Our Obsession with Technology

We are living in a time where we are constantly dependent on technology for everything.

Our phones are constantly buzzing. The red notification has left us completely unhinged–begging us to drop everything and find out what it could possibly be.

Unintentionally, technology has become our closest friend.

Without technology and our mobile phones in particular, we feel like something’s missing. A laptop is now a necessity when travelling. What’s a trip without photos that we can immediately upload to Facebook or Instagram? It’s almost like it didn't happen if it doesn't get shared on the one of the numerous social networking websites.

Technology can be a great tool for helping us take more control of our lives as well as the ability to control us.

On the positive side, we can now connect to friends around the globe, making distance a poor excuse.

But we mustn’t lose sight of the bigger picture. Everything is good when done in moderation. We know of many families who can’t put down their phones at dinner. Ads mock the break-up text, however we all know someone who has been on the receiving end.

Technology can be unforgiving and uncompromising in terms of how much we allow it to control our lives, but we don’t have to let it treat us this way. We can still have control. If we want to harness the positives and admit that nothing is more important than how we engage in the present then we can start to focus more on the positive side of this amazingly complex thing we’ve all grown fond of.
