Depression And Contentment: The Psychological Approach

It is obvious from all foregoings that , a major factor why depression is now a common trend , tarnishing images , destroying the life of well to do , promising of young adults is due to their utmost desire to achieve the best, be the best and be better among the best .

This piece is not against all of the above. However , a dispassionate but honest analysis, even as evidenced By social media and every other platforms of technology, has shown that , almost everyone who died ,are dying and , still going to die of depression, are those who find and desire human validations on all sides .

Infact , social media has made it so hard , such that , you find youth in their prime , trying to impress the streets, finding ridiculous, useless human empathy and validations as a yardstick to the measurement of a successful life .

Again, the family , which should be the first and only hope of resort and hope is not helping matters. Another evidence even according to Social analysts, shows that , a lot of families today frustrate the lives of their young ones , forcing them to do what their mates are doing .

As I type this, there at least 80% of families who do not know or understand the source of revenue and income of their kids .

Even those that know , do not care as long as it is fetching out economic prosperity , for all they care . That is why , today , and in the world over , it is quite hard and difficult to find young adults especially in the ages of 20-27 making an honest living .

This piece, as said earlier, is not against anyone or any class or social human strata, but a honest, objective and open minded opinion, as most of us will agree .

To be sure , it will be very kind of everyone in the society to look in ward , Find lasting solutions to these menace and by extension , reduce crime rate and depression among young adults. Until that is achieved, it will be extremely difficult to guarantee a sane , tranquile, moral and logical social system and society .
