Technology has been created to make things easier on our part. Through it, we no longer have to travel distances just so we would be able to talk to someone nor do we need to search through thousands of books just so we would be able to find the information that we need. However, despite the benefits that technology offers us, there are certain drawbacks as well in using them like how it affects our relationship with other people, especially our loved ones.

Believe it or not, a lot of people out there start their day by reaching out to their smartphones, browsing through their social media account or read emails. We are busy enough with using our gadgets that we even forget to greet our brothers, sisters and parents “good morning”.
Thus, conversations among family members becomes shorter and even to the point where they realize that they haven’t talked with each other for a long time already.
Also, as conversations now have become digital, where people often talk to each other through instant messages and online chat as compared to talking face to face, it has become quite difficult to know whether the person you are talking to is sincere, joking or being sarcastic.
After all, we don’t see the other person face nor do we hear their voice and that can sometimes create misunderstandings. Also, we tend to make assumptions that surely affects how we view each other.

Personal touch from our family and friends is still different from simply receiving a smiley face.
