The society has become increasingly bad mannered. No matter how we long for friendship in others, most people will ask for favors without returning them, which makes us irritable and full of loathe for those people. People long more for advantages they can get from others other than the promise of a simple friendship or loving companionship. So what do we usually do to get around this problem? Read on to find out.
Here is where computers come into the picture. We use tablets, laptops, PC’s, iPads and what not! We prefer these to the direct interaction with other humans for reasons I already mentioned.
People also love to play games as well as type, print and scan documents on the machines. Additionally, they like to interact on social media, like comments and posts in these, chat with whom they like, stop chatting with whom do they don’t like, delete contacts they dislike, find new friends and the cycle repeats.
The same happens for cell phones. We can block people from reaching us whom we condemn and talk to those who resonate with us.
In PC’s, computers, laptops and even cell phones, there is also the access of the mighty reign of internet. So we like to browse stuff that we enjoy, look for information when we are at work or buy stuff from Amazon or other similar online shopping sites.
That way social interaction with other humans has become even less significant compared to what was in reality thirty or forty years back.
In the early days of our grandfathers and grandmothers, family ties were stronger and their children relied on each other and friends of their age to pass valuable time. They played together and held conversations which made them grow up and mature in a better way.
On the other hand, digital gadgets have come to lull kids and adults in the new generation as they busily work on them without having parents to take of their kids constantly. But parents do have a role to watch over their kids and have the knowledge what kind of games they are playing on computers, what cartoons and movies they are watching and what they are browsing. It is up to the parents to rear up their children with the best upbringing, teaching them moral values and ethics no matter what.
Summing up, yes digital gadgets are taking most of our as well as our kids’ precious time. Yet there is great value and significance in interacting directly with other people such as, family members, colleagues, friends, acquaintances and even strangers. Human touch rather than gadgets’ touch give more meaning to life but the reverse is becoming a reality as the world is shrinking every single day.
