But yeah, kids are way too sensitive these days. That's one of the byproducts of telling them that they're all winners and should be proud of
themselves when they accomplish nothing.
So true. And all this because of the generation of deluded narcissists we're raising this days. Take a look at to our kids. All hoked up in the
virtual word, games, social networks...Once unhooked and facing reality, they get intimidated, scared and feel unprotected. Using computer games, our
sons and daughters can pretend they are Olympians, Formula 1 drivers, rock stars or sharpshooters. And while they can turn off their Wii and Xbox
machines and remember they are really in dens and playrooms on side streets and in triple deckers around America or Canada, that is after their hearts
have raced and heads have swelled with false pride for “being” something they are not.
Sad reality which we all contributed in creating. False pride can never be sustained. The bubble of narcissism is always at risk of bursting.
That’s why young people are higher on drugs than ever, drunker than ever, smoking more, tattooed more, pierced more and having more and more and
more sex, earlier and earlier and earlier, raising babies before they can do it well, because it makes them feel special, for a while. They’re
doing anything to distract themselves from the fact that they feel empty inside and unworthy.
