The other day, a young actress Jennifer Lawrence, known from the films “The Hunger Games,” admitted that she was lonely: “Nobody calls me on a date. I sit alone every Saturday night. Guys are somehow disdainful of me. They try to dominate, but it hurts my feelings. With me, you just need to be nice. Sometimes it seems to me that I need a guy from Baghdad who never heard of me. ”
And although Jennifer’s loneliness is very specific, since it depends on her fame, the very essence of loneliness is painfully familiar to many. And this is in those 25 years - namely, so much Lawrence. It would seem, kuti, walk, burn through youth. But no - we sit and suffer in and out of loneliness.
I had something similar difficult in my student years. Although everyone around me said that these were my best years, I did not understand this. I was not at all happy. Yes, occasionally there were merry evenings and tear-off nights, but this is rather an exception.I still did not have a certain circle of friends - I just could not yet decide who I want to see among them.
Although, in fairness it should be said that my classmates seemed to really live their best years. But I was lonely. I didn't even have anyone to talk to. And it seemed to me that I was the only one.
But later I realized that my friends (yes, I found some) felt the same way. Loneliness. We are up to 30, we are the two thousandth generation, supposedly the happiest on earth. We allegedly so often disclaim responsibility and postpone maturity until later, that we can only have fun. [reclam]
But no. Forget the Party Generation. We are rather a Generation of Solitude. And even celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence have not escaped it.
Usually, loneliness is associated with old age. But even a recent study showed that young people 18–24 years old are 4 times more likely to feel lonely than 70 people.
And social networks only exacerbate loneliness. When you look at someone else's filtered and otfotoshoplennaya life, constant pictures with loved ones or friends - it puts pressure on the psyche, when you do not have it. But this, of course, is not the real reason for loneliness.
Everything has changed.The circumstances due to their age and our time put pressure on the younger generation. As a student, you have to choose a profession, find a job, earn money for housing, and also to relax with friends, and, oh yes, it would be desirable to find love.
And in addition to this, you then watch the Instagram tape, and you see there that everything is fine. Of course, you forget all the recent revelations of Internet divs, and you think that this is all a reality. And you just close. You don't tell anyone about your loneliness.
From the recognition of Jennifer Lawrence, a 25-year-old successful and beautiful girl, to the whole world that she is lonely - this is strong. It’s time for all of us to admit it.
