Problems faced by our youth today

The youth of today has been generally outclassed; they do not deliberate themselves to be too young to be indulged, and they are not thought to be enough old to take the responsibility on their own shoulders.

The main issue is the communication gap between them and between their elder ones, the former believing themselves to be enough old for taking their own decisions for the personal or for the social issues whereas the latter only reject to hand over this obligation to them. This leads to tempers rising high more often.

The ordinary issue of a person faces at this stage of life is peer pressure. They are pressurizing by either challenges or by the threats into doing what one would avoid instead. Few people are naturally competitive as well as they struggle to act in ways that could assist them in settling their 'image' either to impress or threaten others. This can be observed in their waywardness of their elders who try to advise them with the help of their experiences which these young ones lack at the moment however fail miserably.

Six out of ten people are normally short-tempered as well as rude in their response. Numerous hesitate in taking their parents' advice in various issues, especially in the issues which are according to them are very modest and that’s why they land up in taking the wrong decision. The young generation of today is more outgoing, more overgenerous in their requirements while less into their studies; they are intractably leading a luxurious life and know less of the advantages of hard work without fitness.

Moreover in our society, inappropriately, there are a lot of youngsters who cannot even afford to go to the school. They remain uneducated as well as are shockingly and cruelly forced into child labour when they have to to be learning and enjoying life just like the other individuals of their age group. Large number of them faces issue while some of them also lost their life or limb, doing jobs which are meant for the older people.

Occasionally, discrimination against people of the opposite gender, caste, creed as well as the religion makes them a target of emotional sickness. They have low confidence and they can be easily predominated through the views of other individuals.

Last however not the least, are the so-called love matters which have vividly been on rise since the past few years though end mostly in the damaging of lives either by suicide or through the eternal unhappiness which condenses them mentally unfit. The depression conquers them and only few of them are capable to cope up along with it as another facet of the ups and downs of their life.

We should remember that the more we remain down-to-earth and enjoy life as it is meant to be the better we stay for the rest of our lives. We should always remain conscious of where our actions can lead us in our near future. However, it is believed that everything is preordained in our lives, and we still are accountable for our all deeds as God has provided us a brain to think before doing anything that is right or wrong.

It can be rightly said that this age is the toughest phase of life and each and every one of us have to pass this stage of life. Hence, we should take note of our mistakes when there is time left and even if failure come up to us, overcome it along with the complete power as John Keats said “Don't be disheartened by a failure. It can be a positive experience for you. Failure is, in a way, the freeway to success, in as much as every sighting of what is false leads us to search intently after what is right, and every fresh experience points out some form of mistake which we shall later carefully avoid.”
