Through technology, we have lost touch with reality. Often times technology and time spent on social media obstructs spending meaningful time with the people that we care about the most.

In a video made put out by the YouTube channel The Gabbie Show, through the art of dance the message of why social media ruins relationships is displayed in a very creative way.

The video shows the isolation and self-centered nature of social media. It demonstrates how putting down your phone and paying attention to those around you can be super meaningful.

Technology is replacing human interaction. It is hardwired in our brains to need to interact with others. Face to face to communication has been replaced with staring at a screen.

This is not a new idea. Since the technology explosion has enveloped the world we have been warned of the harmful effects that could come from losing time with those around us to “communicate” with those not immediately with us. It seems what we want (or portray to want) is always out of our reach.

Technology has its benefits, but there are monumental advantages to taking breaks from the virtual world to live in the real world.
