Are we alone?
Are we alone? Maybe. I think the bigger question is, can we survive? Loneliness can be defined as the state of being sad or upset because of no friends or company. But I think that we perceive the meaning of loneliness differently. The state of being alone has changed with the millennials. We, the millennials have evolved ourselves as cold-hearted, selfish narcissists. We may have a gazillion friends on social media but I know that we talk to a handful of them. Why is that? Why are we like this? Is this human nature? I think not. We have evolved ourselves like this. The irony of the whole thing is that despite being 7.6 billion strong, we, the millennials are lonelier than ever. What is that we are leaving behind?
Gratitude, integrity! We might de-emphasize these terms but trust me there is a lot more than just meets the eye. We do not want to practice these terms, thanks to the behavior social media subconsciously modelled us into. Now we excel in the ability to compare our lives with each other rather than appreciating our own, no wonder why we all are depressed all the time. We are more materialistic than ever. For instance, the Instagram of every millennial is fancy, as if they are living the life of their dreams but are, they really? Are they as happy as they seem on Instagram? Umm, no! And trust me when I say this, this materialism will take you nowhere. Share your happiness because HAPPINESS IS ONLY REAL WHEN SHARED.
Now I want to talk to you, yes you! Are you alone? No? Well, you can tell yourself all you want, you are alone and you know why. You ignore the people that want you and chase the people that ignore you, turns out you get no one. At the end of the day, you live in solitary wondering what went wrong. Well, what went wrong is that you did not show righteousness and gratitude towards the things that were drawn to you and when the time comes and you'll run out of gas, you will discover that you were squeezed dry and will be laying in the same coffin as mine.
So, did you survive?
