I am in NEED of a technology cleanse! This Monday morning all I’ve been doing is texting, e-mailing, Instagramming, Tweeting, blah blah all things modern technology, which seems to be no different than any other day, and now I find myself blogging! Huh! I am sick of having my phone in my hands, my ipad in the other, and my laptop in front of me. Anyone with me?
Here’s my food for thought this morning…With all this technology and social networks, are they really just making us anti-social in real life? I had dinner with some friends the other night and found that most of us were on our phone 75% of the time, yes being social, but not with the people in the same room! There is so much isolation now from one another because of a false sense of connection. Texting, commenting on eachother pictures, liking one another’s thoughts is such a fun way to communicate, but have we lost the need to meet with people face to face?
I wish so bad I could just go on a tech. cleanse for a week and truly connect with people in the most organic way we know. No having to worry about there being no wifi, getting enough likes on Insta or FB, no pressure to reply to e-mails and messages. I really feel that the world has lost a connection that not even the support team of google or facebook can fix. I’m sad to realize that with all these new ways to connect we really have been divided than united and although modern technology has benefited our generation in so many ways, I still look back and am glad to have lived a part of my life before it.
