In the age of Facebook, IPhone, twitter, gmail apps, texting, we have absolutely no excuse not to be accessible or keep in touch.
It’s a great thing, to be “instantly” connected to everyone’s snippets of life.
You know? Never missing a beat.
However, as of late as much as I love technology, I can’t help but wonder if we have an over dependence on it. If we use the mask of text messaging, Facebook messaging and/or status updates to avoid a real and important conversations.
It’s so much easier to flirt, ask hard questions, etc hiding behind the ease and convenience of a text or Facebook message.
I’m guilty of all the above on a consistent basis.
But what am I and the rest of us who do this so afraid of?
Rejection? Making someone uncomfortable? Creating grounds for a disagreement or a quarrel?
Well we are human, so probably so.
I’m not saying using or engaging with people via technology platforms is bad.
But there are certain situations where we all need to show more courage and actually engage in person or even pick up the phone.
People need people.
People need honest and real in person conversations.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you agree that we sometimes depend on technology too much?
