hiding behind the keyboard???

I have started to notice how little we are in actual communication with people and how much we depend on the technology of today.  We are very quick to send an email, a text message, or post a message on facebook  rather than have a face to face conversation.

 Does this mean that we say things we wouldn't say if the person were standing right in front of us???.. I would hope that we have not come to that..sometimes it is easier to write down your thoughts in an email..no interruptions that way!!

I would hope that society has not  gotten to the point that we don't know how to actually talk to people.  I know that most of the time I would rather send an email than pick up the phone and talk to someone..it just seems easier and I have gotten to the point where I find the phone annoying and hiding behind the keyboard is easier. 

Emails can be done at anytime and the phone?..well you can only phone people until a certain time...I can send a message at midnight...I love that!!

So if you get an email from me??..it is just a "one sided conversation"..one day the phone calls will start again but for now..you will find me "hiding behind the keyboard"..is there fault with that??..I don't think so..!!

  1. Love this post. It is so true with our society in today's world. Fact of the matter is, I'd like to start getting e-mail from some of my friends again. Seems like all I get in the way of communication now is a tiny blurb on Facebook. Where have we gone wrong?
