Let's analyze the sadness of modern society

The sadness of a society is the faithful reflection of the sadness of the men and women that compose it, perhaps the more cares we have in our lives the sadder we will be, perhaps for some it is difficult to understand, but I see with concern the reflection of the deep sadness that many people that compose this current society radiate, is that we look for modernism but we find disappointments and sadness, sometimes I ask myself:

Is it that perhaps as a society we are pushed to meet quotas of achievements that are difficult to meet?

Sometimes I talk a lot with older people that I consider wise and very mature, who have lived long enough to answer many questions, among them are questions related to certain aspects:

In the times of our grandparents, was there a lot of suffering?

In the past, did people often talk about stress, anxiety, depression, sadness, loneliness?

Of course, these elderly people do not answer me, before we did not hear about that, and of course I understand that my parents were educated in contact with nature, without having to compete to achieve difficult goals, it was a life in harmony, but why did things change for the modern man?

It is that we tend to live more isolated, we need more link with technology, with machines, less contact with nature, in particular I have had to live the time when any procedure such as going to the bank to make a transaction allowed me to socialize with other people, but reached the point where I got to the bank and they told me that certain transaction could be done by a web page on the internet.

In spite of everything if we do not propose them we can leave behind the sadness of modern man, for this we must socialize more, seek contact with nature and animals, that will lead us to an environment of minimizing the sadness inherited from the new technological development of modern man.

I know it is not easy to leave these sadnesses behind when the pandemic still hits us and invites us to live in an isolated world where socialization is almost completely digital, but every time we have an opportunity to break paradigms it is important that we do it.



Hello friend, sadness is an emotion and therefore will be present in our lives, it is normal, now that we turn it into something pathological is different, we must learn to accept the situations and face them, it is our decision, pain is inevitable but suffering is our decision, we are the owners of our actions, so we can decide not to suffer and do something to change things or simply move forward with one more life experience.

This is a generation called the "crystal generation", in which many of this generation have to deal with sadness and loneliness on a daily basis. This may be due to the fact that the technology that unites millions of people creates an existential void because they do not have a digital identity.

Hi @sandracarrascal
Some time ago I read a book titled "The Loneliness of Man", by Erich Fromm, in which through some essays, some years ago, he raised what could happen to human beings in psychological and social terms because of all the technological things that were being established.

Loneliness, depression, stress, are more and more present in our society, and it has to do with the decrease of real socialization to a great extent.

Hello friend @sandracarrascal, very good post! The situation you present is very real. We should focus on keeping that contact with nature, animals and people alive, especially in our children, so that they don't depend only on the digital to be active, that will help us to stay mentally and psychologically healthy. Greetings

Hi dear @sandracarrascal
I miss the simple life of before, the calm and quiet family Sundays, technology has caused an anxiety to see all the programs by being on all social networks and we have stopped talking to our family and friends
