Lack of Harmony & Upsurge Anxiety | The Millennial Youth

Lack of the right attitude (Indiscipline, if I may say so) and Restlessness are homing in the Generation X these days; triggering and forcing us to contemplate on WHY?

We often witness problematic behaviours in our Children, and around. But have we ever tried bringing to light the reasons behind? As I give you the core, I know for sure it won’t come across as the most palatable or an anticipated marking, atleast for most of us.

We (The Adults) are more to be questioned, fairly blamed for such ado patterns in our Children.

Children have been and’ll always be Children: raw and callow, ready to experiment with and explore the world with their age-hemmed vision of life.

Their angled habit of years, make them obey their Parents, WHILST we as Parents start to obey our Children, either out of excessive love and/or benighted indifference. That’s when we open up a whole new can of worms.

The problems start to seep in, with the unruly teenage stimulating them to not just lose their control over themselves, but also make way towards uncontrolled exercise of freedom and improper behaviour.

It’s then, the word ‘NO’ sets them off, making them Defiant Children.

The Parents who do not put their foot down at the right time usually have Children, crushing the dreams of Parents and never having one, of their own. Therefore, it becomes imperative for every Parent to remember that

“Discipline Is Not a Punishment But It Is The First Act of Love, which stops a child from getting astrayed and wasting this precious gift, Life.”

As Parents, Teachers & Mentors, it is our duty to bring them up giving the right values-The Samskāras, and as the word says “that which has been put together’ and ‘that which puts together’. Absence of values will only lead to disposition of volition, turning life full of regrets and repentance.

Children are soils with the most fruitive tendencies. Don’t force, Inspire them. Not just Teach, Make them Live these values.

-Values are more important in life than fortunes

-Being together is more important than getting ahead of others

-Accepting responsibility is more important than asking for rights

-Obeying is more important than commanding

-Admitting mistakes is more important than accusing others

-Being gentle is more important than acting tough because gentleness is a sign of strength and culture while violence and cruelty are inhuman, animal traits

Give the younger generation these few simple values and it will surely help to carve a better, more responsible human being out of them and ultimately a Better Nation.

Values in the Trivialities of Life

Micro and Macro Economics are two major branches of Economics. I remember how my Teacher used to make us understand the difference between the two, “Macro economics is what is applicable at the National or society level while Micro economics is the application of same concept at a smaller level of an individual or family etc.”

With the wisdom of these growing and passing years, I now, know the veiled relevance behind it.

If to run and develop a Nation, contribution of all on a whole is required like in Japan & Korea, similarly, to run a household contribution of each member is a must. If we just keep using the resources of a country and furthermore in homes, it will only won’t put us in the position of a GUEST, temporary to the nation & to the house.

To be treated like one of the family and to boot the luxuries of having one, we need to start contributing and air the attitude of service. Put aside the egos we home in us, for taking up small tasks and aerial spire Humility. Absence of it will only lead to regret & resent the benefits of others.

My contribution to the household today was:

  1. Dusting the house as it is for everyone
  2. Setting clothes
  3. Filling water bottles
  4. Filling water in cooler
  5. Watering plants
  6. Soaking clothes
  7. Removing and later fixing curtains after wash

My contribution to myself was…

  1. Eating healthy breakfast
  2. Doing little yoga
  3. My blood check up at a camp in society
  4. Talking and chatting to my friends
  5. Later reading a book/writing my book
  6. Fixing and sewing my dress

Even to the smallest of acts like cleaning cheese cage & opening main door to the bell also serve as mindful hand-outs.

So, Get up….Gear up & Show up for all the small & big jobs of the house, do the daily chores, be responsible for yourself, your family-friends-neighbors, to your society/nation and topmost towards this human form.

Respect it! Play your role of a humanitarian.
