Our generation has completely lost touch. This is due to, but not limited to cell phones and social media. Compassion, vulnerability, and healthy communication skills have become obsolete. We are always on these tiny little metal contraptions with lights inside of them because we don’t wanna be alone. We fear looking like a “loner” and we don’t know how to just be a stoic human, and sit in one place and think. We’re always thinkin of meaningless, almost detrimental things. How many likes did I get on that photo, did anyone favorite my tweet? And when some people do have a spark of emotion or feeling, they directly go to twitter and tweet about it. Even I am guilty of this. Our emotions and lives are exploited by the Internet, and that creates a false self. People think they know you based off who you project on social networks, and which is 99.99% of the time a facade we put out to seem “cool” or “interesting” or “unique” which is ironic because we in reality are just acting like everyone else. You may not even intentionally be doing this, this might be subconscious. So many kids are depressed now a days because they have no one to talk to because everyone is so absorbed into putting out their false self in hopes of other people finding them intriguing. We are constantly comparing ourselves to others, which makes us feel like we aren’t good enough, which makes us feel like we aren’t worthy of love, compassion, attention.
