Today when I am writing this piece, my heart is filled with so many emotions; some of them encourage me to write this and tell all the reality of sick mentality.

Life is not always full of colors; we are the ones who make it colorful by inserting our dreams into it. But when those dreams are shattered, the only hope one can turn to is of the parents.

But when we have no one on our side i.e. neither our family nor our friends, then we tend to have so many mental problems. This is one of the main reasons why we suffer from depression. The main motive of everyone’s life is self-satisfaction.

We all know human nature, we all are never satisfied. We always say that we have our parents back and they will always support us emotionally, financially and with other aspects but it’s not always the same.

There are some children and youngsters, especially young girls, who are not getting parental support.

As I have also seen several young girls in my society sharing their experience, being a girl, and knowing how they are being forced to get married merely at the consent of their parents.

Let’s be independent citizens, and without criticizing and interfering with each other’s personal issues, let’s support them in their field of interest.

The parents of this generation are not emotionally with their children. As they are so busy with their works, youngsters these days are lacking love and guidance from their parents.

The youngsters of our country need to be given guidance for proper future, but they are getting pressure from their family for marriage in a rich house.

In my opinion, getting married in a family where they have name and fame has no sense if the couple does not get the love and respect from the family.

We are really lacking peace and love, the violence is increasing each day and people have become the victims of mental trauma. So, all the youngsters’ feelings must be respected and loved.

I believe the fact that they can deviate from the track for a while and get involved in wrong activities but the parents should be there to teach and guide them.

We can do nothing with pressure but with love and support, we can do a lot.

The youngsters of our country really need to be taught about our culture and tradition by their family, but some parents are too fussy, just blaming their children for not getting good marks or handing them out with friends, etc.

Being a secondary level student it’s my responsibility to take a stand for my fellow youngsters and respect their ambition, and their passion in certain fields.

The youngsters of today are the leaders of the future; so, I humbly request each and every citizen of our country to be responsible in their actions towards their children.

Parents are the ones who know us and want to make us successful, I agree that we are incomplete without our family support. But I humbly request all the families to respect each other’s ambition and let us do the thing in which we are happy.

To take a stand for the truth and rights of each other and empower citizens of our country is the need of the hour.

And as a responsible citizen of my country, I request all my fellow friends to respect their parents and always listen to them as they always give us good suggestions which will be important for us in future.

We are living in a developing country so it’s high time for all of us to choose between right and wrong and make a difference.

The sick mentality of early marriage and marriage in a rich family should come to an end now.

In this competitive world, we should complete our studies and develop our careers first.

It pains my heart every time I hear about the unfulfilled dreams of so many young girls and women because of the misunderstanding in the family.

Let’s be independent citizens, and without criticizing and interfering with each other’s personal issues, let’s support them in their field of interest.

To take a stand for the truth and rights of each other and empower citizens of our country is the need of the hour.

Hard work, respect and perseverance can lead us to success. If you take to put your career first, the rest will happen when the right time comes.
