(Tea Party 247) – If you do a cursory scroll through Twitter, you’ll find a lot of young folk who are constantly left in shambles, total emotional wrecks, over anything and everything. It seems as if younger generations are lost in a constant sea of political correctness, agitation over the state of the world, and the stress of being forced to adapt at break neck speed to the changes happening in our culture.
A new poll has revealed that a whopping 89 percent of UK Gen-Zers say they feel their lives are meaningless, a symptom no doubt of the removal of Christianity and its influence over the culture in their country.
Here’s more from Summit News:
A new poll out of the UK reveals that a staggering 89 per cent of young people aged 18-29 feel their lives are meaningless and without purpose.
30 per cent of youngsters complain about being “stuck in a rut,” while 84 per cent say they are failing to “live their best life.”
One of the primary reasons cited for failing to achieve happiness and purpose is a lack of finances, according to 45 per cent of respondents.
The survey, conducted by Yakult UK, found that 80 per cent of people across all age ranges felt they were living without purpose, but that number drops to 55 per cent for people over the age of 60.
More than a third of Brits would completely start their lives over given the chance.
There are a lot of different factors that probably play into this, but no doubt the constant bombardment of the news cycle on social media is doing a lot of the damage. Add to that the fact some mentally ill hate-filled sack of human waste shooting up public places every week isn’t exactly helping.
These situations are making young people feel like they have no purpose, that the darkness and wickedness in this world is spreading further and further and there’s no way to stop it. This, of course, isn’t true at all, but it certainly seems that way, especially to over emotional young people who have minimal life experience.
It’s more important than ever for kids to break away from screens and actually live a healthy, productive life in the real world, being active in their communities and building real relationships with folks face-to-face.
It’s not healthy to be exposed to the news on a constant basis. Go out and live your lives, find meaning and purpose. It’s out there waiting for you.
