Welcome to The Half-Baked Bloggers Consortium. Today’s topic is “Our generation” chosen by me. Please take the time to view the members’ blogs just as you viewed mine in order to get different perspectives about the same topic.

Our generation was born into one that was mostly concerned about their version of materialistic stacks of priorities; like how to provide, make it easier for their kids and what to get in return. They reshuffled preferences, expected perfection regardless of how many ended up forgetting about the basics of upbringing kids which led to changing the whole entity of the next generation.
I’m not sure what led them to all this but I only noticed how the lifestyle they chose have shaped our own pattern. So here is some of my own hasty perceptions…
Everyone is so pissed off, that once you start talking to them, they make you feel like you’re pointing your gun to their heads. We grew so angry at everything, and everyone. But since it’s unconventional to express these kind of feelings, in the right direction cause we’re not allowed to face our demons, and since we want to get even with the world, we groove our anger and channel it elsewhere. E.g. those who’re consistently, obsessively angry at the state cause it’s easier to fight something that won’t fight back. Or those who radically rebel, cause they’ve been fed up of their lives with all the shackles that have been tying them down. Or those who just lose it and let it eat them alive.
People are created unique, every human is not like the other one. But for some unknown reason we’re urged to become copies of each others. We didnt have someone to tell us that we have to be who we are, all what our families cared about was “kalam l nas” and “l nas hat2ol eh”. And regardless of how we feel about it, we grow adapting to whatever and whoever says just to meet their expectations and fulfill their standards on how humans should be, and look like. Get into this school, live here, hang out there, wear this, talk like that, take this off, and get this state of art machine like everyone else, even if you don’t need it.
They wanted copies and they got copies, but they’re stuck in this maze with their double-standards, racing each other when non of them really know how to win.
We grow with double the responsibilities, zero experience. We have too much insecurities and issues and we got no one to understand. We have trust issues and more importantly we might find hard time trusting or believing in ourselves. Not to mention our constant disappointments by everything and everyone and how that led to a major despair and in some cases they lost the will to keep on living.
We got everything easy and we don’t wanna exert any kind of effort to learn or to educate ourselves. We were bullied into this college and bullied to work in this career but whenever we fail it’s an evil eye. We act all open-minded and transparent but we actually can’t practice any of it unless we agree. And that’s our ignorance that comes with arrogance.
Somehow everything got deformed and we stopped relating to the basics. We don’t know if whatever we’re doing is right anymore. We give in to bullying and are reluctant to fairness.
