It is sad to see the amount of young people that are having emotional problems. It makes me think of the Bible at 2 Timothy 3:1-5 where it says:3 But know this, that in the last days+ critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power;+ and from these turn away." This pretty much describes life as we know it. So it is understandable that young people would feel the effects of this.
