about it.

Having good morals is important because that’s what guides you through life, and it says alot about you. If your values are reputation, and popularity someone might guess that you care a lot about what other people think about you. But if you value positivity and kindness more than anything else you won’t be so easily criticized.

I personally value true beauty, positivity, and self-respect, and I feel like that does describe me, and my goals in life. I think having good morals makes you a more respectable person, and I feel like there a lot of people who want that in life.

It takes a lot of self control to hold up those values and morals. You value things for yourself, not for other people. I work on finding beauty in everything for me, not so other people can say “ wow, she finds beauty in everything!”

I also think that mental health is a very prevalent issue. Generation Z, as a whole, has more mental health problems than most. I also feel that generation Z is more educated, and inclusive.

If you look at the statistics liberals are more educated than conservatives ( not to say that you can’t be educated and Republican or uneducated and Democrat ) Generation Z grew up with technology, and expects information and entertainment ASAP. Most of Generation Z is very inclusive and multicultural.

I know this was kind of a long article, but I could talk about this for hours honestly.  Mental health is very important to me along with having a positive mindset. I think this is going to be a series, but let us know what you think about it!

Look for Part 2 coming Thursday.
