I am in a family group chat with my uncles, aunts, and even grandparents. I think it’s great that we have a way of communicating even if we’re far away. Not too long ago, I would receive a call from every single person in that group chat. Now I only get a text message. The only one that calls is my dad. Even though I try to call as many of my closest family members and friends, more than likely I will just text them. Not because I feel offended or hurt that no one called me. But because as you have just stated, it’s just easier to send a quick text than to find the time to call and have a conversation. Which is sad. Ironically enough, we have been connected to simply be disconnected from each other.
