Someone asked me the other day what I felt influenced young people today. My first response? Social media! Forgive me if this turns into a rant but I need to get this out there…
Social media is a huge influence as both a force for good and a force for bad. It is creating a generation that are insecure and don’t know how to socialise and communicate properly. This is damaging! When the young go to apply for jobs they lack the social skills to get the job and many now suffer from anxiety and depression.
I may sound like a kill joy but we need to take the focus off social media and begin spending more time socialising and doing activities such as exercise and yoga or getting involved in organisations such as Scouting. If we all do this things will slowly begin to shift and change.
Sorry if this turned into a rant, I just wanted to get it out there
