Don't Let Your Friends Slip Away....

I've noticed that at the doctor's office and many other places that I've been to recently, seems like everyone is on their phone, usually a smartphone.  I'm longing to talk to others and meet new people but everyone else is shutting the world out.  The thing is, they are probably on "social" media but at the same time, they are so disconnected from REAL face-to-face conversation and the chance to meet someone new.  It really disgusts me, maybe because I'm not into the whole smartphone thing - I got rid of mine before it got too smart.

What I really enjoy is meeting people at the grocery store or shopping when they aren't on their phones.  Some think I'm weird for talking to them, others are refreshed that someone wants to talk to them.

The saddest part of all this is that so many are letting their friends just slip away.  I've had friends just let me go because I wasn't on Facebook and that is where they have chosen to have their "life."  Since I'm not on there, I'm not in their "life" anymore.  Sad.  God help us.  It is all part of Satan's plan to prevent us from having real, loving relationships and to promote the superficial ones and the fake person we share online in social media - the one we want others to think we are.  The one that makes us feel good about ourselves, boosts our ego and self esteem - the one that is destroying us because it is making us full of SELF.  Taking SELFies and posting pictures of our SELF all. the. time.  Self-glorification is now the norm.

Get off your stupid phones and get a real life!!!!!  Ok, there, I said it.  Don't let life pass you by and friends pass you by, forget your SELF and think about others - don't let Satan distract you all the way to hell.

I feel the same way. It is truly sad seeing everyone missing out on real life for something so fake and deceiving. I do not belong to any of those twitter, facebook sites. I just don't understand the allure. Your Blog post has made me think of how much time i spend on things that really do not add to a fulfilled life. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. I really like how you share what you think and believe.

Bev,
AMEN!!! I used to be on FB, but quit 3 years ago! I LOVE talking to people in the grocery store, at the park, etc. Selfies are just plain bizarre! You're right, self glorification has become the norm, but we can do so much to fight it by not being the norm! Thank you for your encouraging posts! I pray you are healing well!

Anonymous - thanks for the comment. Yes, you don't have to do social media, to see there are other things too that can draw us away and distract.

Tricia - I suppose I've taken "selfies" though I didn't know that is what they were back in the day. I would rather take pictures of my family or my children or in the case of my blog, house things! I'm healing well, the remainder of the issues are slowly fading away - thanks for praying Tricia!! ;-)
