The youth of India is in a dilemma. It is surrounded by so many gadgets and so much other stuff that he gets exhausted. Every single day is like a struggle to achieve something or the other. He never rests or takes a break. Even in his sleep, he worries about his cellphone, the upcoming day, and everything else that only holds materialistic values.
Here is a list of 10 reasons why the Indian Youth is facing psychological problems.
1. High use of gadgets:
Today’s youth is very active, not in terms of energy but in using electronic gadgets. It hampers the thought process. It prohibits the ability to express one’s feelings to others. When there are fewer gadgets, we intend to spend more time in face-to-face interactions rather than texting.
With electronic devices comes frustration. The reason is simple. We believe in sharing our feelings on digital media, but we forget that our conscience doesn’t understand digital media.
3. Jack of all trades, master of none:
We try to accomplish more than one thing at a time. For the greed of money or saving one’s time, we work hard but not only on one thing. We set our foot on two different boats in the race to financial freedom, thereby turning into the jack of all trades but master of none.
Being a part of the digital era, we want everything at our fingertips or on computer screens. We want everything to be lightning-fast. But this speed is not possible every time and everywhere. We need to have patience in every stage of life.
5. Money mindfulness:
This problem is not only for the youth but also for society. Society is so dead bound on becoming practical that it is now making decisions to achieve Vitamin ‘M’. Although money is an important asset required to sustain, that doesn’t mean it is everything. One should note that MAN-MADE MONEY, HOWEVER, TODAY MONEY MAKES THE MAN. Strange, but true!
Greed is an attribute, which drives a person to want more and more of everything. An accomplished desire gives rise to another. One should relax and enjoy the achieved target.
7. Lack of Discipline:
The youth lacks discipline. Here discipline doesn’t mean following a strict timetable of waking and sleeping—discipline in work and providing the deliverables within its stipulated time period. One can always adjust their internal schedule according to their own wish.
The youth doesn’t believe in sharing. Rather many people feel that sharing makes them look weak. But that’s not the case. It is okay to cry sometimes and share your feelings with people who care for you. Unless you share, it won’t heal. Then that feeling will change into frustration which will change your habits and behavior, thus turning you into a horrendous person. It also inculcates other problems like depression, suicidal tendencies, etc.
9. Misunderstanding Relationships:
It is good to be in a relationship unless both the people involved in the relationship are mature and helpful. It is not about talking or chatting with each other for hours and hours. It’s about that understanding you build even when you don’t communicate for days at a stretch. But the problem is we are not ready to accept the differences and appreciate the similarities.
10. Unhealthy Competition:
The typical Indian mentality is to compete. Not to compete but to beat others in the field of study or any other sector. But we forget to beat ourselves. We forget that each one of us has a different orientation. We need to identify our interests and walk on that path.
Hence, if we really want to improvise and enhance our skills, we need to focus on where our time is wasted. The question is not only of time but of inner peace. It’s about patience and using the energy in the right direction.
