Self-destruction, self-realisation or just simple sharing?
Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Whatsapp, Weheartit.. and the list goes on.
Everyone has at least one of those apps on their phone and if they say that they don't, they're probably lying or they all possess a phone that doesn't support any of these applications. I mean, even my grandmother from overseas uses Facebook, Line, Viber and Skype to keep in touch with her family members from far far away. Who would have thought? But that's not the point right now and not the subject I wanted to talk about in this post. I wanted to talk about how so many people do not know how to handle today's technology.
The other day, I overheard someone saying that we all forget to live the moment as in each and every single situation we decide to take our mobile phone into our hands and start to take pictures of our beautiful surroundings, of our view onto the endless seeming ocean or the view onto a thousand city lights, our morning coffee at Starbucks, our lunch and dinner at some expensive restaurant, some exquisite Lamborghini which cruising through town or simply pictures of the party we are currently attending. Now, the question is.. are we doing this because we really feel the undying need to share the current and, in our eyes, precious moment or do we take numerous pictures just to show off and to make others jealous just by showing them how extremely fabulous our lives are? Good question, isn't it? I guess there is no right or wrong answer to give to this one as everyone decides this for themselves.
You see, there are so many various people on this gorgeous planet and I'm honestly thankful that everyone is individual in one way or another. Sure, at the end of the day we all crave the same and we all survive thanks to the same ingredients and tricks given.. but I guess due to us growing up in different places, different times and with different people, we start having different views on things, obviously. Which is not even wrong, if you ask me. This way we learn from each other. This way, we can try to see the world through their eyes and maybe try to understand other things too.. things that might have never been important in our eyes.
So hey, why don't you leave a comment below and let me know about your thoughts and opinion? I'm curious to know how every single one of you feel about this.
