With internet these days, advanced technology such as smartphones has helped keep us connected. Social media provides us a platform to be in touch with our friends, lovers and family, and even strangers.
A man from the Philippines shared his story of a young couple he happened to see and it is definitely worth reading.
“I watched him quietly as he sat across her while eating his dinner. I couldn’t help but overhear. He was fully engaged, laughing at her jokes, and listening intently to her stories. She looked at him as she ate her pancakes and giggled at his jokes.
It was a heartwarming sight to behold in the middle of a crowded fast food outlet. Oblivious and insulated from the sounds around him, only her stories and the sound of her voice mattered.
“Ang cute ninyo,” I couldn’t help but tell him as I was about to leave. He grinned from ear to ear. A young man so in love. They shared a meal twice a day, he told me, it was now breakfast in her corner of the world. They had been apart for two years now, and always looked forward to beginning and ending their day with one another.
Next year, he would finally be able to follow to where she was.
Meanwhile, across their table, sat another couple, fully engaged with their phones as they finished their meal. Together, but apart.
The blessing and curse of technology can either make you, or break you. Choose wisely.”
