Our society is addicted to our phones, social media, and email – according to everyone.
I’ll be the first admit it. I AM.
I crave that connection, I occasionally get nervous when I am waiting for a text or forgot my phone, and god forbid I don’t HOLD my phone walking down the street or have it in the nearest pocket so it’s easily accessible to check every 30 seconds.
What do I think is going to happen in the 2 minutes I walk from the car to the coffee shop? Seriously.
That’s pathetic. And yet, I do it. I DO IT.
So, I watched this TED Talk last night and it just blew my mind. This woman rocked my world because everything she said is so true.
“I share therefore I am” – I’m sorry, WHAT?
“We expect more from technology and less from each other” - That’s freaking terrible and true.
“Being alone feels like a problem that needs to be solved” – Oh man, stop it. Stop it because its again, true.
“Before it was, I have a feeling I want to make a call. Now it’s I want to have a feeling, I need to send a text” – Ughhh, and now you have deciphered what’s actually wrong with me and looked into my soul, Thank You.
So watch it for yourself and prepare to have your mind blown.
ps, don’t look at your phone while doing this.
