Why is this generation all about "me" - the "I" syndrome? People always want for themselves, want more, want, want, want, never able to be happy with what they have. Not happy with the face or body God gave us. Not happy with the toys and things we have - always wanting more and bigger and better. Wanting everything for oneself, forgetting others in need?
I had a recent experience with a person - everything had to be centered around her and her needs. Walking by a store she'd say "I want." When we came to a photo spot, she'd jump in front and say "take picture of me." When there was a little bit of drink left in a bottle at dinner time, if I said "I can use a little more" - she'd say "I'll take it" and down the rest. When frustrated with someone, she'd expect allegiance to her and want the others to follow her to her avoiding place.
When someone would try to hand me a card, she'd grab it and said she'll keep it (then never give it to me - lost it or threw it away). If we had a plan to go see someone, she'd say that it's her turn to decide, and didn't want me to meet with the person we'd made the appointment with. I finally said this meeting is important and has been planned, so she got angry with me and let me go see this person, and then she avoided me for days. It got so annoying. I didn't know how to handle it - she was so strong willed.
I do know that I do not want to be that kind of selfish. I saw the "me" attitude to a high degree and I didn't like it. I keep trying to track myself to make sure I do not follow this attitude, that no one else can see it coming from me. And then I think of society - it's such a me-oriented society.
People just want, and want, and want. They think they are entitled, and privileged. They feel that they are owed an opportunity, or a job, or something. They think their mindset will get them to high places - but that negates the fact that God is in charge, and we need God to help us in life. We can't control our lives - God does. If you think you have everything under control, You might find out that God is running the show, and things may not turn out as you wish.
Try thinking of others, not of yourself. Think of how you can help others and pray for guidance. Get rid of the "me" attitude. Think of how God is in control, and ask Him to guide you to the path He wants you to follow. He knows best and perhaps you think isn't what God wants for you. Follow God, not "me."
