The internet plays an important part of the lives for many people all over the world. The internet helps to provide up with a quick and efficient way to find whatever it is that we are looking for at any given time. Weather you are looking for the latest news stories, trying to see what the weather forecast will be, you are looking to make a purchase, or many other things, the internet is where millions of people look first. One main reason for this is that through the internet all of these things can be done very easily and quickly.
Now, this is a good thing because these abilities of the internet is part of what makes it such a great thing. Though like pretty much anything else out there, too much of a good thing can actually have some negative affects on our lives. So like anything else, just make sure that you don’t let too much of this good thing cause these negative affects. Despite all the great things the internet brings to us, people have lived thousands of years without it. So although it enriches our lives so much, live will work without it.
I want to make an important point here, I myself spend a little too much time on the internet so I am speaking from my own personal experiences, the experiences of many people I know as well as the countless stories that I have read and heard about (many from the internet, LOL) other people over the years.
I have seen and heard of many people who have ruined good relationships with their spouse or significant other, with their friends, with their families, with work and just about everything else you can think of because of things that had to do with the internet. Some people spend too much time on the internet and neglect those they care about, some people neglect their work duties, some neglect their school work and so on. Others get carried away and caught up spending too much money on the internet because of all the great deals they find, weather it’s on eBay, Amazon or some other online retailer or auction website.
There are virtually countless other ways you can have negative affects on your life by getting too much of this good thing, the internet. Now in no way am I saying people should stop using the internet for so many things because I believe the internet is one of man’s greatest creations and should be utilized because of this. I am just saying that taking a little time away from your computer, tablet or whatever else you are using to access the internet and go and do something else you enjoy can be a good thing.
If you have a story or thought about the internet either good or bad and would like to share it, I would love to hear about it. So feel free to leave a reply below to share your story or thought!
