Okay, so I know people on the internet are real people. However this day in age people only talk to you by way of technology. I’m going to take a stand against faceless communication. Quite frankly I’m tired of it. I feel like an inanimate object. I’m flesh and blood, a breathing person who needs live human interaction. The only time I get to talk to someone outside of work is on the phone or Facebook, etc… Most people won’t even answer their damn phones when you call them. They want to text a whole conversation and if they don’t want to text, they leave you hanging for hours before they get back to you. What the hell is wrong with people!?
What happen to the good old days when we all got together? My family is spread out all over the country, so it’s harder for us to visit them on a regular basis. That’s no excuse. We were brought up in close family relationships. As children, our parents took us to our relatives houses. We traveled sometimes hundreds of miles on the weekends to visit our grand parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, their sisters, brothers, and friends. They took vacations during the year and we traveled across country to visit family and friends. They had a need to interact with loved ones. We had dinner together, every meal. Played games, cards, domino’s etc…Hugged and kissed each other.
Now, no one has time to give you the time of day, much less visit each other. Every one I, know, is climbing the ladder of selfishness and greed. Only to find themselves shackled to the parameter of their own homes. When did money become the priority? When did material possessions take precedence over family? When did seeing your children go off to college and pursue a life of greed become the most important thing in our lives? We all want our children to do well. How ever we’ve become a society obsessed with making sure they get more than they deserve. We’ve created children who think they are entitled and money grows on trees. Children who are so busy in their own lives, they don’t have time for a family unity. Parents are the cause of family break downs today.
We try to give our children too much in life. They learn to expect material things, and show little gratitude. In turn, they never learn what it is to put in a long day at work. Many children I know don’t earn the things they have. They don’t know how to care for themselves. We’re to busy protecting them from every little thing in this big bad world. We push our children so hard to get the things we didn’t have. If we think about it, we were far better off back then, than they are today. This very thing I’m ranting about is caused by watching their role models. We spend way to much time separated from human contact, interacting with family and friends from a virtual world of technology. I personally spend hours on a computer daily. It’s time for me to step away and use my time more wisely.
