Disconnecting to Connect
I had nothing left to live for now that people no longer connect offline. I was basically a dinosaur. A generation before the need to connect digitally. So, when I saw the commercial for a way out, I knew I had to buy it.
I was surprised it came in such a tiny box. All that was inside was a red button. I took a deep breathe and then pushed it.
Everything shut down. I sat in the dark realizing how much technology I had relied on, but now I was finally free to connect to my life again.
