Disclaimer: I am not in any way saying phones are solely bad. They’re actually very good and extremely useful when used responsibly. However, there are many reasons phones are dangerous and addictive and that’s mostly what I will be addressing today.
Technology is incredible, isn’t it? Do you think people a hundred years ago would have ever expected technology to be like it is today? I mean, I’m only 21 and yet I never would have imagined smartphones to exist. A mini computer, professional camera, phone, messaging, notes, photo albums, editing software, games, and more all within one small device that can fit in your pocket. It’s become so normal to me that my brain barely registers what I’m holding in my hand, but when I really stop to think about it… it’s pretty amazing.
