Communication. This generation simply refuses to communicate. Or maybe they can’t? It’s appalling. Communication to a relationship is like oxygen, without it, it dies. Two things can destroy a relationship, unrealistic expectations, and poor communication. Actually make that three things, lying on impulse is one of them. You’re only allowed to lie twice a year, after which you have to wait for a new year to renew. No relationship can last without proper communication. And you cannot be the only one communicating. Reminds me of the guy who faked being dumb to avoid talking to his wife for years. A king.
Loveless. That’s why it’s harder to find anybody now. Everybody is catching a cruise. For them, affection must involve PDA and you must be involved with the individual. Whatever happened to buying me a new car? (As friends though). Everybody has a heart of stone. Nobody acknowledges feelings. Everything is destined to end in premium tears so nobody tries anymore. Cheat and I cheat back generation. Idiots. Personally, I’m intentional about anything I do. If I’m into you, I’ll tell you from the get-go. If you start acting like a goat, it’s your loss.
Depressed. This generation is just sad. Depression became something to be desired. In addition to depression, everyone seems to have lost their morals. Anything literally goes. They have created a hook-up culture. When someone does inevitably disagree with what their sexual morals entail, they become very, very offended. Parents continuing to do their children’s washing-up and household chores is another reason why they never learn to get a grip. Selfish, lazy victims who take offense at everything.
Savagery. Everybody is savage. You have to be a special type of moron to make fun of your teachers. If you were that smart, why did anyone think it necessary to pay all those fees for you to have a session with them? Someone trips and falls heavily on the ground, and rather than help the person up, your default reaction is to bring out your phone to film? Making fun of your significant other, making them feel inadequate will earn you a seat at Lucifers’ table.
Artificial. They care so much about their looks. Why are you so bothered about the clothes you wear? You’re practically homeless! I personally feel more parents should practice kicking their materialistic kids out of the house randomly. Plastic surgery used to be something that only the celebs did and were something almost laughable just a few years ago. Now it is so readily available to any “normal” person. Now they are reaching for the knife – while proclaiming self-love and body positivity.
Entitled. This generation believes that just because they exist and breathe air, the world owes them something. The answer to this problem is simple – people will always disagree with you, just like how people will disagree with this post in general. If you can’t take the heat, don’t put it out there to the world. If you’re strong enough, then maybe you’re not a snowflake after all. This generation loves to use the free speech card and claim it as part of their values. In reality, they only believe in free speech when it agrees with them.
Opinionated. We did not inherit the silence of our mothers. Hence we talk too much. This generation loves to gossip. Everybody is in everybody else business. Do I want to hear about the woman with three teenage pregnant daughters? No! Am I intrigued by the story and want to hear the nitty-gritty details? Well, yeah! And that’s why reality TV shows gross so well. Everybody wants to put their nose into someone else’s business. It is why the Kardashian franchise exists. It is why there are Big Brother spin-offs in every country. A show dedicated to celebrating foolishness.
Offended. One of the main issues in this day and age is cyberbullying which leads to so many more conflicts like suicide and school shootings, which cause even more conflicts. My solution to cyberbullying? Just walk away from the screen. But seriously, you can’t possibly be offended at everything? Truly, social media is making this never-ending chain reaction of negatives. I can wake up and say that I love cornflakes, and some idiot will shout back at me that I’m putting oats down. Next thing you know Oat Lives Matter is trending on Twitter. Faux outrage.
Bandwagonism. Nobody is even pretending to be unique anymore. Be careful when you blindly follow the masses. Sometimes the M is silent. We get on the bandwagon in all sorts of ways. Some minor, others major. Some of you are sheep when it comes to opinions. Don’t feel stupid if you don’t like what everybody pretends to love. Mainstream music is just some watered down trash. A number of rappers calling themselves baby jumping around with pants below their waists. Listen to the old good shit.
Shamelessness. What I hate most about this generation is the shamelessness. You can’t even make people feel bad for being obese anymore. Good-natured bullying has been overtaken by snowflakes on the internet preaching acceptance. They have a comeback for everything. They admit all their failures and refuse to change or improve. They’re bad at something? That’s okay. It’s not the end of the world. We all die eventually, hardworking or lazy. In the end, as lousy as this generation is…
their parents were worse.
