Hello everyone on this another beautiful, sunny day. And today I have another collaboration with my friend Ilona over at https://easydiet.blog that we would like to share with you.
Why is it not easy for a young person to live?
There is a lot of pressure on young people today, I think more than in previous generations. There is pressure to be perfect in everything. Pressure to look perfect, to have expensive clothes, drive an expensive car, have a large expensive house or apartment.
They need to have the top job, or nearly so, in whatever place they work, and it has to be right away. If they don’t have all of this then they are considered failures. This pressure comes in many ways, through peers, social media (especially celebrity sites), the internet in general, at school, advertising, and even from family.
And not being able to fit this mould that has been created by our society leads many young people to give up completely. Then they often turn to alcohol and drugs which just destroys their lives. I believe that with the right encouragement, most of these young people would not have given up at all.
It is not easy for young people to live because society imposes lifestyle and values on them. They are subject to great demands for a great future. The majority of society thinks that every person has to finish school, university, and family. Only when you have a solid base under your feet can you relax, travel and have fun.
And that’s what you want right now. Therefore, there is a desire to rebellion, to fight against the established order, and to prove their truths. But the real fighters are only the most courageous. He hates the established routine of life, the school, the city where he lives. Thus, the over-expectations of the public, with regard to young people, are dissatisfied, the desire to oppose.
It is difficult for anyone to find their place in the world.
Well, that’s it for this time everyone, I hope you have enjoyed your time here with us today, it’s always nice to have you here. Enjoy the remainder of your day and God bless!
Steve and Ilona.
