Technology – an asset or an obstacle?
Technology is a very popular topic nowadays, one that causes many discussions about its importance in our lives. Has it helped our lives or has it caused more problems?
Firstly, I need to point out that technology is so advanced that it is really difficult or impossible to live without it. It has given us some very good gadgets and electrical equipments. In my opinion, life would be worse without electricity, or without a fridge, which preserves our food and without which it would be impossible to live healthily.
Although it helps our lives, technology can cause some problems too. The mobile phone is a good example of it. It really helps us, but if we can't establish a limited amount of usage time, we'll be addicted to it and won't be able to have a balanced and proper life.
In conclusion, I would say that, from my point of view, technology won't ruin your life if you don't overuse it.
