The Most Important Things

The most important things in life aren't things. Anthony J. D'Angelo(1).png
Right from our birth till death, we value the things more i n our lives whereas it's the presence of other people that makes our life valuable. Without people, the life completely loses its meanings and that's why umans are termed as social animals.

So, why is it so that things gets more attention in our life than the real things that are people around us that help us chrish our lives? I think it's been just a few decades that humans had more time for each other and their lives were happier than today's humans. Why they had more time was that because technology was not this much advanced as it's today and things were at their right place.

The commercialisation of everything has made everything around us a commodity and technology that was supposed to make our lives simple and easy actually enslaved us by Internet and Smartphones. So, now it seems like 24 hours a day is a short period to do all the activities that we used to do in far less time before the advent of these things and still could manage to have plenty of time not only for our families but for our friends.

There is primarily something wrong with the direction the most advanced technology and its leaders have.

Can we fix it?

Decades ago, women did not work that often work. They were at home taking care of the children and the household. When the man came home, everything was clean, tidy and the kids were mostly happy. And then it was really a end of working day. And the woman had time for everything. Today after work is worked until the night in the household, even if there are many technical home appliances, it takes a lot of time to do everything. The work of women is not appreciated because men do not see it, because men often go to work early in the morning and come home late. Much could be done here. The men should for example, do not work that long.
