Today's youth is more decisive and they are rather impatient lot, writes Seema Sharma.india Updated: Jul 18, 2006 17:12 IST
Today's youth is different from their earlier counterparts. They are better informed, they are more decisive, they are more adventurous and they are rather impatient lot. For them life runs a bit fast. And they have to match the speed somehow. It works very well for some areas of our functioning and existence, as it befits it.
The other areas of our functioning e.g. relationship building and its sustenance require a patient, careful, nurturing and supportive attitudes and behaviors from both sides.
Into which the youngsters still need to polish their skills properly. Impatience in establishing a relationship and impatience in calling it off is no more considered a matter of much hulla. It is simply understood in terms that 'we didn't get along. No issues'.
Each unit involved in the dynamics of relationship knows the degree of intolerance to difference and frustration in each other and hence a fear. The insecurity arises as there is this constant knowledge that falling apart is no big deal, it can happen anytime because of any reason.
Youngsters also become apprehensive as they see the relationships made into mockery, every now and then, around them. The general environment reflects that all can decide whatever they want to decide. This has given rise to quick and unidirectional decisions. This status is disastrous in the domain of relationships.
We must always remember that if the option of walking out is one of the first choices in life then most of us would not hesitate in opting for it, paving way for an insecure and apprehensive world.
