We depend on the net on almost anything.
If there’s something you don’t know, you google it.
If you want to learn a new skill, go to youtube.
If you want buy something, you check up e bay. I
checked up the net on “how to be happy”.
I even look up the net on dealing with people. Isn’t that quite an irony. You look up the Internet for information on human interactions? But guess what, soon enough, online dating is about to be the new age to relationships. People these days are already looking for Love online.
It’s only going to take a while more before it becomes a norm. What have we become? Maybe its just me. I’ve met happy people in my life. I know I am not one of them. If you give it a thought, you can probably tell who are the happier people in your lives too. Some of these happy people happen to be quite dependent on the net too.
Why then do I feel as though I shouldn’t keep up? Perhaps it applies to different people.
I’ve heard alot of talk about how being online excessively can lead to psychological problems like depression, isolation and so on. Yet, I’ve also heard a lot about how you’d lose out if you don’t keep yourself updated. I think we all start to forget about one thing. About exceptions. About how each individual can be different. I’m probably going to be quite affected when i dwell on the net too much. Maybe its different for you. Perhaps you’d find a key to keep yourself controlled.
There really isn’t a point for this post. Its just a reminder to myself.
