Does our busy life style hinders our social relationships

We are living in 21st century and this is marked with great innovation and achievements. We have stepped into mars, have social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter to share and connect with our friend and families. Everything has evolved over a period of time. Now we are busy in our life schedule and don’t have time for social relationships so such innovation. Facebook was a big hit because people busy schedule in their life doesn’t allow them for the same. This has reduced our social presence physically while virtually we are connected to people poles apart.

Social relationship is the most important part for us as a community to move on. This increase the mutual love and respect and you know what is happening around you. It is stronger than any virtual relationship in any of social networking sites. The current scenario in which we live have less social interaction. We don’t know what is happening at the next seat of our cubicle at office or your neighbor. This has removed one of the essential traits of being human beings. We as human beings have always maintained our social relationship and moved on in life. Our busy schedule of office or work doesn’t permit us to have social bonding with friends. In some worst case scenario we see people are not able to take time out for their family as well.

effect of busy lifestyle on social relationship

Lack of social relationships can have a very negative impact on society as whole. We can see the concept of nuclear family more in this century as we don’t know the meaning of personal bonding. Earlier we used to see whole big family living under one roof as they were more social being than us. Now this has reduced to casual meetings like wedding or birthdays. There is increase of old age homes also because of this. We see many divorce and relationship getting over because of our busy schedule we have forgotten how to maintain the social relationship even.

In worst case scenario people with no social relationship tends to be the more violent one. We can see the recent shootings that happened at school or any place, the person was mentally unstable and had no social bonding at all. We should be always ready to accept the change but not at cost of maintaining social relationship with people around us.
