When did “meh” become the norm? Why do we tolerate, even accept, mediocrity? Why is everyone so indifferent and why has it become okay?
It’s practically part of our very culture to be cynical and sarcastic.
I remember being asked countless times as a little kid, “what do you want to be when you grow up?” I’d always answer something like “an astronaut” or “Indiana Jones.”
Now, little kids will always have a naive perspective when it comes to the future but they always see it with total optimism and full of possibilities… and they’re completely genuine about it. You and I were both like that at one point, so what happened to us?
