Lets face the facts; we have reached an age of where we are legally considered adults. It’s a True story of every Indian in Mid 20’s.
Since our inception into this world, a warmth hand held my nibble fingers to walk us through the plains and potholes. Not letting off the hook, afraid! That I may fall off the hook that said, “We trust you, but we don’t trust the world.”
Our parents drill down and cater to every basic and other necessities of life to man us up with equipped value systems and morals as a survival instinct in this cruel world. And help us define the initial understanding of rights and wrongs.
Mid 20’s Era:
As we grow older, what I precisely call the mid 20’s. It’s an era of educated and professional individuals living an independent life. As time pass by, we mould our experiences to design our own set of beliefs, perception and opinions of the world and society in general trending with the current generations. Believe me, it’s “The Clash’s Of the Titans” (Rather Era). It’s the generation gap we fail to resolve and understand between the mid 20’s and 50’s.
Moreover the paradigm and dynamics change in the family. We are held up with constant efforts to deal with parent’s emotional and financial dependencies, & most importantly with old age/retirement insecurities. As kids, we are torn apart between doing things that make family happy over things that make you happy. It’s a phase of frustration, where we adults are still treated as kids and barred from taking important decisions of our life.
It’s an era of misunderstandings, where the elders of the family negate our thoughts and opinions, as they think we are still kids. A continuous hike in parent’s expectations from their descendants on life, and when those expectations drip down slowly, leads to constant unpleasant arguments, disappointment among parents and their wards.
It’s high time we let the fingers be detached from the grip and aspire to live & stay independently. Try to fight wars against life with a one man’s army. Take life on with swishing swords to rise up after every fall. Trust me! That’s how and what life is all about. You are solely responsible for all the decisions taken in life. No decision would be right or wrong. But explains a simple fact, not all decisions didn’t work in your favor. It only teaches you to grow with each and every experience. My friends, welcome to the circus!
No one is right or wrong. It is the change in perception and attitude that has to be dealt with.
