This goes hand in hand with our culture’s need for instant gratification.
Drugs and alcohol are the most common form of self-medication. When we’re stressed or unable to handle our lives, we may turn to more intense substances.
The only question that remains is whether we’ll be remembered for being the first generation to accept a more logical and rational take on love or the generation that gave up on it altogether. The most common trend amongst Generation-Yers is our need for instant gratification.
We grew up and continue to thrive in a culture that allows us instant access to just about anything.
If we want food, we have it delivered with the click of a few buttons or we walk a block or two and grab dinner.
If we are bored, we have endless distractions in the form of phone apps.
Most people have never had a good understanding of love, just a poor interpretation of it.
Generation-Y seems to be the first generation moving away from conventional takes on romantic, loving relationships.
If we need directions or a question answered, it only takes us a couple of seconds.
Such convenience is entirely a modern-day perk — previous generations never experienced anything even remotely close to it.
Ever wonder what our generation will be known for in the decades to come? There are so many great things we could be remembered for, but if history has taught us anything, it’s the negative that tends to last the test of time, not the positive.
My greatest worry is our generation will be looked at as the generation that gave up on love. The generation that forgot how to love — which is ridiculous.
