You’re certainly entitled to your opinion, but I do find it ironic that you said to “mind your own business” (and even posted a link to Hank Williams Jr song) but found it necessary to post your thoughts on this article.

To answer you fairly, however, this generation is—as you said to some degree—more connected than ever via social media. Instead of dating like the old days (which is what I did), many use social dating apps that have led to ghosting and all other manners of misinformed views of dating.

The organization this piece is posted in works in the realm of mental health and teaching a generation to grow more resilient and bounce back from adversity. Many of them have pointed out that emotional relationships, dating, and friendships have become landmines in today’s society. So that being said, imagine a moment that you’re obese and been told your whole life by your parents that you’re worthless. One day you hear some advice that inspires you to take a next step, so you get a gym membership and decide to start eating healthy. However, while at the gym some dude there makes fun of you or even ostracizes you for being overweight and in the gym? How would you feel?

In effect, that’s what you’ve done here. People come here to read and make proactive changes in their lives and learn wisdom, but you’ve instead belittled the ones who are here to make changes in their lives and grow stronger. As I said, you’re entitled to your opinion, but it doesn’t mean it’s the most compassionate one or what people need to hear when they’re struggling.
