Our generation’s problems
Hey guys, I am back with another blog and this one is about things that I find are problems for our generation. I have wanted to discuss this for a while but I have waited so that I could put together a better list of things. I would also love for you guys to comment below with things that you think are problems for our generation and what could be done to prevent the thing from being a problem. Let’s get right into this blog.
You end up social media constantly
Everything these days involves social media. From just going for food to having a kid or getting married there is normally something about it on social media. It’s just how people feel the need to share things from day one. I’ve been pretty lucky because I’m good at fighting the urges from social media to display everything on it but I see some people my age who have just had kids etc and there are basic photos every single day and for me, that’s just not right. I get sharing some but not super constantly.
House prices are insane
Old people do my head in when it comes to talking about buying houses or even just renting one. The cheapest I’ve seen for rent in an area that would be close to where I work was around £400 a month and even to buy a small house these days prices are through the roof. In the olden days, it was far easier to save for a house because you didn’t need to save as much in order to have enough for a deposit. Hopefully, one day it becomes easier but right now moving out of your parent’s house is harder than ever.
We are seen as snowflakes because of the fact we struggle mentally
Older people don’t always understand the fact that mental health is a big thing these days and so many of us struggle with mental health issues. We talk about so much about it but part of the problem is that we don’t have enough older heads around us to guide us in the right direction when it comes to solving our mental health problems. Speaking out about our mental health issues will not always help either because of the fact a lot of the time we aren’t understood and people just aren’t there for us.
We struggle with seeing things from others’ points of view
I think this is partly down to how social media works and how hard it is to read tone in what people say but I’ve seen so many cases where people cause arguments and fights over having different opinions. I think that is fairly embarrassing, to be honest. Instead of being like that we should be open about our opinions and show respect for each other regardless of what we think.
Buy the latest or be bullied
This one saddens me the most because it starts at such an early age. This has been a problem for as long as I remember too as it was something I had to deal with. If you didn’t have the latest fashion or phone etc you were picked on regardless of any reason for not having it even if you just weren’t interested. Not everyone has the same tastes or budget so that causes so many problems. I hope it doesn’t stay that but with how easy it is to bully through social media etc I don’t see it.
I have discussed some of the things I believe are problems for our generation. I would love to thank you for reading and supporting my blog and I’d also love for you to comments about the problems that you feel our generation has.
Have a great day.
