They say this is the Computer Age. To hell with computers! This is the Selfish Age. This is the I-don’t-give-a-shit Age. This is the What’s-in-it-for-me Age.

I’m not an angel, I don’t even have an idea how they look like but I can’t help not getting pissed by the modern day attitude of most young people. First of all, the young people expect everyone to be sending money into their accounts—mom, dad, aunts, uncles, big friends, relationship partners etc and all they give back is nothing or a flimsy thank you. During holiday or weekend visits to relatives, they only seek to get fantastic comfort and the usual take-this-for-your-transport gift. The idea of washing the dirty plates in the sink or the dusty car parked outside does not cross the mind.

Why do we like to receive but barely give out? What’s your excuse? Okay, you’re a student and you’re unemployed. Come on! It’s not always about money pal. Being a student doesn’t stop you from helping that old woman cross a busy road. When last did you send your mom a text telling her how beautiful she is and how much she means to you? Don’t you know that a simple phone call can bless the health of that aged and lonely uncle of yours?

It is so hard for you to click the ‘like’ icon or comment on a sister’s beautiful post because you feel she’s not in your class. You make it a habit to ignore things that are important to others. I was almost heart broken when a friend of mine recently contested for a competition that required online votes to step up his position. Out of the hundreds of ‘friends’ he had on Facebook, less than fifty (50) gave their votes. I asked myself, if these people can’t tap an icon for a friend’s progress, what will happen if he asks for a pint of blood on his dying bed?
Pride and selfishness is doing more harm than good to relationships so what’s the point feeling too proud to show some love when you have nothing to lose? We all will end up in the same mud, six feet down, just so you know.

So what’s it gonna be then? Get out of your shell and do something sweet for someone—maybe one or two persons or more—just do something out of your regular way. Surprise someone and don’t expect anything back. It could be a good deed or a lovely gift but let it benefit the recipient. You can start by sending recharge card to this number: 08036835694.*winks*
