A life between two worlds.

Who doesn’t know it, you meet with friends, only to sit silently next to each other again and stare hypnotized at your smartphone. Why the fuck do we meet at all, if at the end of the day we just show ourselves some memes that we could just send ourselves? Always the same lyre. We immediately write to our friends what is happening to us in an exciting way. 24/7 Up to Date. You don’t have to be surprised at all if you then have nothing more to talk about at a personal meeting and dive back into the pixel world out of sheer boredom. Seriously, just try not to write every little shit to your friends right away. So many of us are addicted to that little box in our pockets. You, yes, you know it too. You get the part out, see that no one has written to you, unlock it, swipe once from left to right and plug it back in. What the fuck. What the fuck. After a while on Instagram, we close the app only to reopen it immediately afterwards. We want to be so accessible to others that we forget to be there for ourselves. I have a friend who doesn’t even make his shit smartphone silent at night because “SOMETHING COULD HAVE HAPPENED”. The only thing that happens is that you had a restless sleep again because some shitty game sends you a notification at 2 a.m. just to tell you your village is being attacked. Hell no. I had the best in years this summer. I had all the notifications off, if really what was you could call me. I had so many beautiful days where I just lay on the meadow, watched the clouds and listened to the birds chirping. For the first time, I felt really alive again. Just lie there with friends and talk, enjoy the moment. Unfortunately, it has become damn difficult to experience something like this today, because we are all attached to digital shackles. One more thing, who of us has never stalked his ex-partner on Instagram? EVERY. We look to see if he already has a new relationship and feel sorry for ourselves again in the end. Crazy, why do we do this? On the Internet, we can be who we want, present ourselves as something better. We post pictures of ourselves smiling, generate likes to improve our self-esteem while sitting alone at home waiting in vain for a message that someone wants to meet us.And then? That’s right, we are silent again silent next to each other and continue to scroll through social networks. Sometimes I wish I had social media opening hours, then you would be forced to go out again and enjoy the moment. Just delete social media for a week and then download it again, you will notice that you have not missed anything. What should you miss, oh I didn’t like the picture of my friend, now the friendship is surely over. Such nonsense. Try it Dude, try it. Live the moment, live now. Peace.
