Losing your phone and yourself

 lovelylucy (@luckylucy) 7 years, 4 months ago

So two nights ago I went out with some friends and after copious amounts of alcohol and some joints , I reached in my bag and my iphone 5 wasn’t there . My first reaction was to just freak and look everywhere , I looked but It didn’t help. It had gone . So the hard part is now , trying to adjust to life without a phone . How and where to start?
I am sure its achievable and better for me in the long run if I don’t have a phone for the summer but I miss having it and it feels like a piece of me is also missing .

I realize as a society , we are far too consumed in our phones and scared if not apprehensive of communicating face to face , I don’t know but I hope losing that phone was the best thing that’s ever happened to me and opens me to the real world and things that actually matter rather than mindlessly checking our social networks wasting time .
So any tips or advice on how to stop feeling bad about it and moving on and being active and just not caring about a phone would be appreciated , Thaankyou.

Well a phone is good for emergencies if you live alone but beyond that one can survive without.
I’m one who actually practices not using my phone often by not purposely having on myself . I think many are felling the social backlash of high tech social media etc .
I feel if your on you phone texting or posting on FB your not living in the NOW and possibly missing so new REAL life opportunities. I hear a lot of people saying the feel lonely . I actually have a friend who’s in his 50’s NEVER been on the internet and only uses his cell phone to make phone calls otherwise leaves it off .He has more real friends he actually spends time with in person then anyone I know . I advocate to anyone to go phoneless when out in public ,lock it in you car ,turn it off if you have it on yourself ,meet some new people ,experience the now.
