A Turn Around for this Generation

Our generation has lost the value of trust, the value of conversation, and small talk is the new deep. Between what is said and not meant, and what is meant but not said, most of everything is lost.

Today, we are surrounded by people who want to get blackout drunk for fun.
Today, women who don’t weigh less than 110 pounds are labeled as plus sized by society.
Today, young people get praised for disrespect.
Today, people throw away their potential to hide behind a computer for internet fame.
Today, depression is normal.
Today, it is convincible that love doesn’t exist.
Today, dating isn’t something people do. But rather it’s a term called “talking” which is 2 people that don’t want to settle down so they make each other feel good, then leave and do it all over again with someone else.
Today, lust is the prize that is sought after.

Our generation has lost the value of trust, the value of conversation, and small talk is the new deep. Between what is said and not meant, and what is meant but not said, most of everything is lost.

Social media runs lives, and nobody likes to admit it. But, this is where I believe our generation feels things that generations before have not.

Social media allows you to see every aspect of one’s life.
Their body.
Their home.
Their relationships.
Everything, social media allows you to see everything.
But, what a lot of people forget is that any picture can be staged.
And any picture can be photoshopped.

Has there always been comparison? Yes, but not how it is today.
Social media creates these goals, and these standards that make people feel they have to live up to them. Social media has corrupted good relationships because we live in a generation that assumes when things are not posted about your significant other it means they don’t want you.
Social media allows people the gateway to never have to share feelings face to face because they can do it all online.

As of right now, our generation has lost the value of trust, the value of conversation, and small talk is the new deep. Between what is said and not meant, and what is meant but not said, most of everything is lost.

But, it is likely to change.
I believe it is likely to be turned around for the better.
Social skills can be brought back.
Loyalty and trust can be restored.
Using potential for success can be formed.
The core of meaningful relationships can be brought back to surface.
And loving ourselves can be taught as well.

I don’t know about you, but this isn’t the generation I want to see.
I want to see a generation that finds enjoyment in purposeful activities.
I want to see a generation that loves people regardless of their size or circumstance.
I want to see a generation that honors and stands up for what is right.
I want to see a generation that uses their potential to the best of their ability and refuses to let it go to waste.
I want to see a generation where true and pure love is not uncommon.
I want to see a generation where the term “talking” is nonexistent.
I want to see a generation that believes lust wants, but love waits.
I want to see a generation that passionately pursues Jesus.
I don’t know about you, but that is the generation I want to see.
That is the generation I desperately pray for.

I believe in this age like no other and I also believe it just takes one valiant prayer for a movement to begin.
So, from here on out, I should say that our generation will regain the value of trust, the value of conversation, and small talk will be the new start to meaningful purposes.
