There is a lot going on now days but one thing I have noticed is that a lot people do give themselves the opportunity to grow up and mature. Social media has this grasp on people that just seems impossible to be broken unless you have committed to not being a part of it.
Parents are missing out on experiences and opportunities with their children because they are so focused on staying in the cliques that they have been in their whole lives. They are unable to mature and experience all that life has to offer for themselves. Instead they are glued to their mobile devices, their status updates, or their social feed. It’s an insatiable appetite that grows for more and more. Gossip fuels our social media and corrupts our interpersonal skills.
Image life without status updates, seeing what someone was cooking or reading about someone else’s dirty laundry then gossiping (like, re-tweet or comment) on it. Image running into someone and actually having a conversation because they have no idea what has been going on in your life. Image just running into someone and having a conversation at all. They seem so few and far between because we hide behind our social anxiety unable to relate to other human beings.
I am really interested in your comments so please let me know what you are thinking or ha e additional input.
