We are living in a world and with a generation that spends most of their time staring at their phones. I have often wondered what the obsession is, I have to be honest Smart phones annoy me. I don’t like using them and I particularly do not like the impact that they have had on society.
I am realistic and I know that sometimes these phones are useful but I genuinely did not see the absolute obsession that so many people have with them.
Until recently I think I might have figured it out!
I have noticed that many people that obsess with these phone’s are not actually so much obsessed with their phone or friends but they are actually with themselves!
Their phone is a gateway for the attention that they so badly desire. They are attention whores!
Look at apps like Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and all the rest of them, the people that use these services are not obsessed with their friends, the only thing these people give a fuck about in my experience is themselves.
I’m not saying everybody on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook is a attention whore, but people who are constantly uploading pictures of themselves (selfies) don’t do that for their friends! They do it for themselves! They do it because they have low self esteem, they are desperate to compensate for something and attention makes them feel good.
The trouble is there is always somebody that looks better, somebody prettier, with more likes and followers. You could argue that this kind of action is a form of prostitution! Prostitutes want money these people just want attention.
Do them a favour be cruel to be kind and find a polite way of telling these people that some of us see them for what they are. Very sad lonely, desperate individuals with low self esteem.
