Hey everyone! Sadly this will be my last post on this topic, I might come back and post things on other topics, but I am unsure of that at the moment. So I hope you enjoy!
Technology, technology, technology. That is what our society revolves around these days and will continue to revolve around for the rest of the world’s existence.
Technology has helped people get closer together but pushed loved ones away as well. We are able to keep up with friends from high school that have moved away but in doing so, we are spend more time on the computer or phone than we spend by being with our families.
Families are a very important thing in everyone’s life. They are the ones you grew up with, played with, and they happen to teach you some of the most valuable lessons you can ever learn. So make sure you do not push away the ones you love just for such a silly thing as technology.
Now I’m not saying throw away all your gizmos and gadgets and stay glued to your family like a bee on a flower. I’m just saying when you are spending time with your family; spend quality time with them and not with your phone. Your friends will still be on the phone ready to talk to you whenever you get back, but you don’t always have your family on hold waiting for you.
If you have older siblings that have gone off to college, you can understand that it is very hard to have your whole family together at the same time. But whenever you are all together, hanging out and talking about your lives, it is amazing and you remember how much you miss them at home.
So if you have older siblings that still live at home with you, then make time to hang out with them, get closer to them because they may make fun of you and be mean to you all the time, but deep down inside they really do love you. They won’t always be there with you and when they leave, you realize how much they actually mean to you and how much you care about them.
If you ever get in a real fix and need help, who will help you? Yes, your friends can help you, but friends come and go, but your family will always be there for you no matter what. You have a special bond with your family that no one can break and all you have to do is make the bond stronger by getting to know them.
Technology can help you make a stronger bond if your family members have moved away because you can always talk to them on the phone or though Skype. That is why there are such things, to make it easier to talk to the people you love.
All in all, technology can be a hurtful thing or a helpful thing, depending on the way you use it. Whenever you spend time with your family, soak up every second of it, because this time you spend with them won’t last forever and they can be gone in a blank of an eye.
