THE PARADOX OF GEN Y
We pay more attention to people online, than those sitting in front of our faces.
We reach for our phones and check how many likes before we even get out of bed.
We have hundreds of "friends" (on Facebook at least), but very few who know us for real.
We take a million selfies, but deep down we don't even like what we see.
We work more, but enjoy less.
We have big opinions, but little understanding.
We have more things, but less contentment.
We talk a lot, but forget to listen.
We take more photos, but have less memories.
We prefer quantity over quality, especially when it comes to people.
We want instant gratification, instead of hard work and commitment.
We want big weddings, but don't care if the marriage makes it.
We post photos online, "ily love you mum", but don't bother to call.
We like every picture about ending world hunger, but don't give a dollar to feed starving children.
We have access to endless information, yet go online to watch funny videos and argue with strangers.
We have no time to study, but demolish the latest season of GoT.
We love inspirational quotes, but forget to apply them.
We have the degrees, but can’t find the jobs.
We have big egos, but low self-esteems.
We are blessed, but need that little bit more to be happy.
We tell God to get stuffed and get angry when He's silent.
We have thrown away our moral compass, and wonder why we feel so lost.
We want to change the world, but we’re not willing to change ourselves.
Every day our value is in play; how many likes, shares, views. Who am I? We're always waiting for others to tell us, "you are enough".
We ARE SO AFRAID OF BEING A NO ONE, THAT we WILL DO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING TO BE A SOMEONE.
We're not all bad. We are a seedbed of potential.
If we could just get our eyes of ourselves and on to others, we could leave the world better than we found it.
