It's easy to become dependent on technology and live only through social media, but the trend needs to change before humans lose their ability to connect and relate with each other.
Have you been around people lately? Whether on the subway or in a coffee shop, it’s rare true connection is made with another human being, for most people use their cellphones as a means to escape reality and those around them.
Sadly, though technology has only advanced to this level in the past couple of decades, it’s nearly everyone who is guilty of living through their phones rather than being present. And the picture captured by John Blanding at the Black Mass movie premiere in Brookline, Massachusetts perfectly shows this.
A crowd of fans is seen greeting movie stars with their smartphones held high, but only one woman is truly present and appreciating the experience. Can you spot her?
The woman’s contrasting approach has earned her heaps of praise on social media after the photo went viral.
It is a great reminder that life is in the now and measured by the amount of gratitude reaped from the experience, not the amount of likes accumulated on Instagram.
Are you dependent on technology and living only through social media? It’s something to ponder, and a thought worth sharing.
