ARE WE A CURSED GENERATION? It is so dark here; I feel like we are living in the darkest age of this world. People are at the edge of hopelessness with their life’s being a part of discontentment . Happiness and contentment are escaped or snatched by different means. The forceful smiles hiding the bitter tragedies, the empty eyes hiding the tormenting eyes, and the soulless souls hiding the shattered dreams. We all live in a generation where the majority of people are not satisfied from their on self’s and in what they are doing in their life. Being introverted and socially in action has now become a trend but I believe that it is another way for people to conceal their destructive lives from an unjustifiable world. I adore a saying of
St. Bernard especially in this era
It is a misery to be born, a pain to live, and trouble to die.
Yes! It is a devastating truth that is not engulfed by a majority. There are various causes of our generation being discontented that are not considered and noticed commonly. Here is a closer look at some reasons that reflect why we can be called a cursed generation:
CURSED GENERATION AND PRESSURE OF MATERIALISM:
Today our life preferences and priorities all are revolving around materialistic approaches and we are willingly being naïve about this harsh reality of our society. These artificial living and beauty standards are arousing a wave of discontentment and misery. As the world is gaining power in the charge of technologies and deploying them, every individual is striving to fulfill those mimetic desires that are just an abstract of fantasy or manipulated by a certain community which ends up in self discouragement. The means of life today is just about worshiping our imaginary shallow manipulated greed and desires that haunt us day and night. I am not saying that one should not achieve their dreams or targets but we should only stop fantasizing about life on biased conceptions and following the fake standards established by society. In my opinion, I will categorize this as the main cause of our discontented generation.
FAILIURES AND DISSAPOINMENTS:
Loss of ability to deal with failures and multiple disappointments in life can be introduced as another cause of our discontented generation. The majority of us accept way too much from life that when life deceives us or does not go in the way that we have planned, we turn hopeless and have no power to walk over it. The criticism of society and their bogus standards of success also plays a massive role in this regard. Many innocent souls give up on their life’s just because they can’t face their displeasing fate. To continue your life and surviving it, one should understand the fact that failures are a part of life and it depends on you to tackle the upcoming hindrances and misfortunes in your own way. Whether, to gain a lifetime experience from it or to discourage yourself for the rest of your life
The roots of life today are founded on self-confidence and self-assurance, for which every individual is going through an immense struggle to shape a better person out of themselves. But there are some people with a spoiled mindset who are not willing to realize this fact and desire to get everything instantly in life without making any effort so as a consequence they become prey to self-disappointments and are also inclined to interfere with others life out of jealousy or insecurities. This specific group of unsecured personalities is a threat to worlds peace as they are always seeking to avenge themselves by creating a bitter life for others while mishandling their own lives. It takes a blink of an eye for anyone to be like this. Just think for a second about yourself that if unknowingly you have become a member of this community and have lost confidence in yourself. Try to secure yourself from any kind of misleading’s and just focus on the goals in life.
LACK OF CONCERN:
Many times, in life we neglect the purpose of being human and the spirit of humanity. Sometimes we are unaware of the fact that the person we are teasing, bullying, or even harassing is already going through a lot in life and we are making it more difficult to survive. Often in life, we know that someone among our relatives or friends is having back-to-back mishaps in their lives and they need a shoulder to lean on but we are hesitant to approach and console them just because it seems a little bit awkward. Nowadays we always prioritize our lives and are always reluctant to make life easier for others. Before regretting our poor decisions and priorities we have to act humanely to not be slightly responsible for anyone’s distress and miserable state.
Every third person in our society is suffering from various mental health issues in which the above-summarized causes play an enormous role which is the last cause of our discontented generation. People didn’t often perceive the reality that how they are accidentally and unwillingly being a cause of someone’s depression and mental stress. If someone is seeking a psychiatrist particularly in the societies of India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh then he/she is considered a total psycho, and they are accused of being paranoid in public. As a result, many people are not concerned to treat their mental illness and just continue with their life’s which is more depressing. Many people don’t even realize that they are suffering from any type of nervous breakdown and consider it as a seasonal dejection. These nervous disorders if are not being taken care of properly then result in the rise of suicidal temperament and when the person reaches the edge of desperation, he/she become the victim of this world by accepting death as a present.
CONCLUSION: CURSED GENERATION
We live in a world that is increasingly messy but it’s high time for each one of us to join our hands together and built this place as a mark of pleasure and peace. Being the most honorable creatures on earth we should know that difficulties and hard times are just there to haunts us but they are not powerful enough to close the way of triumph for us.
