We are definitely a social species. Social media makes people depressed because it replaces actual human interaction with a poor facsimile of it.

Many studies have found that the number and depth of human relationships have a deep impact on mood and well being, as well as other aspects such as job and career opportunities, which also correlate with a happy life.

People have unrealistic expectations today. Want too much, travel too much consume too much. It's unsustainable.


I don't know many millenials or younger who "want too much". They find consuming for the sake of consuming shallow and boring. Most people under 40 just want to make the most out of their lives by having memorable experiences.

We have more forms of entertainment than ever before, more TV channels than ever before yet people are more bored than ever before.


The quality of mass entertainment is usually really poor because it has to pander to as many people as possible and be careful not to say anything of relevance or importance. So it really doesn't matter if you have 100 or 1000 channels if you can't find even one damn thing worth watching.

"The most bored people are usually the most boring!"


This is plainly not true. Most people thrive in some environments but not others.

Do you prefer cycling while sitting on the metal pole? I figured.

You may be correct that people like that stuff but that wasn't the point. Even people who like things makes them depressed. You are depressed.

Humans haven't evolved to have the type of social circles we have today.

If you don't know many younger people who want too much then you don't know many younger people.

Humans haven't evolved to have the type of social circles we have today.. If you don't know many younger people who want too much then you don't know many younger people.

Indeed, the fashion and tech industry thrives off the under 30s wanting the latest must haves.

I think with tech social circles aren't private anymore, folk become too self aware and insecure, instead of just doing what they want all day, no status updates, no Snapchat image of lunch etc.. just off radar pleasing only themselves.
