Is The Covid-19 Pandemic Causing Instagram to Lose Its Luster?
Get off your phone! Live! Go outside! Enjoy the world! Get a book and start reading it! Learn a new language! Get out that dusty old guitar or piano and start playing it. Pick up that phone and call your parents. Do something productive with your life. You are dying. Your children are getting older. Your family will soon be gone.
You are not as nimble as you were yesterday. Your skin is not as soft. Your sight isn't as good as it once was. You're a bit slower than you once were. Time has separated you from those you love. Relationships have not been nurtured. Life is moving on and on. Someone you love may be taking their last breaths. Yet, you are locked into a virtual world and while you scroll you seem to believe that the world has stopped. It hasn't. It still turns. Virus or no virus, the world is moving on. All of nature works in the same way that it always has. Aging is still happening. Now more than ever it should be apparent. You may have thought the world has stopped as you scroll through post after post on social media, but it has not and it never will.
