    This will be my first comment on TIL. And deservedly so. This article right here is easily the best thing I’ve read in a long time. It was a long time coming.

    I am 24. And I can attest to the points outlined in this article as very true. I am not afraid to point out that parents are raising mentally weak and emotionally irresponsible offsprings. My generation is gradually losing touch with the resilience that is necessary to wade through life.

    We are happy to scurry under the lazy umbrella of “depression” and “mental illness” to excuse our weakness and spinelessness to face life.

    I say this without reservations, it is easier to attain phenomenal greatness in this generation than it’s ever been in other generations before us. Thanks to the collective mental weakness, and entitlement of our generation, the competitive bar for success has been dropped unbelievably low. “I can’t come and kill myself” is out anthem and justification for weakness and mental cowardice.

    Suicide is increasingly becoming the next cool thing. And anybody who speaks the harsh truth to my generation is tagged “insensitive” and “unfeeling”.

    Thank you for this article. It warms my heart to know parents are waking up to this counterproductive trend. Better still, I hope they equally take steps to salvage this rot while they still can.
