Why Do People Feel Isolated from Each Other and Solutions

Modern people have a feeling that they are becoming more and more isolated from each other though it is believed that the development of information technology has made the world smaller. There are three reasons for this.

Firstly, modern people have greater tensions so that they have less time to communicate with each other. More and more people are living in urban areas, where life is in a quick rhythm. Due to fierce competition, city dwellers have to be hardworking in order to keep up with the steps of city life. Everybody is busy all the time. Work pressures deprive them of a casual way of life. Moreover, living in apartments in different blocks, people are isolated from each other. It is not convenient for them to meet each other freely.

Secondly, the wide use of telephone and overwhelming emergence of the internet prevent modern people from seeing each other quite often. In the past, when some festivals comes, the way people to send congratulations is to meet each other, to sit together and to talk or they can write letters and send postcards. Nowadays people can simply send an email or make a phone call to send good wishes in a few minutes. However, sitting before the computer screen is not the same thing as meeting, talking and writing. People are loosing the pleasure of writing and talking and hospitality towards each other. In some sense, people are becoming mechanic.

Thirdly, modern people's spare time are occupied by various kinds of entertainments and activities. In the past, meeting and talking to others is a fundamental way to get information. However, today TV programs are very attractive. People can just stay at home and knows clearly what is happening in the world. Therefore, people have few chances to meet each other and thus a feeing of isolation arises.

There are some solutions to the present situation. First of all, people need to be fully aware of the fact that the modern ways of communication cannot take the place of the traditional ones. Sending emails cannot have the same effect as writing or face-to-face talk. Traditional ways should be encouraged and people can write letters as much as possible. Secondly, activities held in one neighbourhood can create a warm atmosphere among people. Thirdly, the people need to know how to enjoy life, which is a new and popular idea in modern society.
