A manifesto for our generation: Let us not be a generation consumed by ourselves.

A perpetual whiff of dissatisfaction flows through our generation.

The world is moving forward but we are losing touch with ourselves.

 

Our lives are dictated by technology.

 

Technology that is supposed to make our lives easier.

Technology that can perform the simplest of tasks.

Technology that shows us what we want to see.

Technology that tells us what we want to hear.

Technology that lets us not be responsible for our own actions.

Technology that lets us modify ourselves to please others.

Technology that hoards us with information we do not need to know.

Technology that fuels the fire for self obsession.

Technology that consumes us.

Technology that allows us to be consumed by ourselves.

 

Let us not be a generation consumed by ourselves.

 

Let us live for now.

Let us live for the present.

Let us live for what is real, not hidden behind layers of filters.

 

Let us live for others.

Let us live for the joy of giving.

Let us live for the smiles that we see on the faces of our loved ones.

 

Let us live for experiences.

Let us live through all our senses.

Let us live for the moments which are greater than the sum of the parts.

 

Let us live to grow.

Let us live to learn.

Let us live to never stop becoming a better version of ourselves.

 

Let us live for love.

Let us live for authenticity.

Let us live for the feelings that are a large part of who we are.

 

Let us put the phone down.

Let us put the tablet away.

Let us look up.

Let us step out for a walk.

Let us have a conversation.

Let us let others in.

Let us not be consumed by technology

Let us not be a generation consumed by ourselves.
