IS IT OK?


Is it OK that I check my phone over 150 times a day while I am at work, with my loved ones, driving, trying to fall asleep? Is it OK that I no longer sleep, but instead, shop online for things I will never buy? Is it OK that I cannot be one second without my phone without panicking?

Is it OK that I read my newsfeed 100 times a day, but do nothing to make anything on Earth any better? Is it OK that I no longer have the attention span to read a book, an article, a long email?

Is it OK that I cannot focus on one thing at a time anymore, and that a visceral and repulsive boredom overcomes me when I try? Is it OK that I feel like shit and that the internet is my only salve? Is it OK that I am more connected than ever, but I feel more alone then ever?


Is it OK? Is it?
