Unwelcome advice


Focus today’s post on the contrast between two things. The twist? Write the post in the form of a dialogue.

– You are spending too much time at the computer.

– What do you care? It’s my life

– I’m just saying It’s not good being all the time doing only one thing. You’ll end obsessed.

– That’s my problem, not yours.

– Anyway. what are you doing all that time on-line?

– What I want

– I’m concerned. Tell me something.

– You don’t have to. I’m old enough to know what I’m doing.

– It’s not good to have only one activity. As I told you, you can become obsessed or even get addicted. It’s important to diversify. I only want to help. What about to exercise every day? Any chance?

– Nope. I don’t need your help. I have a lot of diversification in my on-line activity. I have my blog, my chats, my movies, my music, I surf the Internet to stay informed I buy things, I have everything I need.

– If you don’t need me, why did you come to see me?

– You’re my psychologist. You told me to come. Here I am.
