[vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”2/3″ id=”” class=”post-content” style=””][text_output]Cellular phones have been moved from an accessory gadget to an absolute necessity. Nowadays, both old and young people are normally glued to their smartphone. This has changed every facet of our lives, even traditional family gatherings suffer as members would rather touch the screens than communicating face-to-face.

Most people will deny they fit the description; but, smartphone addiction has become a serious problem. They allow us to escape into a private reality where we choose what to engage with; we see what we want to and ignore what we don’t. Once upon a time, siblings would fight over which TV show to watch. That interaction was a critical part of our development as people; unfortunately, this is fading.

Back then, we had to talk, to share our heart/feelings, to understand each other and compromise for the sake of the family. Now, our smartphone is our TV, our cinema and our best friend. We can easily escape to the world where there is less stress. People we don’t like gets blocked, and we can post comments without seeing the pain they cause. There’s no need to really care anymore, we can just exist.

Learning to deal with people we would rather avoid, seeing the hurt our words cause, and truly connecting in a personal way are essential to our development. Resistance builds muscle; it also builds character. This technology may have connected us to people far across the globe, but it has also diminished our ability to truly connect heart-to-heart.

A child who has never heard the word, “No!” becomes spoilt. In the real world, we don’t always get our way and we cannot avoid dealing with people outside of that small screen. Here, we have to manage relationships and face real people, not avatars or emoticons. This “human interaction” is every healthy for our minds. A lack of it makes us weak-minded.

Screens and phones — they are undeniably useful tools. However, they can be abused or misused if we don’t take periodic breaks from them. Let’s keep our hearts flowing. It’s time to stop hiding behind the screen and “face” some resistance; we need strong minds![/text_output][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/3″][ultimate_heading main_heading=”Recent Posts” alignment=”left” main_heading_font_size=”desktop:20px;” main_heading_font_family=”font_family:Oswald|font_call:Oswald”][/ultimate_heading][recent_posts type=”post” count=”3″ orientation=”vertical” fade=”true” offset=”” category=”” id=”” class=”” style=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTNDc3R5bGUlM0UlMEEuZW50cnktdGh1bWIlMjBpbWclMjAlN0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjBtYXgtaGVpZ2h0JTNBJTIwNDAwcHglM0IlMEElN0QlMEElMEEucG9zdC1jb250ZW50JTIwJTdCJTBBJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwdGV4dC1hbGlnbiUzQSUyMGp1c3RpZnklM0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjB0ZXh0LWp1c3RpZnklM0ElMjBpbnRlci13b3JkJTNCJTBBJTdEJTBBJTNDJTJGc3R5bGUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row]
