Is technology eroding our relationships?

This new piece of artwork from Banksy says so much about relationships today.

In one hand, the modern smartphone is an amazing device that keeps us all connected, available and organized, among many other things.

On the other hand, it can be a barrier to meaningful, distraction-free dialog with people you are actually present with.

Lately I’m becoming increasingly frustrated with its place in my day-to-day life. It’s often more of a hindrance and a distraction, rather than helping me achieve more (or in fact anything).

Has anyone else been feeling like this recently?  What steps have you taken to regain focus on the here and now?
