Blog # 16 – Cell Phone – Connection Builder or Blocker?

Believe it or not, there was once a time when we did not have cell phones. And during that time, the stereotype for someone who wanted to block out another person was the individual who would barricade behind a newspaper. Today, something similar happens. Two individuals can be talking. A cell phone plays a tune and one of them cuts from one conversation and immediately begins another with the person calling.

In pre-cell phone times, when two people were unable to relate, they sat uncomfortably in a restaurant unable to converse. Today, they both simply call or text another person and check out of the relationship at hand.

A device designed for communication can enhance 1-1 precious connections. Being present in person or on the phone gifts us with communications that support connections.
