I’m extremely disappointed by people nowadays. We think how awesome and clever we are, but the truth is on the other end. We’re getting lazy, dumb and selfish.
When you go somewhere on a trip and you see a beautiful piece of nature, what will you do? Will you take a photo and post it on Instagram? Will you type a cool post on Facebook? Will you tweet it on Twitter? You will and you’ll walk away. What about watching? Yes, of course, you are watching. All of us are watching, but how many of us actually see? What about turning your phone off and enjoying the moment? Oh, let me guess. You’re too busy to do that. Typical.
People watch, so they can say they’ve seen it.
People listen, so they can respond.
People chat, so they can feel sociable.
All you have to do is to stop! Just stop! Look around yourself and enjoy what you have, no matter it’s not cool anymore. I’m not against social sites at all, they can be really helpful, but don’t let them control your life. You can use them, but you have to know, where’s the border of what’s healthy and what’s not.
When you’re watching, then watch!
When you’re listening, then listen to know, not to respond.
Turn off your phone and meet your friends in public, not on Facebook.
