Eclectic Curiosity

Posted on July 17th, 2003, by Steve Hardy in Archives, Uncategorized. No Comments

I found this interesting thought in one of the local alt-weeklies here. It’s from a letter responding to an earlier article in the paper about the effects of divorce on kids.

Our society today has instant gratification as its crux. As a recent graduate, my only concern is that I have too many options. I can see 20 countries in six months, I can feasibly attain any career goals I may set myself and I have the right to accept nothing less than true love. In short, I have been brought up to believe that the only thing I cannot do is “settle.” In this way, if I were to embark upon a relationship that was to prove to be unhappy, under no circumstances would I stay in it. And under no circumstances would I fear being past it or left on the shelf.
