life is calling, but we're too busy texting

what i find incredibly saddening is that our society has come to the point where each of us is too self-absorbed and too busy to take the time to get to know someone. i mean, to really get to know them. it seems that most relationships formed these days would be better described as pseudo-relationships in that we talk to people, but we never really say anything, and we hear, but we don't ever actually listen.

therefore, i propose an idea. the next time you're out with your friends for dinner, keep the cell phone in your purse. can you truly have an intimate conversation with someone while you're having six mini-conversations at the same time? the answer is no.

in essence, take the time to pay attention to the people around you. by letting your life be driven by your cell phone, you're missing out on truly living.

food for thought.
