Immersion or Addiction

Ever since I set up a blog through Word Press, I find myself checking it constantly and writing a blog for the daily word prompt. I have been challenged by someone that it is an addiction and in fact any screen time can be an addiction. It numbs my feelings and I avoid tasks that need to be done. It also keeps me from spending time in relationships with other people.

I have to confess that for me it is an addiction. When I am writing a blog, I am quite immersed in it and the same is true for other types of screen time. I ignore my relationships and responsibilities, which leads to guilt and sometimes shame. That leads to more screen time, because I don’t like those feelings.

How about you? Do you think screen time is a form of addition? Are you so immersed in it that you neglect relationships and responsibilities? What steps do you need to take to keep your life in balance. Think about it. It may change how you do life.

One thought on “Immersion or Addiction

  1. Great thoughts. And much like anything in life, we can make something good or not so good. It all depends on how we use it. There was a time, years ago, that I was immersed so much into my work that it ruled my life. I didn’t see it until my family started pointing it out to me. I then began separating my work and personal life more.
    Immersion is an ” all in” much like my baptism when I was young. I now focus more on my spiritual life and leave the rest where it belongs. 😀
    Nice post!
