How to Destroy Relationships

I have a lot of mixed feelings about technology.  In some ways I think it is great.  After all, I am a blogger.  But I think there are a lot of terrible things about it.

I see a married couple on their phones during their entire dinner, while their baby sits in a highchair.

I see people scrolling through their phones whenever they are are spending time with their friends.

I see families sitting together on their phones instead of talking.

I see people updating their facebook when they go to the bathroom and instagraming every minute detail of their lives.

That scares me.

What are our relationships becoming when we can no longer spend time with a real live person without being distracted the whole time?  How can we say we care about people if anytime we are with them, we are only giving them half our attention?  If our dependence on technology is like this now, what will it be like in 5, 10, 15 years?  

I have no answers, only questions.


  1. i know how it is. sometimes when i'm out with my boyfriend hes always on his phone. it drives me crazy.

    1. Boo! Tell that boy to spend more time in the moment :)
