It’s obvious that times are changing. Millennials have grown up around MySpace,Facebook,Twitter, Instagram and everything else.
The internet has closed us off to the world.
I look at kids today, and instead of playing in the bushes out in the neighborhood or making mud pies, kids are inside playing with their tablets and watching Kids Netflix.
Is there something wrong with this?
Not necessarily. Times are always changing. Technology is taking over our lives.
But because of technology we are loosing something within our oursleves and souls. Something called passion.
Today, there are very few of us who are passionate about life and about our own opinions. i’d love to say that I am one of those passionate people, but even I only have my moments.
Before technology, people were extremely proactive about fighting for what they believed in.
In 1910, the women’s suffrage movement caught fire and women from around the country came together. Even though at that time spreading the word was not nearly as easy as it today, they still came together and fought for the women’s vote.
Then in the 1960’s, whites and blacks from around the country came together and protested for equal rights for everyone.
Where is the passion in our love lives?
Millennial’s are also known for the “Netflix and Chill” nights and FXckboys or sidechicks. Oh the marvelous one night stands. Or the oh we are just “talking” even though that really means we are dating.
We are scared of what the other person is feeling and avoid commitment. So we just nonchalantly mess around. I can’t say that I haven’t been tempted to this distant type of relationship.
Although this “distant relationship” is almost an oxymoron? It’s actually a very “close” relationship.
So what happened to us? We suck at being passionate about things.
We are too busy worrying about what our crush or ex is seeing on social media.
We are too busy trying to make a living.
We are too busy taking pictures to brag to everyone.
Too busy trying to pay off school loans.
Too busy dealing with insignificant things.
If we can’t be passionate about the things that matter, then how are we supposed to live a healthy life.
If we can’t be passionate about the issues that will effect our lives, then we can’t be happy….
You can’t be a fXckboy or side chick and be happy, because I swear one day you will fall in love with the person you are just “talking” to, and regret you didn’t believe in the bigger picture.
I would rather fall in love and make sure I told them. If they dont accept me, well at least I wasn’t just a fXckgirl that had no feelings.
WE ARE HUMAN. WE HAVE FEELINGS.
I don’t care if you are a boy or girl. We all have feelings.
Don’t loose your passion.
Be proactive and engage.
