Me, Myself, and I

In a world that is increasingly driven by individualism, the attitude of "I, Me, Myself" has become a prevalent social issue in the current generation. 


This selfish mindset prioritises self-interest and personal gain over the well-being of others - simple actions of lending a helping hand and taking over the load of others on our shoulders might help people so much more than we think! Such an attitude leads to a lack of empathy, cooperation, and community spirit since there is no one willing to do anything for anyone.


The rise of social media and technology has exacerbated this attitude, as individuals can curate their online personas to project an image of success, wealth, and happiness. This constant need for validation from others has led to a culture of narcissism and self-absorption, where people are more concerned with their own image and status than with the needs and requirements of others.


This focus on the self has also contributed to a sense of entitlement and a lack of accountability. 

Many individuals believe that they are deserving of success and happiness without putting in the necessary effort or considering the impact of their actions on others. 

This mindset can lead to selfish behaviour and incorrect actions such as cheating, lying, and manipulation as individuals prioritise their own interests above all else.


The "I, Me, Myself" attitude can contribute to feelings of isolation and loneliness, as individuals become more focused on their own needs and desires and less on building meaningful connections with others. This can lead to a lack of social support, community spirit, and a sense of disconnectedness from the larger society, which can have negative impacts on mental health and well-being including which may take a major turn on our health leading to issues like depression.


To address this social issue, individuals need to cultivate empathy, compassion, and solidarity with others. By actively listening to and supporting those around us in small steps, we can foster a sense of belonging and community that goes beyond our own self-interests and self-centered approach.


Additionally, practising gratitude and humility towards people who have helped mould us into ourselves can help combat feelings of entitlement and promote a balanced and ethical approach to life.


Breaking free from the "I, Me, Myself" attitude requires a shift in mindset and a commitment to prioritise the well-being of others. 


By fostering a sense of connection and kindness towards others, we can build a more compassionate and inclusive society that values teamwork and collaboration over individual achievement. It is only through working together as one team and supporting one another as if our own, that we can overcome the challenges and obstacles that we face as a global community.
