What’s misleading our youth? Which ones more important? Quality or quantity?
We are clearly not able to distinguish from the two, some obviously focus more on quantity, I’m not saying u should not want that I mean that’s totally understandable, every person needs to fulfil his or her needs within an appropriate amount of time, but in my opinion we all should always keep in mind that quantity can’t stand alone, it always needs quality beside it, because if it doesn’t then that just becomes a job, a forced interaction with people and your gadget for more than half of the day, only difference is that you don’t get paid😂, this in return frustrates you, agitates you and dare i say might drive some of you crazy. You talk to a person day and night but you don’t know whats lacking, you keep thinking about it in your head, you keep assuming stuff that aren’t really there in a way it does drive you crazy, you don’t realise it’s all because of two things lacking which is either both parties are not participating or putting the effort or like i said before the lack of the importance of QUALITY.
Our world is a very complicated place to live in now, having so much in your bowl to digest all at the same time and i admit, it gets really hard to balance the two things, either you give too much useless quantity or too less “quality rich quantity”(i bet you can’t say it ten times faster 😂) which in our developing world and exuberant youth is becoming the sad reality.
Now i believe friendships out of school or working place are just based on awkward “hello-hi’s” once in a while or a 5 minute talk on the weather or school if “accidentally” met on an unplanned family trip during the weekend to do groceries…yipee 😑 It is really disappointing and sad to see this so common now, in all of us, me too, and despite it being a reality i have always tried to change it at least for myself, i have always tried giving my time to everyone who needs it, and to also keep in mind its NOT “useless quantity” because i would love to get a response in the same way so i have always made sure that’s how i communicated with others too.
A lot of things lack in a lot of us including myself, i am not perfect, nobody is perfect. Nobody wants to “waste their time” with others, deliberately keeping themselves busy, scrolling through every single thing on their feed yet not being able to reply to a certain person or people is what is discouraging and for me this shows how well a person is inside out, that if they have a bit of humility within themselves to sometimes maybe take into consideration another persons effort and giving a little back just a little is what might make this world a little better, make the people little less self obsessed, little less arrogant, and is what could make this world in general a healthier, calmer and happier place to live in for ourselves and others.
So next time YOU try to ignore SOMEONE think twice, how would you feel if the same happened with you when you needed them the most?🙂
