Why is our generation depressed?

Because we are pressured into thinking that even doing our best is not enough. We are labeled lazy, but the truth is, we face the problems that older generations made and expect us to solve them.

Because we are still haunted by the prejudices of the past. We fight for recognition, equality, justice- all things that should have been given way before.

Because the society lets us believe that shallow things matter. Fame, appearance- we cannot escape judgment especially on the height of technology. We question ourselves when we do not meet its standards.

Because relationships nowadays mean so little. Forming friendships is like being in a poker game where you wouldn’t know one’s intention until it’s too late. Commitment is fragile, built on sand instead of cement, so it fades away quickly.

Because we were taught to hide our weaknesses instead of embracing them. Everybody is going to use it against you. Everybody is going to judge you.

Because dreams no longer mean happiness. They also need to be convenient, not just for yourself, but for everyone else related to you in a way who can benefit.

Because hope is already tied with too many broken promises, mistrust, and shattered expectations. We are so used to the idea of hopelessness that we make jokes about how foolish it is to even have the slightest hope in the simplest things.

Why is our generation depressed?

Because we are tired of fighting battles that have been fought for generations.

Imagine, just imagine.. how the next generations will be.

      This is an interesting point of view, and well-written. Thank you for sharing. (You may like to change the image/photo with one that is clearer though to make the article more attractive and to please HubPages.)
