I’m fine with television but I think that a lot of us use it as a major source of escape in our lives and come to rely on it for our emotional needs. This isn’t what television should be for.
Therefore, I have decided to only watch tv when I can do it with another person. I see watching tv shows and movies as a valuable social experience but in excess, and in isolation, it can become a twisted form of self-pleasure.
Television shows and movies are made to be visually enticing and attractive emotionally. That’s why they can be so addictive. Just don’t let your television be your best friend. There are a lot of real people around you who can do a much better job.
