hi. few years back, people use to suffer from mid life crisis in their 30's or later.but if you observe today's generation ,they are going through a lot in their 20's. before marriage, they face many heart breaks, they start working soon and want to get retired soon, having cardic attacks at the early age. to achieve financial and social status , they are working day and night! why kids wants to grow soon? don't they want to enjoy their youth ..it looks , as if life is a race for them and they want to come first in everything..i hope they just relax and take it easy.

I think that there has always been stress for all generations but that the stress has started to be more prominent now because of the current state of affairs. The world's economy is really bad, if not at a standstill. People are struggling to pay bills, and to feed their children as well as themselves. I think that if we would all step back and enjoy ourselves a little more it would be better, be easier.

Having so many social pressures in every sector is making the youth work harder and earlier. If I was to sit back and relax right now, then I will achieve success much later. In a fast paced world that we will in, there is no time to sit back. Plus the youth of today is living by the moto "work hard and party even harder". So both things are done work and fun .

The pace of life is just too quick today. You blink and suddenly many years have occurred. It is very horrifying, but a product of today's society. You have to keep up no matter what or will be left behind. Now more than ever, the pace of life is not going to slow down for any reason. It will keep being fast paced and the frustration will mount. For that reason, it causes an insane amount of stress. Which leads to the freak outs that causes a so called mid life crisis to happen. Even if we should slow down, this society, for right or wrong, is not going to allow us. Its always, "go, go, go, go" until you drop and even then you better keep going. Its at such a breakneck pace and its not going to get any slower. Many people lose their sanity after a short amount of time and this leads to problems.

Tr telling that to a kid of today.He/She will think you must be mad. Or they may pooh-pooh you saying you really lack attitude. Where will this competition and the generally shallow living get them? We must only wait and watch. Now that is what the kids aren't able to today. They wantresults like instant coffee. They get into relationship problems because they sre unable to give time to it. Well, our own lives are so different from our parents. A few years back also I could spend some time with my parents. MY father passed away in 2006.About 5 years before tht I could spend time with him in the way he liked. But had he been alive today, I ma doubtful with the very active and highly rushed life that I am going through, I am doubtful if I could have been with him. My mom is alive, and is living in a different city all by herself. Thanks to the attitude of my spouse I am not able to at least let her live with me. This was not the case in their own younger days. The world is moving for the worse. That is why I want something to change this world. I owuldn't mind even if it were 2012.

I'm sure there are many reasons why this is but I can give you one of those reasons. Human nature and social networking collided. One of our nature is to compare ourself to others, Social networking allows us to compare ourselves to the world. You can just extrapolate from this statement and I'm sure it will answer a lot of questions.

Scary! The world is just too business and progress orientated. Not everything is about the latest technology or what your going to do with your future. People sometimes need to take the time to stop, relax, and just do nothing. I'm trying to hold on to being young as long as possible, not trying to have a heart attack and die struggling to make a little extra money when I'm 35. My advice, just relax guys, there's no rush to the future,it's coming, take it easy. :)
