Are our phones taking over our lives? Here's a question which probably everyone may think about at least once a day. I know this because this is something which has triggered myself too. There's many times you have attended personal events and most of the time is literally spent on taking pictures or videos! people don't realise the ironic importance of appreciating the world from their own eyes. Every sort of an happening event is seen from their Phone Camera's Perspective.
For example; I recently saw a mother recording her child crawling the first time on snapchat. Although there is nothing wrong in videoing your child crawl the first time. But why is it difficult to cherish the mother and child bonding moment by just yourself. Point here is that, the person ends up getting too involved into how the video actually looks than to be realistically enjoying the happening moment itself!
Previously, I had deleted all of my social media and all I could do on my phone was probably texting and calling my family. In these times, I had gone on a couple of outings, which made me realise that people hardly even communicate anymore as they are too busy taking selfies on their snapchats or other source of social media. However, now that I have got all of these social media's back on my phone, I also feel prisoned by all of it. It is like, you can't even be happy without showing people what you're doing with your life!
