We Need to talk about Sarapocial Relationships

From vlogbrothers.

Brittany’s whole interview is worth listening to here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cfi4v5QM4E

One thing I think about a lot is that the people who are often best at maintaining a sarapocial relationship are not people I…like. Like Trump is great at it, Elon Musk is a great at it. It’s definitely not a skill that only comes when you’re a good person, so that’s something I try and think a lot about…just because I’m good at something doesn’t mean I’m good.

Also, one of the difficult exercises of all of this is that I understand that the core is different on different platforms, and that the way people feel when consuming different kinds of media matters a huge amount. So that’s just a lot to try and keep in your head all at once.
