Have you ever wondered how us, “young” ones are doing? This isn’t an ‘article‘ for anyone born before 1997 by the way.
My thoughts are basically as follow.. how come we are the ones who get stuck most often?
You see during the majority of my years growing up I have been struggling. With everything and nothing. And so has most of my friends and their friends and other people in their surroundings. And all ot those people have one thing in common. They are either born in 1997 or later.
This makes me wonder? If our generation is the one that is easily influenced and easily disregarded?
You see most of us don’t manage to accomplish that many great things without a huge amount of struggle. We tend to over analyse things, over think things and most of well we believe it is just critical thinking that is “helpful”. We try to please everyone including ourselves without feeling any guilt. And we often fail at this. As well failing to complete and achieve things. The generation born before us, 1996 and older have things figured out. They will always be more “grown up”. They will always be regarded as somehow superior. “Older & wiser” “more experienced” yet they are to experience what it’s like to be us. To be stuck.
Simple things as, achieving those academic qualifications or passing any kind of test. We are stressed due to many things. Our world is very tech based, we are moving forward fast, (to some very slow) And our mind is torn between being selfish and focusing on our selves by putting our own interest ahead of everyone just as the generations a before us. Or we could try and please everyone? Most of us believe that it is our duty to be different, to change the world, to make an impact, to have leave something good behind when we leave the living world.
But how come we get judged and critized whenever there is something wrong? That isn’t of our doing? We are the generation that is easy to blame. Because we don’t talk back. Because we have to respect those who are “older and wiser”. We do our best. Yet it is never enough.
There isn’t much we can do. But I believe there is one thing.
It is time for us to be selfish. It is time for us to focus on doing our thing. Without allowing any outside influence to penetrate our mind and poison our soul.
Because we are young, we can be dumb, reckless and selfish. And we actually have every right to be. As long as we don’t harm ourselves our anyone else. We are not doing anything wrong.
