One of the key clicks that makes us human is our ability to communicate. When living a healthy social life, engaging face to face, caring and respect for others, we pay attention to important principles of code of conduct that help us to live in touch with each other without engaging in excessive neglect. I am not aware of any significant mass of people living in a society at any time in a history that has created times that live in total isolation from the close community, its value and communication skills. And equally important – the ability to learn from their own mistakes over time. The smartphone has been arrested for thousands of generations in this regard.
Your smartphone has been arrested for millennials. You've heard it right. You might be asking … Why do you say this professor? Let me explain why by giving you an example of the reality that has changed how I interact with people of the opposite sex.
When I was a kid, I fought for a conversation with girls face to face. I was so shy and literally afraid to talk to a single-person girl … I had a terrible fear of rejection again. Even though these feelings are not entirely foreign young boys, I know today that my level of mildness (and, consequently, my inability to speak to a man of opposing sex) were probably higher than most boys who were shy in my generation.
Like most kids in my teenage years, I was unprepared to engage in human relations with a woman. I still remember this beautiful girl named Peggy, whom I really had the hotties for. She was beautiful, good and my fate … she seemed like me. The fact that we never came to a date had nothing to do with his human abilities. It had everything to do with me. I was unable to start a useful conversation with her for a chance to ask her on a date. My total loss … and I knew it. However, my inability to break the ice and keep an honest conversation with a girl made me stop thinking about why I was not successful in my love. I spent time thinking about this question and then BINGO! Sometimes I've learned what girls like from my fight. "They want to talk," for the most part. I figured … Well, if girls want to talk, I need to be a good listener. The rest of my friends is a story.
See, I did not need a smartphone to make me feel better or learn how to talk to a girl. Humanity helped me to enjoy later adolescence and young people by stopping and thinking about the obvious. For most of my teenage years (up to 16 years old) I struggled to talk to girls. Some might think of the former as "bad" experience. Well, I see this previous struggle different today. I thank God for how it ended up working in my life in that context and having the ability to cope with the problem and finding a possible solution like a man.
When I was 16, there were no smartphones. My parents returned to mobile phones, which was unusual for the Brazilians back in the 90's, but they were not ready. I did not have the opportunity to go online to make myself feel better for my inability to talk to a girl. Because I had no technology, I had to deal with the problem and develop two very important life skills – critical thinking and listening.
Today, children with disabilities due to technology. Too many millennials are having trouble with a girl and rather than face the problem of finding a solution … They often go on the smartphone and the text! Can not talk to a girl tonight? Go to the smartphone, watch videos with girls and feel better. Can not find a date to go to the prom … Go to the smartphone, chat with Tumbler girls and move on … Do not have friends? Go to the smartphone and sign in to Facebook and chat! The problem is that text messages will not teach the child how to talk to a girl like a man. Avoid (or inability) to talk to a real girl can not change to watch a video about girls. Can not change date for Prom. Do not mess with strangers at Tumbler …
What if I tell you that if you face a problem in life and decide to ignore the situation and go aside, do they actually walk in a circle and be a boss around your life? With or without technology. All of these technologies that are believed to make our lives better are having a very negative impact on the lives of millions of teenagers and young adults today. In fact, they are eliminating them by reducing them to prevent real technology problems.
