The Emptiness That One Feels After Losing A Cell Phone

Many of us have become so dependent upon that little palm-sized three ounce piece of technology we call our smartphones, that just the mere thought of losing it, we’d go out of our minds. It wasn’t all that long ago when we didn’t have to worry about keeping up with something that has become an integral part of our lives.

I’m not all that dependent upon my phone like a lot of people I know, but I do count on it to get calls and to remember all of my phone numbers. One day last week I went to make a call during the day and realized I didn’t have it. I knew I left home with it because I had unplugged it from the charger but it didn’t make it to my desk where it sits during the day. I actually had that loss feeling come over me, not because I could get on the internet or see what was happening on Facebook, I was more concerned about the phone numbers that it contained. It has taken me a long time to accumulate those numbers and I wouldn’t know where to begin to get them back. The phone eventually showed up in my daughters room (where I had left it before leaving the house that morning) and all was great.

If you ever lose your phone, you do feel a sense of loss and disconnect. You start noticing how often you reach for it to check it and when you’re with your friends you’ll especially notice it, especially if your friends and co-workers are so connected like the girl in the following video.
