Is it ruining our ability to communicate? I recently read this article here and realized in relation to my family.....yes, it is scarey.....Everyone these days communicates by texting or constantly is reading their emails. I have it with my own family. I noticed the last time we all got together....several of my children were on their cell phones...checking email and texting or on Facebook.....I hate it, I would rather talk on the phone than text....but, is that today's way? And can we change?
I recently spent a week on a cruise.....and although they had an internet cafe there, I decided I was going to cut myself off. So for one week, I did not read emails, blog, text, or go surfing. And you know what..........I survived....I put a vacation sign in my Etsy Shop ..... and the whole world did not end because I was not out there "technologically communicating".
I enjoyed good conversations with people on board...and if I had to communicate...I used the telephone.....so it can be done....My questions to you are, "Can you do without technology for one week?" "Have you ever tried?"
