It's also reeeaaally affecting my life, it's like an awful addiction where I just have to be watching it at all times of the day, to the point where I disable my Facebook account when I'm at uni cos it takes over my study time. Strangely enough, I don't have this problem with Tumblr/Pinterest/Instagram, just FB takes over my life. I've recently got Twitter so I'll see how that one goes but yes. It makes me a hell of a lot more unsociable!!
After one friend asked me what 'reading non-fiction' meant when I was discussing my hobbies.
I think it's just that the younger generations are less strong mentally and emotionally, I have no idea why this is. But it seems to me that people are loosing their mental toughness and are less able to cope with any type of criticism.
Though this may seem like a pretty basic rule of getting-a-job etiquette, 8 percent of recent college grads brought their parents along to an interview, according to an Adecco survey cited by the Wall Street Journal. What’s more, a full 3 percent actually had their parents sit in on their job tryout.
Maybe, maybe not. But I think the reasons you put forth are just those, reasons or causes for the lack of mental and emotional toughness.
The media and parents may be a contributing factor but is that enough to directly cause this seemingly widespread issue?
