This generation of people, i.e. teens or young adults are way too sensitive than opposed to older people
It’s called adaptation. People today do not need to be as strong as the older generation as there is no need to. People during the World War may not have been strong enough to survive it, but they strengthened as the war demanded mental strength. You say people now are sensitive, but PTSD exists for a reason. It is not a question of whether people are sensitive or not, but rather a question of how reality differs from past to present. Older generations did not have a lot of the issues or benefits that current generations do now and their circumstances were different, thus resulting in actions and mental health variations. The definition of “sensitive” itself changes from past to present as the necessity to behave in a certain manner no longer exists. What may seem like an issue now, might not have been an issue in the previous years, and that is simply due to evolution. Emotions such as fear, sadness, madness, vulnerability, have all existed for years, but it is a question of how and where these emotions have to be used. In contrast, yes, current generations may overreact to what you may consider a simple thing, but for younger generations that is their response. You can’t compare apples to oranges, just like you can’t compare people now to people then since situations and settings have changed.
