Young generation gives up too easily

Published 9:50 am Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Giving up. It’s something that everyone knows is wrong but continues to do on a regular basis. This generation seems to have no endurance for school, relationships, jobs, family, goals, faith and so much more. Well, I think it’s time to take a stand and stop giving in to every bump in the road. It’s time to not give up.

I’m sure we’ve all seen it constantly in our own lives and in the lives of others. School’s too hard so we give up. It’s not worth all the work to build your relationships with friends and family, so we let them die. If everyone learned to work a little more for things, there would be more fulfilling jobs, happy families, and overall better lives.

I think it all starts with peer pressure. If your friends don’t do their homework, why should you? If people stopped caring about what their peers thought or did, it would be so much easier to change this generation. Also, think of the pros and cons. If you give up then you feel like a failure. But, if you keep going then you will get what you want and feel accomplished.
