Relationships require healthy communication. Humans were smart enough to create tools to assist them in this endeavor. Enter the cell phone. This one invention is one of the most convenient inventions ever created, while simultaneously being one of the most annoying and invasive at the same time.
A person uses a cell for “good” when they call up friends or loved ones who cannot be with them physically, to let them know you are thinking about and loving them.
On the flip side a cell takes on an evil connotation when one “checks up on people,” or calls strictly to argue with them about something.
There is enough stress in a relationship without technology allowing for personal escape.
Miss Brown believes it is completely healthy and necessary to be able to go somewhere alone and think about life. Doing such a thing is not to cut those that care deeply about them out of their life.
On the contrary being introspective can allow one to open up more and be closer to one another.
When a person can understand how they are feeling and why they act the way they do, it will be much easier to express this to a partner, friend, or lover.
Picture this scenario. A person sits alone at their favorite hiding spot. Everything is nice and relaxing. It is a time to hear the voice inside.
Suddenly, there is vibration. A cell phone loudly rings breaking the silence.
All of a sudden the person realizes that they have a device that tracks them. The only force powerful enough to stop an incoming call or text is crappy service.
Most people have been conditioned to want to answer the call. If one decides not to answer there is that nagging voice mail ‘beep.’
The moment is completely ruined as the person will now wonder who that was and what they wanted.
People act like slaves to their cells. The phones are always on and most check it a few hundred times a day.
Miss Brown uses it as her watch and sometimes as a form of entertainment. With this being said, she can go out on walks without the thing glued to her hip.
A cell phone should never take over people time. It can be considered very rude to be with a significant other, a date, or friend and be playing with the phone.
People need to treat cells like anything else in life… moderately. There is a time and a place for the cell phone.
Understand that answering a call is not the be-all-end-all situation some people make it.
Cell phones should be a helping tool, not a relationship stress inducer.
