The Me Me Syndrome


Sometimes I look around & I am worried about our generation. ……Before you roll your eyes  just wait … Hold on.  (As a good friend of mine would say stay CALM) Yes I admit, I have those old woman moments what can I say for myself, I was raised by the most amazing Igbo woman.

I am sure you are wondering why I am worried, so let me put you out of your misery. Kindness, respect, selflessness & chivalry have all become such a rear commodities that it is just plain ridiculous !!! ( I guess that is why it is sometimes mistaken for flirting)

We used to live in a world where everyone looked out for each other . We used to have neighbours that would babysit for you, bake you a cake when you moved. Now we don’t even know the names our next door neighbour.Imagine moving into a new house and someone bakes you a cake… I can bet you would either think the person is just being really nice or they are just plain weird.

We are slowing becoming a generation that doesn’t want to give of ourselves all we want to do is take, take & then take some more. It always has to be about me, me & me again.I am just as guilty as the next person, so no judgement here. We don’t support each other anymore

The question is when has it not always been about you ?? I know it is human nature to be selfish but when was that last time you thought about someone other than yourself ? All I am saying is that it is important for us to always take the time to look outside ourselves.

Looking outside ourselves has a way of making all our problems seem so small & insignificant

You are worried about not having enough money to buy the new iPhone 6 when someone is worried about where their next meal will come from.

You may not be able to afford that new iPhone 6 but you may be able to buy someone a meal. When you start to look outside yourself you will worry less and do little things to make our world a better place.
