old idea connecting new people — the “Dear Stranger” concept allows people to engage in story-sharing as a way of reaching out to those outside of your immediate circle (stay with me — don’t get too uncomfortable yet), or to those you don’t know but might end up liking to. This outmoded concept begins to bridge people by adding to their sense of expansion. A little nudge to look outside our sometimes, narrow horizons, which take us beyond one’s surrounding limited peripheral view.
