My group of friends invited me for a “get-together” one time. We had not seen each other for quite sometime, so I thought it was a great idea.
We met in a restaurant, exchanged his-hellos, took pictures to post on Instagram and Facebook so the world will know that we met again at last, and then everybody’s busy clicking and swiping their phones, uploading our photos together as well as the food.
Our “get-together” ended without even talking about our whereabouts of the days that we were not together. (Sigh.)
It’s just so sad to think, that moments like this when we’re supposed to talk about each other are gone. In this world where WIFI is every where and we have unlimited data on our phone, physical connection is very rare.
In my country, almost all stores ,restaurants and establishments have WIFI. It is easier to get in touch with your family and friends through social media than talk to them in person.
My teacher once said that technology makes our life easier, faster and more comfortable. My own understanding that time, it should give less work. And yeah, I must have agreed.
However, in my opinion now, it makes our life even busier and stressful. It is giving us a lot of work, making us more stressed. Don’t get me wrong, I know how convenient and important is technology to us. Just sometimes, I hope we know our limit.
My point here is that…sometimes, I wish restaurants don’t have WIFI connection to encourage us to talk and have some quality time with our family or friends. I wish, “get-together(s)” will get it’s real purpose and not just limited to taking pictures and uploading it on social media. I wish we’ll realize that our bonding moment is more important than letting the world know our whereabouts.
That’s the reason why I admire this!
Well, as usual…I’m just sayin’. 🙂
‘Til my next Monday vibration! Keep safe!
