Technology is Ruling Over Our Lives

Hey everyone! I hope you had a Happy New Year and achieve all your goals you set out to accomplish!

For this week, I wanted to pinpoint something that has been on my mind for awhile. It has taken a huge part in our daily lives and is often something we can’t seem to live without.

Any guesses?

Let’s just say, we are holding it right now. They are our cellphones, computers, or tablets that we always seem to have the need to check every second.

Sounds like sarcasm? Well it’s true! I’ve seen people and even myself unlock their phones, check to see if they have any notifications, and lock it. Then after about a minute, feel the need to repeat the whole process.

This is a habit that needs to be changed. It is taking over such a big part of our lives. It’s as if we have no ability to communicate with the people around us without being glued to these devices!

Put it this way, how important would you feel if you are having a conversation with someone and seeing that they are too distracted searching the web?

I admit, I am guilty of being the one that is web-searching; just as much as I have been the one wanting to capture someone’s attention. Neither of them I’m sure would make anyone feel important.

Most of the time, I feel the need to use my phone simply because of the fact that I know I’m being ignored by the other person using theirs. It’s crazy how distant we can feel from one another when we are only a few feet away.

This year, I want to make a change. I want to enjoy spending time with those around me and make uploading a picture on Instagram or Facebook a less priority of mine. I hope that all of you realize that you should, too! Just think about all of the relationships you can build without the necessity to text a friend while you’re at it.

Try it, even if it’s only for a day! I can guarantee that you will become more productive, happier, and more connected with those around you.

  1. Hey Mayra,
    I think it’s cool how you talked about this, but in a way different than the way that most people do. Most people just point the finger at others, but you included yourself too. I definitely am guilty of incessantly checking my phone too.

  2. I agree 100% that technology does ruin our lives! The only benefit is that it makes it easier for us to do a quick research, but other than that, this generation can’t go a day without using any type of technology!

    • Yes! It’s kind of sad that we depend on it so much, but unfortunately that’s what we have to deal with. If our generation is this advanced, imagine how it will be in the future!

  3. It is awesome that you realize this and have great awareness for one so young – your future indeed will be brilliant! I’m excited for you, your positive energy will radiate out in ever widening circles, impacting more people than you can possibly imagine. Shine on!

    • Thank you so much! It really means a lot coming from you. It makes me feel as if I’m doing something right! I also can’t forget to mention how reading your comment has motivated me to keep blogging. You certainly made my night! 🙂
