Attitude towards living
December 11, 2009 8:53am CST
Now-a-days we've been losing patience. We get irritated on trivial issues and like to fight blaming someone. The situation was not so worse an age ago. I've heard from my parents that in their times people were so patient and hospitable. They had deep faith in religion. Anything good or bad happened, they held God responsible for that. They were so friendly with people indifferent of known or unknown. But now we're happy to blame someone for this kind of events and go crazy to punish someone. This attitude of ours should be changed.

I think people have changed and negatively too. We have no patience any more and we are always ina hurry. We don't notice what is going on around us and we have beomce very egoistic. Simple things that we used to do years ago are now overlooked. How many times does someone stop and help an elderly person cross the busy road nowadays? When I was a child more people had a smile too. Not they push and shove, hoot their horns in their cars and just want everything immediately. This is a very sad world now compared to when I was younger and unless we teach our children how to respect others again then I fear it can only get worse.

Yes ma'am. You're 100% right that people have changed in a negative way. With the increasing usage of machines we've also turned mechanical having no feelings for others. We've been not only egoistic but also impatient, envious and shamelessly selfish. We've got no respect for the old people, let alone helping them. The youths of today are representing themselves in the worst manner, pushing and shoving the elders in the crowds, no time for curtsy. Sometimes the unruly youths are found busy mugging people. The young generation consider their parents as a burden when they've grown up. How pathetic! No love for their parents who have brought them up with so much care and love. It's time to teach them how to respect others warning them of its opposite behaviour. May Allah help us improve this situation soon. Have a nice day.

You have painted the picture exactly as it is. Everything is in decline - and this is supposed to be progress? I wonder if this is the beginning of the end because unless some values are placed back where they should be, I see no great future ahead for the next generations
