The current generation ages 18 to 25 have general commonalities.  First, they over analyze everything.  I could guess at the unifying force that created this phenomenon but in this case I am just making an observation.  Questions like; "If I say this how will he/she react.  What did you really mean by what you said?   Or, Don't tell me to do something, tell me exactly what you want me to do."  Low self esteem, lower trust of others.
The second commonality is lack of commitment.  This generation wants to think about it.  They don't want to attempt something that may fail.  It goes so far as the abuse of the word "like."  It is not "It's red!"  It is more often, " you know, its like, you know, like redish, sometimes, but not all the time, like you know."
I think it would do the world a lot of good if people, particularly this group would buck up a little, find their center and their place and decide to excel in it.  You should make decisions in life, move on them, and modify them as you go.  Sure footed and sure minded work so much better for everyone involved.  When you are confident in yourself the people around you are more confident in you and you breed confidence in those connected to you.  Don't be a bully, but make your way with purpose.
