Essay 33: Raising a Family

November 4, 2015 9:59 am

From the beginning of new millennium, people have been experiencing numerous new inventions variously compared by people living a decade ago. This leads them to having a new variation of modern life according to which the young tend to be different from their parents who experienced in their own time. It is felt that it is very hard to make life easier with serious problems that should be taken into account in near future. Different visions of young people have brought about new set of difficulties that are deeply rooted in the lack of sufficient self-knowledge and high expectation in every dimension of life whether individually or socially.
Firstly, these days, young people are not fully aware of developing acceptable level of self-knowledge which is a must. For instance, in Iran, most of parents behave towards their youngsters in a squeamish way and do not teach them some approaches through which they can understand themselves, their potential and even some crucial life skills. As this shows, it will take ages to reach their maturity in order to have a healthy relationship with themselves, their parents and society. Thus, conscious knowledge of the young is an inevitable key for creating the best family in far future.
Additionally, having high expectation of materialistic values plays a noticeable role in today’s world. Almost all people like to have luxurious apartments, upper-class cars, smart-phones and so on and so forth. The mind of the young almost always engages with a huge amount of state-of-the-art technology as if they lived in a fancy world. This phenomenon exists both in the families either in cities or isolated villages. Therefore, the young will take lesson from the lives of their parents, ancestors and also successful families in accordance with their cultural and psychological similarities if the adolescent compare simply.
To conclude, lacking self-knowledge and having high expectation are barriers to today’s young people to establish a close-knit family in the right time. It is expected that the young might raise a family if they focused on the above-mentioned problems as far as they could. In so doing, their dreams can come true. 355/ 53

    Would you rather be happy yet slow-witted and unimaginative, or unhappy yet bright and creative? For instance, would you rather live the life of a brilliant yet tortured artist, such as Vincent van Gogh, or that of a happy but carefree soul who is a bit simple-minded?

    I prefer to challenge this question at first and bring up my viewpoint next.
    There are different successful people in the world who reached the apex through different procedures. Although some have faced torture to reach their goals, it does not mean we have to necessarily lose something in our life to climb the ladder of success. Anyway, I suppose the most enjoyable part of life is making progress and relying on your abilities to flourish and thrive. So, I personally go for intelligence and innovation rather than happiness along with naivety. Many people have lived an ordinary life so far and repeating this story can never excite me at all. We need to gain new adventurous experiences and foster our abilities so as to break out of comfort zone.
