'We're all so busy getting stressed in today's world'
Today’s world is a dangerous place where all of us are in a race against time.
We have greater access to amenities and luxuries but we do not have the peace of mind and happiness we had a few years ago.
Despite the advent of technology, our routines are hectic and stressed. We’ve all become extremely self-centered and artificial and barely have time to spare for others. Our ultimate goal in today’s world is nothing but survival. We are losing the basic elements in life; humanity, patience and kindness.
I have developed a fear of today’s world where people have become so obsessed with themselves. Earlier, there was a time we felt sorry on the loss of an innocent life.
People have turned a blind eye to the problems and worries of others. Just as we lack patience, similarly, the food that we consume lacks taste and flavour these days. Even the best of restaurants cannot offer the taste that existed in basic items in the past.
Today, nothing holds value except monetary benefit. People are increasingly becoming intolerant in life and lack patience. Time is flying, people are dying in groups each day. All these feelings and issues surrounding us clearly indicate that there is something seriously wrong with our world today. To me, this is a major cause of concern. We need to stop, think and reflect on life and understand the reasons that led us to less stress and more peace of mind in the past.
