Why our generation is beautiful
I don't know why people criticize our generation so much, even the people of our generation wish they were a part of the old school crowd. I mean honestly, even i find myself feeling that i wasn't meant for this generation. I mean, sure we do have our flaws, we get lazy, we feel too much, we are too stuck into our virtual worlds and what not. But has anybody looked at the beautiful sides of it? I mean when sharing feeelings is difficult, we rely on memes. We can literally have conversations like *meme*, '' this is so me'',' 'I'm dying'', '' same''
I mean making humor out of our problems is a good way to actually express it out, it makes us feel like we aren't the only ones. Ever had a bad day? And then you just binge watched your favorite tv show or just kept scrolling on your Instagram, looking at those memes till you actually felt better? People are surely competitive in this time, but i have actually seen so many people actually lifting other people up, rather than putting them down, we don't discourage, we try not to judge, people have different kinds of expression of freedom and all of us try to accept that
Ever seen a girl breaking up? No she's never alone, she has the whole girl gang up exchanging screenshots, putting up with the drama all night, or those washroom conversations, you all know what I'm talking about. Even if we are dying inside, we all know how to put up that chin high, giggle and talk to people like it doesn't matter.
All of us genuinely want to capture the memories, i mean imagine, 10 years from now, looking at your snapchat memories and cherishing the great times you had,remembering the drunk parties or the Morning coffee with your favorites, i think it's beautiful to have good times of your life captured somewhere.
I hear this thing a lot from others, that this generation is so depressed and lazy, like honestly i feel like people of earlier generation had major issues too but no one uttered a word about it, and here we are, we take a stand, we break the rules of tabboos, we talk about the things which people used to hesitate to talk about and what not. We write, we draw, we indulge into art, and we know there's so much more to life than materialistic things. I have actually seen people creating magic with their artistic sides.
Everybody puts so much pressure on us, to be perfect, to act in a certain manner which bounds us. We aren't just lazy, we are a bunch of ambitious people who know that they deserve a break time to time. We know how to get through breakups, tough times and everything else. The best part is we all embrace that, we all help each other in ways we don't know. Also, the virtual world which we criticize could be helpful. Sometimes because of the social world,one little conversation with a stranger ends up changing our perspective. We actually stay touch with our old friends or friends miles apart in all the ways this social media world allows us to
So let's embrace the lazy, sleepy people we are, full of feelings, memes,art, poems and snapchat filters who believe in breaking the rules, exploring the unexplored and have a desire to be happy. Cheers to us :')
