I have thought a lot over the past days about what is wrong with this generation of mine. One of the things that struck me is the rate at which there seems to be a solution for things which are somewhat normal. We have now butt lifters, padded bras and silicon ish, fake abs simulator, enhancing pills, fake hair and there seems to be a surgery procedure for enhancing one body feature or another. A lot of girls on my Instagram look alike to me now because they all have makeup on fleek with highlights and all. Originality is lost!
Don’t get me wrong there’s nothing wrong with doing these things to feel good about yourself but, not to satisfy society or to change someone’s prejudiced opinion about you. Society is so quick to judge in this generation. What if that fat girl started eating out of depression? What if the slutty girl had no decent parents to tell her how to live right?
I write this post with deep pain in my heart. I mean I have always known the world to be an ugly place to live in sometimes but these days it is like my generation is just shrewd and all.
A generation in which having sex before marriage is seen as no big deal.
A generation in which cheating is seen as an achievement.
In which going to church is just a habit, not exactly a form of service to God.
In which wearing skimpy clothes is seen as style and there’s no regard for covering nakedness.
A generation in which a man beating a woman is seen as putting her in place and not physical abuse.
In which you can’t even have a proper conversation without sexual reference being made.
I had a talk with a friend of mine some weeks ago and while we were talking, this trend of ‘leading girls on’ was brought up. He gave an example of a female friend which people thought he was dating and he wasn’t. Even the girl thought they were dating. Amused at the statement, I asked him “Did you in any way do or say things that might have given her the impression that you’re interested?” He thought about this and honestly answered yes.
That is one of the problem with this generation. People should make their intentions clear. If you want to date a girl, tell her. If you’re not, don’t lead her on. Tell her before it goes too far. Some people don’t seem to understand the extent to which certain happenings mar personalities and trust. For a girl like that which my friend had that issue with, she might find it difficult trusting another guy after the episode hence making her emotional life complicated. They don’t even talk as well as they used to. Ask some guys why they do it? Just for fun they’d say.
I don’t exactly understand why some things happen or why people do some things but there is a lot wrong with this generation.
What’s your opinion about this?
Do tell a friend to tell a friend to tell another friend to check this blog out.
