As the economy continues to make its slump, many people often emerse themselves into the only comfort zone during any crisis, distancing themselves from not only others, but their families.
The world changes and the tendency for problems to just escape our minds is solved by locking ourselves into a small bubble or hiding under the blankets. As the worry for the loss of money continues, love for others is neglected for paper, and the love ones we often valued are blamed for our state of mind.
In recent news, there were reports of people killing not only themselves but their families. In such a crisis, there is a need to find a balance to love. The world has secluded itself that transactions are made through a network while hindering the need for that person to person relationship. Person-to-person contact is considered primitive; text messaging and chats are the norm.
The failure to see our lack of balance to love is due to a lack of interaction among each other. Dinner has been dwindled down to taking the food to your room and eating next to the computer or in front of the television. “Mother” and “father” are there for Christmas and birthdays.
What has happened to the families who sat at dinner tables and talked about their day? What happened to mom and dad taking the kids to the movies? What has happened to the kids appreciating the time? Has technology simply taken away order or have we?
As families worry about tomorrow, the need to balance love in a technological age and crisis is very important. While the world may be in disorder, family will always contain order and placement in any type of world.
