Let me just go on and rip off the band-aid: it doesn’t shock us anymore that our friends, classmates, elder siblings or building buddies are illegally consuming narcotics or drinking underage. The millennial generation is so at ease with this fact, because, well, doing drugs or drinking isn’t really considered odd any more. In fact, if you happen to be (and I quote someone I really can’t name) ‘one of those clean souls’ who swear not to touch alcohol until they can legally do so, you are the one who is considered weird or unusual. This is exactly where peer pressure comes into play.
In the sixteen years, I spent on planet earth, it took me only 11 to realize that life is nothing but millions of problems strung together and momentarily spaced up by superficial happiness that we get from solving those very tribulations.

Even though I should have been wild with joy at the prospect of finally spending a few well-earned hours of fun with my best buds after a long month of uncompromising hard work, my mind wandered over to the Instagram account on my forgotten phone, neglected until then. It is then when I realized just how deeply Instagram has affected our lives, and like every single thing in this world, it had two sides of a coin to consider.
A family is the essence of everyone’s life and who doesn’t want to have a happy family! Not a single family, I have ever seen that goes without any arguments or discussions, but that is also a part of life and one must face it with guts. Now, not ironically but ironically a family is incomplete when it hasn’t any gossip about a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law 🙂 So, how it is ironical! Because that’s the topic of discussion today. Earlier, when you want to share your opinion; it was only magazine’s or newspapers that too restricted to some women only.
